Ice Cube to Make ‘Comeback’ With Fred Durst

Just in time for the ’07-’08 NFL and college football frenzy, Variety is reporting that Dimension Films will start production on ‘Comeback,’ a sports drama about the first-ever female quarterback in Pop Warner (read: little league) football history.

Ice Cube will produce and star in the film, which former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is “in negotiations to direct.” Durst made his directorial debut with the indie film ‘The Education of Charlie Banks,’ which is due out this year. The controversial rock-rapper was also hired to direct the 2005 Heath Ledger skater movie ‘Lords of Dogtown,’ but backed out of the project for reasons unknown.

Ice Cube — a.k.a. O’Shea Jackson — will play a former high school football star and uncle to Jasmine Plummer, the 11-year-old girl who lead her team to the Pop Warner tournament.From ‘Boyz ‘n the Hood’ to ‘Higher Learning’ and the ‘Friday,’ ‘Barbershop’ and ‘Are We There Yet’ franchises, Ice Cube has made quite a name for himself in Hollywood. His involvement with ‘Comeback’ comes on the heels of announcing his involvement in the film adaptation of the Shannon Eric Denton and Keith Giffen graphic novel ’10’ last week.
