ABOUT ``Rat Race'':
Director Jerry Zucker (``Airplane!'' ``Naked Gun,'' ``Ghost'') marks his return to comedy with ``Rat Race,'' an ensemble film about easy money, greed, manipulation and bad driving. To entertain his wealthiest high rollers, a group that will bet on anything, a Las Vegas casino tycoon pits six ordinary people against each other in a wild dash for $2 million in cash jammed into a locker hundreds of miles away. Each racer's every movement is being monitored by the tycoon and his wealthy friends, who have placed bets on the winner. The only rule in this race is that there are no rules.
Paramount Pictures presents, in association with Fireworks Pictures, an Alphaville / Zucker Production, the comedy ``Rat Race,'' directed by Jerry Zucker and featuring an all-star comedic cast: Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Academy Award® winner Whoopi Goldberg, Academy Award® winner Cuba Gooding, Jr., Seth Green, Jon Lovitz, Breckin Meyer, Kathy Najimy and Amy Smart. ``Rat Race'' is produced by Jerry Zucker, Janet Zucker and Sean Daniel. The original screenplay is written by Andy Breckman. Richard Vane and James Jacks are the executive producers.
