Comedian Tracy Morgan is set to return to the big screen with word that he is in talks to join Ice Cube and Charlie Day in the school-themed comedy “Fist Fight” at New Line.
Evan Susser and Van Robichaux’s script follows two teachers (Cube and Day) who work in a broken-down school system and wind up in an epic fist fight.
If the deal happens, Morgan will play the school’s coach. Jillian Bell and Dean Norris also star in the Richie Keen-directed film.
Morgan was sidelined by a serious car accident in June 2014 and made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards on Sunday. ‘Fist’ would be his first on screen role since the accident.
