Mattel, Inc. is turning UNO, the popular card game, into a live-action motion picture. The action heist comedy will explore the underground hip-hop scene in Atlanta.
Mattel Films is producing the project with Grammy-nominated rapper Lil Yachty. Quality Control’s Kevin “Coach K” Lee, Pierre “P” Thomas and Brian Sher will also produce on behalf of Quality Films.
“I’m so excited to be part of this film with Mattel,” said Yachty. “I played UNO as a kid and still do today, so to spin that into a movie based on the Atlanta hip-hop scene I came out of is really special. It hits close to home for me.”
Mattel Films’ Robbie Brenner will lead the project as executive producer, along with Kevin McKeon as supervising producer.
“At Mattel Films, we are looking to explore stories that bring our brands to life in unexpected ways,” said Brenner. “UNO is a game that transcends generations and cultures and we look forward to partnering with Lil Yachty, as well as with Coach, P and Brian Sher, to transform the classic UNO game into a comedic action adventure.”
