Ice Cube, David O. Russell Are Dicks

Ice Cube and his “Three Kings” director David O. Russell are re-teaming for a potential franchise in which Ice Cube would play a hot-headed detective reports Deadline.

The R-rated drama, said to be a throwback to 70’s films like “Dirty Harry”, would have Cube as a plainclothes detective who is quick on the trigger.

Russell may co-write the script, but someone else will be hired shortly to pen the early drafts. New Line will distribute the project.
