Ice Cube Leans Away From Comedy With New Dramatic Project

We just discovered that rapper, director and actor Ice Cube, who just premiered his new documentary Straight Outta L.A. at the Tribeca Film Festival-and created a lot of buzz about his project- is returning to his early roots in film with a drama that's straight out of the headlines in L.A.

We hear Cube will star with actors Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster in a new film titled Rampart, the new dramatic film about police corruption.

We hear that Cube will play a homicide detective sent to investigate a dirty cop (Harrelson) in a drama that is squarely based on the scandal involving crooked Los Angeles cops in the 1990s.

As we reported earlier, Cube just recently produced the new comedy film titled Lottery Ticket that also stars Bow Wow, Brandon T. Jackson, Mike Epps and many more, and opens August 20th. Cube is also producing the new sitcom titled Are We There Yet?, a series that bows on TBS June 2nd.

If the movie spinoff reaches a certain ratings threshold over the first 10 episodes, TBS will pick up another 90 episodes.
