Ice Cube vs. Charlie Day in the Fist Fight trailer and poster!
New Line has released the Fist Fight trailer and poster, which you can both check out below! Fist Fight opens in theaters on February 17, 2017.
Ice Cube and Charlie Day headline the Fist Fight, a comedy directed by Richie Keen from a script by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux. The story follows Charlie Day’s character, a meek teacher, as he is challenged to a fist fight by his much tougher colleague, played by Ice Cube. Christina Hendricks will play a school drama teacher, who has a romantic connection to the teacher played by Ice Cube.
“The truth of the matter is at this public high school on a very chaotic day, neither of their philosophies are working,” Keen told USA Today. “And this fight becomes a bigger metaphor for the system and things needing to change.”
The Fist Fight movie is also set to mark the big screen return of actor/comedian Tracy Morgan. Hospitalized after a tragic traffic accident on the New Jersey Turnpike in 2014, Morgan is finally beginning to return to work. He will play a coach at the school.
Fist Fight is being produced by Shawn Levy, Max Greenfield and John Rickard and the cast also includes Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) and Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street) as the school’s principal and guidance counselor, respectively.
