Dimension Films has set a November 26 start date for Comeback, an inspirational sports drama that Ice Cube will star in and produce. Fred Durst will direct.
The film is based on a true story, and Cube will play a former high school football star who takes his niece under his wing as she becomes the first female quarterback in Pop Warner football history. The 11-year old QB, Jasmine Plummer, led her team to the Pop Warner tournament, and became the first female to play in the tournament’s 56-year history.
The script was written by Nick Santora, and Doug Atchison (Akeelah and the Bee) is doing a rewrite. Santora is producing with Cube and his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.
