news, the rapper will soon start production on "The Extractors" and

"Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House," a remake of the 1948 comedy

that starred iconic actor Carey Grant.

“We are going to make

our version so fly that you won't even be able to tell it's a spin off of the

old movie, because that film was made in 1948,” Ice Cube told

“We are in the process of writing it now, we haven't actually started

production because we are trying to get the script right.”
