Ice Cube’s shingle is circling a bigscreen adaptation of the graphic novel “10” at Dimension as a starring vehicle for the thesp.
Gustin Nash and Jesse Cale adapted the graphic novel by Shannon Eric Denton and Keith Giffen. Story revolves around a guy who gets what appears to be junk mail informing him he’s in a competition with nine others and that whoever gets out alive wins. He throws away the letter, but then a man toting an ax shows up at the door.
Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez of CubeVision are negotiating to produce along with David Alpert and Rick Jacobs of Circle of Confusion. The Weinstein Co. declined comment.
Thesp is filming “First Sunday” for Screen Gems. His shingle, based at Dimension, has several projects in the works, including a bigscreen adaptation of “Welcome Back, Kotter” and “Tough Love.”
