Ice Cube and Fred Durst Collaborate on Sports Drama

ice-cube-lo.jpgIce Cube and Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst are expected to team up for an inspirational sports drama called Comeback. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film tells the story of a small Illinois town that rallies behind the 11-year-old female quarterback of the local Pop Warner football team. Comeback is based on the actual experiences of Jasmine Plummer, the first female player in the Pop Warner league’s history. Ice Cube will play the girl’s uncle, a former high-school football player who helps the team make it to the Pop Warner Super Bowl. Durst is currently in negotiations to direct. Nick Santora, a writer and executive producer of the TV series Prison Break, read an article about Plummer five years ago and ended up buying the rights to her story. After unsuccessfully shopping the idea for years, he eventually caught up with Ice Cube, who in turn brought the project to Dimension Films.

Ice Cube has worked with other people outside of Hip Hop e.g. Fuck Dying with Korn and Gone on the Family Values Tour with Limp Bizkit and Korn!! Oh and Fred Durst aint Emo, he New Metal (not that im a fan of him, jus hate ignorant pricks like hulk)

    FRED DURST IS LIKE A JA RULE OF ROCK SCENE. NO TALENT, NO CHARISMA, NO CAREER, NO NOTHING. WALKING CLOWN THAT NOBODY GIVES A SHIT.

    CUBE IS LOWERING HIMSELF TOO MUCH HERE.

    Thank you Nate, it’s good to see someone other than me knows how to differentiate horrible music genres. The only good “emo” ever made is older stuff that can mostly be considered melodic hardcore (Lifetime,etc.). Nu metal is worthless garbage and so is Fred Durst.

  • Fred Jones

    You guys dissing Durst are ignorant. Dude just won an award at the Tribeca film festival, and is getting tons of praise on his directorial skills. Say what you want about his music, (*coughsecondrockbandinhistorytosellover1millioncopiesinfirstweekcough*)
    but Durst knows what he’s doing, and you’d better respect him.

  • Purple Hulk
