I hope Lightning McQueen wants some spinning rims and hydraulic suspension.

Disney is in talks with Ice Cube to produce and distribute Chrome and Paint, a drama about the South Central Los Angeles custom car scene. Ice Cube wrote and will direct the R-rated project, which is being compared to Boyz N’ The Hood. Yup, there can be no doubt that Chrome and Paint would fit Disney’s foot like a magical, sparkly glass slipper… after a few modifications.

Apparently, Disney wants the film to be PG-13, a rewrite that Mr. Cube is willing to make. Then Disney’s probably gonna want that taken down to PG, and does it all have to take place in LA? With all the crime people? What if part of the film took place on a family road trip? Finally, a Disney executive will ask Ice Cube if he could turn it into College Road Trip 2. After all, there’s no business like the College Road Trip 2 making business.

Meanwhile, Cube is set to star in 21 Jump Street with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. (Deadline)

UPDATE: Disney picked up Chrome and Paint. So from now on, Cube will hug tha police. (Hollywood Reporter)

Ice Cube May Help Tha Police In ’21 Jump Street’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ice-cube-may-help-tha-police-in-21-jump-street/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ice-cube-may-help-tha-police-in-21-jump-street/#comments Wed, 16 Feb 2011 00:45:19 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=27274 My Man 'Friday' has more projects in the pipeline. He's in talks to star in '21 Jump Street' and he's driving around town with his car-related directing vehicle.

Like Snoop Dogg, there are apparently two Ice Cubes. There’s the family friendly Ice Cube behind the sitcom “Are We There Yet” and movies like The Longshots. That’s the Ice Cube I’d like to keep in the freezer forever. Then there’s the N.W.A. veteran gangsta rapper who makes horrible movies like Lottery Ticket, but that’s the real Ice Cube, as far as I’m concerned. Well, looks like my man Friday has more projects in the pipeline.

Mr. Cube is in talks to be part of 21 Jump Street, based on the old Johnny Depp show that made him a dreamy teen idol, much to his emo-embarrassment. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) want him to play the precinct captain, cast alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. I kinda wish they’d ask him to play one of the undercove high school officers, cause he’s 41 and that would be very, very ridiculous.

In addition, Ice Cube is shopping around a movie he wrote, and would like to direct / star in. Will he also run craft services on Chrome and Paint, a gritty drama about South LA’s custom car culture? Probably not, but it’d be funny if Ice Cube didn’t trust anyone else to make potato salad, so he made it himself. Who would stop him? Hell, I wouldn’t even mess with the family friendly Ice Cube. (Deadline)
