Ice Cube Writes & Directs Janky

Ice Cube has penned and will both star in and produce the comedy “Janky Promoters” for Dimension Films says Variety.

“Janky Promoters” sets Cube and another actor as music promoters who get the chance to book a top-tier hip-hop artist into a midsized California venue. The pair are ill equipped for such a task and everything goes wrong.

The project is the first that Cube has written since the final installment of his “Friday” series. He will partner with Dimension on the proceeds after recoupment on a budget likely to be about $10 million.

A director is expected to be named soon, with casting to begin immediately. Shooting will begin early Summer, depending upon Cube’s promotion schedule for “The Long Shots” and the potential SAG strike.
