Ice Cube is in negotiations to join the cast of Columbia Pictures' contemporary treatment of 21 Jump Street.
Cube would play Captain Dickson, the leader of two undercover cops working in high schools and colleges (portrayed by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum). 21 Jump Street is based on the popular 1980s TV that starred Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson Peete.
The film is scheduled to start production in late April. [Variety]
