Three Join Ice Cube’s Sunday


Katt Williams, Tracy Morgan and Malinda Williams have joined Ice Cube in First Sunday, a Screen Gems comedy about two petty thieves who try to rip off a church, reports Variety.

Playwright David E. Talbert wrote the script and will make his helming debut with the pic, which begins shooting today. The joint production of Cube Vision and the Firm is scheduled for a release on Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend next year — the same frame Screen Gems debuted Stomp the Yard this year.

Cube Vision’s Matt Alvarez is producing, along with David McIlvain, Julie Yorn and Talbert. Ronald G. Muhammad, Tim Story and Stacy Cramer executive produce.

The cast also includes Regina Hall, Chi McBride and Loretta Devine.
