Ice Cube has landed the lead role in a new Hollywood adaptation of A Christmas Carol.
The gangster rapper-turned-movie actor will play a wealthy real estate mogul – surely the ultimate modern villain – in a contemporary retelling of the story. We’ve got our fingers crossed for Nayvadius to play ghosts of Christmas Future.
Humbug is expected to arrive in Christmas 2017, reports Deadline. That’s about all there is to go on for now, other than the fact Cube is set to earn an eight-figure salary for the job.
