Ice Cube, Fred Durst Making a Movie Together

It's bound to be better than Are We Done Yet?

by | August 23, 2007 | Comments

It’s a story that reads like a sign of the Apocalypse, or perhaps a horrible, long-lost B-side from the Judgment Night soundtrack, but the sad reality is that it’s just another day in Hollywood: Variety is reporting that Ice Cube and Fred Durst are collaborating on a film.

The project, titled Comeback and described in the article as “an inspirational sports drama,” will be based on the true story of Jasmine Plummer, the 11-year-old quarterback who became the first female player in the history of Pop Warner football. (And a good one, too — she led her team to the Pop Warner tournament in 2003.) Mr. Cube will produce and star as Jasmine’s uncle, who was a star on his high school football squad, and helps her learn the game. The script was written by Nick Santora and Doug Atchison.

And how does Fred Durst fit into all this? He’s going to direct, of course. This will be the first major film project for Durst, who made the jump from off-key screaming to movies a couple of years ago, and premiered his directorial debut, The Education of Charlie Banks, at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Production on Comeback is slated to begin November 26.
