A decade ago, emcee and actor Ice Cube transcended into the rock world when he appeared alongside Limp Bizkit and Korn in 1998’s Family Values Tour. The coexistence of the mutually appreciative rock and rap world also led to the collaboration “Fuck Dying,” Cube‘s musical collaboration with Korn on War & Peace Volume 1.
A decade later, Limp Bizkit‘s Fred Durst and Ice Cube are working together yet again. This time, they collaborate in the form of The Longshots, a film presently in post-production. This will be the sophomore directorial effort by Durst, who directed last year’s The Education of Charlie Banks.
Now backed by Dimension, The Longshots is a dramatic adaptation of the true story of Jasmine Plummer, the first woman to play in the Pop Warner football tournament in 56 years. Plummer is played by Atlantic Records‘ artist Kiki Palmer, who through the help of her mother, reaches out to “Uncle Curtis,” played by Cube, for some tips on fitting in.
