It Was A Good Day – Ice Cube And Kevin Hart Partner Up In RIDE ALONG
Cube looks to continue on the laugh track after strong showing in 21 JUMP STREET.
I bailed on Ice Cube the family man. I’ve got nothing against artists evolving and branching out into different genres, but the Cube moved so seamlessly from hip-hop into drama, that the next step into family fare seemed much more jarring. Coming off of Friday, which seems to be aging very well, seeing Cube chase the kids around in Are We There Yet? was somewhat heartbreaking, especially after displaying what appeared to be some natural comedic chops.
I don’t need Ice Cube working clean, and while his role in 21 Jump Street was small and a hair stilted, I felt like he got one of the biggest laughs in the flick when he questioned Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum about whether or not they were throwing a party.
I’m digging the idea for Ride Along, which based on the description provided by Deadline, appears to be something of a comedic take on Training Day. Cube will play the bad cop taking future brother-in-law and elemetary school teacher Kevin Hart along for a day on the job. I don’t know if it can be as good as the Dave Chappelle-Wayne Brady take on essentially the same gag, or if it can sustain for ninety minutes, but I’m damn tickled to find out.
The project has been limping slowly along over at New Line Cinema for years before finally being put into turnaround. Now Universal has bought up the project for an October start date. According to the source article, Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay will be rewriting the script before shooting begins.
Hopefully, Ride Along will be rounding the corner into theaters about a year from now. As always, you can count on the Complex to keep you up to the minute with all of the pertinent information.
