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.
