Disney Picks Up Ice Cube’s Chrome and Paint

ON

Walt Disney Pictures has picked up Chrome and Paint, to be directed and produced by Ice Cube, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is described as a “gritty car culture project” and gets its name from a song on Cube’s 2006 album “Laugh Now, Cry Later.”

Cube will produce with his CubeVision partner Matt Alvarez and is also co-writing the script with Eva Vives (Raising Victor Vargas).

The trade says the project, set in South Central LA, was envisioned as a hardcore R-rated movie, but it will be toned down now that the film is at Disney.
