Charlie Day and Ice Cube Set For FIST FIGHT

Charlie Day (‘Pacific Rim,’ ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ ‘Horrible Bosses’) and Ice Cube (‘Ride Along,’ ’21 Jump Street,’ ’Barbershop’) are reportedly in early talks to co-star in the comedy project ‘Fist Fight.’

Per Deadline, the Van Robichaux and Evan Susser-scripted film would see Day playing a mild-mannered English teacher who is put to the test when a colleague (played by Cube) who thinks he is trying to get him fired challenges him to a fist fight after school.

Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps, Billy Rosenberg and Max Greenfield are producing, with Dan Cohen overseeing development. A September start date is on the cards.
