Ice Cube Being 'Janky' Promoter

The star of dramedy 'First Sunday' will be starring and co-producing a film based on the script he has written called 'Janky Promoters'.

Hip-hop artist/actor Ice Cube reportedly will bring his first written script following his "Friday" series to the big screen. According to Variety, the 38-year-old entertainer has been set to star as well as co-produce "Janky Promoters" for Dimension Films.

In the film, the star of the "Barbershop" series will be portraying an ill-equipped music promoter who gets once in a lifetime chance to book an A-list hip-hop artist into a midsized California venue. Aside from showing off her acting skills, Cube will also produce the film alongside his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.

Commenting on Cube's role in the movie, Dimension's owner Bob Weinstein said, "He's producing the movie, sharing in the funding, so it's more complicated than previous deals we've made with Cube. He's a brand, like Tyler Perry, and that's the direction he's headed in." The movie executive further added, "We're happy to assist him in that because we believe in him."

On the film itself, Variety described that "Janky" has the tone of Cube's previous dramedy films, including "First Sunday". Weinstein supported that by stating, "This is going to be R-rated, and it appeals right to the core of Cube's audience." Further, it has been said that the studio is planning to tap a superstar rapper to star as himself in the film.
