While the world waits with bated breath to hear if he’ll be starring as B.A. Baracus in John Singleton‘s The A-Team, Ice Cube is keeping himself busy with other projects.

Cube’s latest project, per Variety, is a comedy titled Janky Promoters. Billed as Cube’s first script since the last Friday film, Janky has attracted interest from Dimension Films, where he’s inked a partnership deal giving him a chunk of the profits. From the article:

“Janky Promoters” sets Cube and another actor as music promoters who get the chance to book a top-tier hip-hop artist into a midsized California venue. The pair are ill equipped for such a task and everything goes wrong.

The report also includes a number of quotes from Dimension chief and noted “urban niche” enthusiast Bob Weinstein, who compares the script to Uptown Saturday Night, promises an R rating, and hails Cube as a mogul in the making:

He’s producing the movie, sharing in the funding, so it’s more complicated than previous deals we’ve made with Cube. He’s a brand, like Tyler Perry, and that’s the direction he’s headed in. We’re happy to assist him in that because we believe in him.

Janky Promoters‘ production schedule will be assembled around Cube’s promotional duties for another Dimension film, the Fred Durst-directed The Long Shots.
