Ice Cube has been tapped to star in the 20th Century Fox comedy Vacation Friends.
According to Deadline, the film follows a straight-laced couple returning from a vacation in Mexico, but they can’t get rid of the wild couple they met on their trip, who unexpectedly appear long after the vacation is over. Cube stars as the “tightly-wound lawyer who is in love with Emily, his dedicated girlfriend who seems so innocent to her parents but has a wild streak that she lets loose while on vacation in Mexico before returning home. He then tries to bring things back to normal.”
The project, which was formerly intended for Chris Pratt and wife Anna Faris, will see Cube reuniting with Are We Done Yet? producer Todd Garner. It’s not known when the film will hit be released, but Cube’s got a slew of acting projects in the works, including Barbershop 3 and Ride Along 2, hitting theaters January 15. The rapper will also play Scrooge in Humbug, a modern film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic story A Christmas Carol.
