Ice Cube to work on ‘Comeback’

Dimension Films has set a Nov. 26 start date for “Comeback,” an inspirational sports drama that Ice Cube will topline and produce. Fred Durst is negotiating to direct. Project is based on a true story, and Cube will play a former high school football star who takes his niece under his wing as she becomes the first female quarterback in Pop Warner football history. The 11-year-old QB, Jasmine Plummer, led her team to the Pop Warner tournament, and became the first female to play in the tournament’s 56-year history. Nick Santora wrote the script, with Doug Atchison (“Akeelah and the Bee”) doing a rewrite. Santora read about the girl’s tourney win, corralled the rights to her story and took his script to Dimension. Santora is producing with Cube and his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.
