This is the complete opposite of humbug!
A Christmas Carol may be one of the most recreated stories in film and TV, but the latest installment may just put all of the others to shame.
That’s because Ice Cube has just been cast as the lead in the upcoming movie Humbug!
The 46-year-old rapper will play Ebenezer Scrooge in Universal‘s modern revamp of the Charles Dickens classic… and we cannot wait to seem him get his grump on!
We don’t know too much about the film yet, aside from the fact that it’s being directed by Ride Along‘s Tim Story, but you can probably expect to see Humbug in theaters around Christmas 2017!
Hopefully they just go for it and cast the rest of N.W.A. as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future! LOLz!!!
