Ice Cube and Charlie Day are in talks to team for the comedy “Fist Fight” at New Line Cinema.
Day plays a mild-mannered English teacher who is put to the test when a colleague (Ice Cube) who thinks he is trying to get him fired challenges him to a fist fight after school. The tone is said to be in line with 1980s cult hit “Three O’Clock High”.
Van Robichaux and Evan Susser penned the script while Shawn Levy, Billy Rosenberg and Max Greenfield will produce. A director is currently being sought and filming aims to begin in September.
