Ice Cube and his Three Kings director David O. Russell are in talks with New Line/Warner Bros. to reteam for a new project, reports Deadline.
The site says that Cube “will play a plainclothes detective who’s quick on the trigger in an R-rated raw drama that’s thematically a throwback to those 70s revenge films like the Harry Callahan movies that starred Clint Eastwood.”
Russell will produce with Cube and his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.
Cube is currently filming the Oren Moverman-directed crime drama Rampart. Russell’s The Fighter will be released in December and he just signed to write and direct video game adaptation Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune at Sony.
