Ice Cube to Star in New Film

Ice Cube is getting in the Christmas spirit…well, sorta.

The creative entrepreneur will star as Ebenezer Scrooge in a revamped version of A Christmas Carol directed by Tim Story.

Tim’s modernized version of the Christmas classic will upgrade with Cube as a wealthy real estate mogul shown a path of redemption by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.

In a four-studio bid, Universal Pictures won the battle to acquire the modern retelling of the Charles Dickens’ holiday favorite.

Production dates have yet to be released.
