Hollyweird Ballin’: Ice Cube Signs Up For Second Movie-Cop Role

- By Bossip Staff

Just as his latest movie “Rampart” started production this week, Ice Cube signed up for his second cop movie this week. And this one might be a series.

Following his turn in the LAPD drama, Cube is going to work with a new partner to develop a Dirty Harry-style character and a couple of stories behind him.

Ice Cube and his Three Kings director David O Russell are in talks with New Line to re-team to create a potential franchise. Cube will play a plainclothes detective who’s quick on the trigger in an R-rated raw drama that’s thematically a throwback to those 70s revenge films like the Harry Callahan movies that starred Clint Eastwood. The deals are underway and the idea was hatched by Russell and New Line chief Toby Emmerich, and they brought it to Cube. Russell will produce with Cube and his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez. Jeff Kwatinetz manages Cube. They are still working out the beats of the story, but Russell and Cube were eager to work together again, in another edgy, R-rated adult drama that is an homage to those 70s pictures like Dirty Harry and Death Wish. While Cube is most readily identified with Los Angeles, the tough cop’s locale hasn’t yet been determined.

Get them checks, Oshea! Is there an unwritten rule somewhere that all rapper-turned-actors have to play a cop at some poin in their career though?

    Ice Cube is what you call a hood success story from ashy to the big time. Much props to him.

    They should fly the good year blimp through the hood announcing Cube’s legal hustle moves to those young niccas showing them there are better ways outside of banging and slanging.

    Cube is a prime example of what it is to grow as an artist and as a man. I’m so glad he’s not a 40 something year old rapper still talking about selling drugs.
