Ice Cube has ticket to ‘Ride’

Actor set for New Line action comedy

Ice Cube has set as his next star vehicle “Ride Along,” an action comedy that New Line Cinema will put into production this summer.

Cube has come aboard with his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez to produce, and he will do a quick rewrite while New Line sets a director and co-star.

Cube will play a rogue cop with a soft spot for his sister. When she reveals she’s engaged to an upper-crust white psychiatrist, the cop sets out to destroy the relationship by inviting his future brother-in-law on a ride-along.

Chris Bender and JC Spink will be executive producers, and Larry Brezner also will be involved in a producing capacity. Greg Coolidge wrote the script, and Steve Faber and Bob Fisher did a rewrite.

“Ride Along” will be Cube’s first film for New Line since 2002’s “Friday After Next,” which he produced with Alvarez.

The deal comes as Cube and Alvarez search for a distributor for his latest starring effort, “Janky Promoters.” The film, which was independently financed by Comerica, was originally set for distribution at the Weinstein Co. That deal went by the wayside recently, and distributor screenings began late last week. ENDS
