The star's latest movie role will reportedly see him take a car chase-obsessed business executive hostage...

Legendary rapper ICE CUBE is reported to be lining up another film role – this time as a prison escapee.

Over the last 10 years Cube has made a name for himself in acting, appearing in a number of films including ‘Boyz In The Hood’, and in 1999, ‘Three Kings’ alongside George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg.

Now, according to the Billboard in the US, Cube is set to make an appearance alongside Johnny Knoxville in ‘Big Ticket’.

The film is said to be an action movie with Cube playing the part of a prison escapee who takes a business executive hostage – himself obsessed with car chases.

Production on the project is due to start at the end of the year.
