Appears to be more inclined towards generating laughs rather than going for some thrilling actions onscreen for now, Ice Cube has signed on to topline an urban-themed comedy entitled "First Sunday", a joint production of his Cube Vision and Screen Gems.
A feature directorial debut of playwright David E. Talbert, the project finds Cube as one of two men who bungle an attempt to heist money from a church. Beyond their expectation, the pair winds up taking hostage on its parishioners to then be guided by those churchgoers to see error in their ways.
Shooting is slated to begin May 14 this year in Los Angeles and Baltimore to meet a release date during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Apart from his helming duties, Talbert is also attached to pen the script and produce alongside Cube, Matt Alvarez, David McIlvain, and Julie Yorn.
