Charlie Day & Ice Cube may get into a Fist Fight for New Line

Deadline is reporting that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Charlie Day and Ice Cube are in early talks with New Line to star in a comedy titled FIST FIGHT. Producers Shawn Levy, Billy Rosenberg and Max Greenfield are currently searching for a director for the project, and they are looking to start production in September.

Van Robichaux and Evan Susser wrote the FIST FIGHT script, and Deadline describes the tone of the film as a grown-up version of the 1987 comedy THREE O'CLOCK HIGH, with Day playing a "mild-mannered English teacher who is put to the test when a colleague (Ice Cube) who thinks he is trying to get him fired challenges him to a fist fight after school."

Yes, FIST FIGHT sounds a lot like the critically-panned 2001 Tim Allen comedy JOE SOMEBODY, but I'm still interested in seeing Charlie Day throwing down with Ice Cube.

Charlie Day can be seen next in the VACATION reboot on July 29, 2015, and the Ice Cube-produced N.W.A. biopic STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON will hit theaters on August 14, 2015.

Love Day but seriously can you get more stereotypical!? White (English) teacher goes up against Black (Physical Ed) teacher, and the black dude starts the fight. Yah that's going to go over bit time. Maybe the white campus security guard can shoot Ice when he sees him moving menacingly towards Day.

Has potential...

If Ice Cube plays his signature sort of the ex con or gangbanger turned teacher or even just a normal teacher from the "hood" playing up against a meek and timid Charlie Day's English teacher this could be great. If done right it could be pretty hilarious. Then towards the end they find out it was the principal or history teacher setting them up, pitting them against each other all along and they team up in a Horrible Bosses sort of way to get him back. It really just falls on good writing and

It really just falls on good writing and good direction to not just be another Kevin Hart-esque throwaway comedy.

I want more comedy films with Charlie Day. Forget Ice Cube, he's not funny.
I do find it funny that coming soon is a bio-pic on N.W.A. produced by Ice Cube and about Ice Cube. Who does that? Also, I don't see why Ice Cube doesn't just play himself in the bio-pic, he does in everything else he's in. SNAP!

Ice Cube and his always pissed off face can go screw themselves. I wish Charlie was starring with someone else.
