Jason Mantzoukas has signed on to rewrite the action-comedy feature Ride Along, starring Ice Cube. The writer has also set up a comedy project at Fox.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Fox project, from 20th TV and Chernin Entertainment, takes place in a hospital and centers on a female doctor who is unraveling at the seams.
Ride Along, from New Line and Cube Vision, will star Cube as a rogue cop who tries to break off his sister's engagement to an upper-crust white psychiatrist by inviting his future brother-in-law on a ride-along.
The project, penned by Greg Coolidge, has gone through a couple of rewrites.
No production date was announced.
