Ice Cube, recently seen in The Star’s Assistant, will star in an as-yet-untitled sci-fi film produced by Timur Bekmambetov for Universal.

It’s been 25 years since Ice Cube, famous rapper of BLACK (whose story was told in Straight Outta Compton), made his film debut with The university of hate of the late John Singleton. Since then, his film career has flanked and almost supplanted his musical one. We recently saw it in The star’s assistant, and is already engaged in other projects, to which is now added a science fiction film as yet untitled, directed by Rich Lee based on a screenplay by Kenneth Golde and produced by Timur Bekmambetov for the Universal.

Little is known about the story, but the film is presented as rooted in reality, in the vein of District 9, focused on privacy issues in a global surveillance world.

La Universal has given immediately the green light for production, which will begin shooting next month. Bekmambetov, a Kazakh-born director passionate and competent in the development of new techniques, has a 5-film deal with Universal. It was that which sparked the Studio’s interest in this film in particular the presentation made by the director of the possibility to shoot the film economically without losing quality and in total safety, thanks to development of a new technology which allows the cast and crew of work separately remotely.

There is another movie he’s involved in Ice Cube, instead, the shooting of which was halted by the pandemic. This is the sports biopic Flint Strong, which is expected to return to production soon.
