Ice Cube to Star in First Sunday

Ice Cube has signed on to star in and co-produce a film called First Sunday, a film about two men who try to rob a church, but instead end up being shown the error of their ways by the parishioners they take hostage. Playwright David E. Talbert, who has been writing gospel-themed plays for 15 years, will make his directorial debut on the project. First Sunday will begin filming on May 14 in Los Angeles and Baltimore. The film is scheduled to hit theaters around the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, according to Variety. In related news, Cube recently wrapped filming on Are We Done Yet?, the sequel to the 2005 comedy Are We There Yet. The former N.W.A front man is also developing a remake of Welcome Back Kotter with the Weinstein Company.

    Iam die hard fan of Cubes but honeslty thats some bull!What he needs to do is make another Friday except now he could call it Saturday. Get Chris Tucker&Mike Epps together on it and thats a box office hit.

  • wacko G

    who gives a fuck what kind of movie the man makes? yes friday was good,but makeing another one will kill it.the next friday and then the one after that were both gay and ruined it…theres nothing wrong with religon,even some of the biggest killer and gangsters are real religous,so dont fucking hate on something you dont under stand…besides if he did a remake of anything,i think boys in the hood woulda been a good one if they hadnt said he was murdered at the end of the first one….
