New Gig Whispers: Ice Cube to Star & Produce “Eye For An Eye”
Ice Cube is set to star and executive produce Eye For An Eye, a drama series project is in development to appear on FX. The project will of course come from Ice Cube’s company Cube Vision and will also include another company. The idea was brain child of Jeff Kwatinetz’s Prospect Park. Check out the premiss of the series:
Eye For An Eye centers on a complex man, played by Ice Cube, who is a veteran paramedic. After too many years of leaving the scenes of violent crimes with a victim struggling to live in the back of his ambulance, he snaps and starts going “Eye For An Eye.” When his thirst for revenge proves addictive, his personal life spirals out of control as he tries to reconcile it with his newfound life as a vigilante.
Cube & Ice Cube Vision, and his partner Matt Alvarez; are executive producing with Jeff Kwatinetz, and Prospect Park’s TV partner Josh Barry. They’re currently looking for a writer for the project. You may recall that Ice will also star in Rampart and 21 Jump Street. I’m not sure what happened with “Chrome.” Ice Cube is definitely in mogul mode. I should’ve called this Mogul Whispers. Anywhoz, I love to see growth in black mogul movement.
