Ice Cube To Launch New Movie Franchise

Cube teams up with one of his former directors for a new film venture.

Ice Cube and Three Kings director David O Russel are in talks with New Line to create a new movie franchise.

According to deadline.com, the west coast emcee/actor will play a plainclothes detective who isn't afraid to pull the trigger, in what has been described as "thematically a throwback to those 70s revenge films like the Harry Callahan movies that starred Clint Eastwood."

Russel will produce the film with Cube and his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.

Cube is currently starring in Rampart, playing a detective on the trail of a crooked LAPD officer who's at the center of a coruption scandal.

      Man Gran Torino was a tight movie. I had to laugh at your response though, fucking hilarious lol.

      that-movie-sucked-dick. that movie blew soo hard. clint is way too old to make movies now. his new one with faggot-ass matt damon looks awful. gran torino was just his old white mind venting racial frustrations he's had buried inside him his whole life.

    • EddieMurrrphy

      yea it's true cube sucks dick at writing movies. he writes the simplest garbage. it is all so bland, his movies go directly from point a to b to c. in a straight line. nothing reall interesting going on. you missed a great cube movie though. longshots. that deserves a sequel. lol

    Wasn't this the same dude that was in N.W.A.? What was that song they had... oh yeah "Fuck tha Police." Ice-T made the song "Cop Killer" now he plays one on TV... man who isn't selling out these days.

    • moises

      ur a fucking idiot how is acting selling out? selling out would them becoming real cops ur living proof how people come on net just to talk shit and diss people

    • dummiesLikeYou

      I'm sure Cube and Ice T feel the same about cops...crooked cops that is. That's what they were referring to to begin with idiot. Law Enforcement that do what they are supposed to do which is enforce the law get respect...not the ones who bend it for their self gain. If I'm doing 30 mph over the speed limit then I deserve that ticket but don't turn around and put some dope on me if only I did was had an expired inspection sticker...
