After hitting big with this summer’s big surprise hit Straight Outta Compton, Ice Cube and his son have chosen their next project together. They will play father and son in an action-thriller to be released by Lionsgate.
The film is tentatively titled April 29, 1992 and it will be produced by Will Packer (Think Like A Man, Ride Along) who was also the executive producer for Ice Cube and his son, O’shea Jackson Jr’s, first film collaboration Straight Outta Compton. This will be the first time senior and junior will act in a film together.
The movie is about an ex-criminal who is on a mission to save his son when his business is looted by a dangerous group of thugs looking for a big score. It will be set during the L.A riots that followed the Rodney King verdict in Los Angeles.
South African filmmaker Donovan Marsh (Avenged, Spud) will direct the film from a script by Sascha Penn (Power, Survivor's Remorse).
Production is set to start February 2016
