Fred Durst to direct Ice Cube in inspirational sports drama

    Limp Bizkit frontman and nookie aficionado Fred Durst is in negotiations with producers to direct a film starring Ice Cube based on an inspirational true story. No seriously, I’m not kidding, Fred Durst is going to direct a movie starring Ice Cube! The film is going to be based on a poor Illinois town and its unlikely star quarterback, 11-year-old Jasmine Plummer. She leads her local Pop Warner football team, the Harvey Colts, to the Pop Warner Super Bowl and inspires the town to reclaim its former glory, reconnect with estranged relatives, kick its debilitating prescription pill habit, etc.
    [more:]Says Durst of the film: “The lead was an 11-year-old African-American girl … It was a tough sell.” Really? Tougher than selling yourself as the director? OK, Durst has directed a few of his and other bands’ music videos as well as a feature that has made a few festival rounds called “The Education of Charlie Banks” (anyone seen it?). Could he become the Rob Zombie of overwrought drama?
