Ice Cube Aims to Move Beyond Comedy

After filming three comedies in a row, Ice Cube hopes his latest flick, “All About the Benjamins,” is his last one for a while. “I want to do more drama… but I’m not pushing it. It’s all about the projects as they come along, how good they are, the timing.”

The rapper-actor is teamed up with Mike Epps again in both the Benjamins movie and the upcoming “Friday After Next,” which is scheduled to open around Christmas.

Ice Cube says “Benjamins” will cross social barriers because “it’s a good movie, no matter what color you are, no matter what age you are.”

Epps replaced Chris Tucker, who left after the first “Friday” movie. Ice Cube says he and Epps got along the minute they started working together because of the laid-back atmosphere.

“I try to create an atmosphere of no pressure on my sets. I think if you make everybody comfortable, you get the best work. I’m not in this to get awards, I’m in this to make great movies.”
