*Ice Cube is denying reports that he and his son O’Shea Jackson Jr. are attached to star in “April 29, 1992,” an upcoming film about the Los Angeles riots.
Following an item about their involvement from the Hollywood Reporter, Cube’s camp released a statement asserting that he and his son are not formally attached to the project.
“Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson Jr. have no plans to commit to this project at this time. Any speculations or rumors that suggest that they are confirmed are simply untrue,” the statement read.
The father-son duo worked together as producer and actor on the N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” which is nearing $100 million at the box office and receiving critical praise.
Cube can be seen next in the sequel to “Ride Along” with Kevin Hart, which hits theaters in January.
