LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Entourage" actress Emmanuelle Chriqui is joining the high-wattage cast of "13," a thriller set in the world of Russian roulette.

The remake of the French film "13 Tzameti" also stars Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, 50 Cent and Ray Winstone.

"13" concerns a young man who is forced to participate in a high-stakes game of Russian roulette where wealthy gamblers bet on human lives. Gela Babluani is directing.

Chriqui appears in a recurring role on HBO's "Entourage" as Sloan, the former girlfriend of Eric (Kevin Connolly). She also played Adam Sandler's love interest in the 2008 film "You Don't Mess with the Zohan."
