Christina Hendricks joins Ice Cube and Charlie Day for a Fist Fight
Richie Keen's upcoming comedy FIST FIGHT may wind up as an all-out brawl at the rate they're adding new cast members. The comedy, which already stars Ice Cube and Charlie Day as two teachers who work in a broken-down school system and wind up in an epic fist fight, is currently in negotiations with Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) to join its cast.
Per THR, Hendricks would play "an intense drama teacher with the hots for Ice Cube’s character." In addition to Ice Cube and Charlie Day, FIST FIGHT also counts Jullian Bell (Workaholics) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) amongst its cast as the school's principal and guidance counselor respectively. FIST FIGHT will also serve as Tracy Morgan's return to the screen, fourteen months after the tragic accident which claimed the life of his friend James McNair and left Morgan with severe injuries; Morgan will play the school's gym teacher.
FIST FIGHT, which has been penned by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux, will begin shooting this October in Atlanta.
