*Ice Cube is reportedly saying to New Line “Make my day.”
The rapper and David O. Russell are developing a “Dirty Harry”-esque franchise for New Line, according to Deadline.
”Cube will play a plainclothes detective who’s quick on the trigger in an R-rated throwback to those 70s revenge films like the Harry Callahan movies that starred Clint Eastwood”, reports Deadline.
Russell, who directed Cube in “Three Kings,” developed the idea with New Line chief Toby Emmerich. They then approached Cube with the project.
