Ice Cube to Ride Along
Thu, 02 Apr 2009 10:35:01
Ice Cube will star in Ride Along, an action comedy for New Line. Production on the project is expected to begin in the summer.
Cube - whose real name is O'Shea Jackson- will produce and will also do a quick re-write of the script, which has gone through two re-writes already, while New Line begins it search for a director and co-star. The former hardcore rapper will play a cop who has a soft spot for his sister. When he finds out that his beloved sibling is engaged to a white psychiatrist, he goes ballistic and embarks on a course to destroy the relationship, with one of his ploys being inviting his future brother-in-law to accompany him on a ride-along for his job.
