Okay, feeling a bit lazy this week folks, so I'm gonna put a buncha stuff in this one post while I have the energy....
Let's start off with the Negro that is partially responsible for this week's sleepiness with Hollywood:
Ice Cube continues to build on his movie biz dynasty, recently inking a deal with Dimension Films to make "Janky Promoters", Cube's first script since the last installment of his Friday series.
According to Daily Variety, Ice Cube will write and act in the Janky Promoters, which he's also producing alongside Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.
Janky Promoters will star Cube and another actor as unprepared music promoters working to book a big-name hip-hop artist at a California venue where everything seems to go wrong.
A director will also soon be attached to the project and with casting expected to begin immediately, Dimension head Bob Weinstein is hoping to cast a marquee level rapper to star in the film.
"This feels a lot like Uptown Saturday Night to me, a caper film where you have these music promoters who are slightly shady but are good enough guys that you root for them," Weinstein told Daily Variety. "This is going to be R-rated, and it appeals right to the core of Cube's audience."
Weinstein also shared details about Cube's deal adding, "He's producing the movie, sharing in the funding, so it's more complicated than previous deals we've made with Cube. He's a brand, like Tyler Perry, and that's the direction he's headed in. We're happy to assist him in that because we believe in him."
From IW: Ummm, excuse me. Mr. Weinstein--can I talk to you for a second? Let's see here, how can I put this...WTF?!
I had the great fortune of stumbling upon your website tonight. I want to acknowledge you for your commitment to keeping it current and real. Like you (smile) I have been invisible over the years,transforming my life and truly finding my gift so that I may be a gift to others. Over the last six years, I've earned my degree in Ontology and I've been leading transformational seminars for a global organization. In addition, I've recently completed my first book "Ex-Free", I'm earning my PhD in Psychology and my talk show is scheduled to begin airing in six months, "Troy Talk." I am forever grateful to anyone who cares enough to wonder where I went. I went to the mountain top after ruffling through the valleys but I'm back and again, thank you for wondering. I will bookmark your site and check you out often. Keep on keeping up!
