Ice Cube Requires Some Tough Love

Dimension Films has picked up comedy script “Tough Love” from writers Matt Allen and Caleb Wilson, with Ice Cube attached to star and Thomas Carter (“Coach Carter”) to direct says The Hollywood Reporter.

Inspired by the life of former New England Patriots defensive back Tebucky Jones, the story centers on a tough-as-nails NFL player who realizes that his kids have become spoiled brats.

In an effort to toughen them up, he forces them to spend their summer in the mean streets of Oakland, Calif., where he grew up. Along the way, he realizes that he also might have some things to learn.
