Ice Cube pulls out of Sony, Jack Black flickes after refusing vaccine

There will be no ice in hell.

Entertainer Ice Cube left the cast of the pending Sony comedy “Oh Hell No” – and walked away from a $ 9 million payday – after rejecting the COVID-19 vaccine shot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ice Cube was to play alongside Jack Black, with whom he collaborated on the project in June. Filmmaker Kitao Sakurai planned to shoot the film this winter in Hawaii, and the producers asked the cast to get jab.

Sony, Ice Cube’s agency and his personal representative, as well as co-producers Black and Matt Tolmach, all declined to comment on the deal.

Ice Cube has not discussed its decision on social media, instead of celebrating The 30th anniversary of his landmark album, “Death Certificate”, which was released on Halloween in 1991.

It is the second production Ice Cube has left in recent months, according to the report, although it is unclear why he left the boxing film “Flint Strong”, where he was to star.

Producers have the option of “implementing mandatory vaccination policies for cast and zone A crews” – where actors and crew work closely – “on a production-by-production basis”, according to an agreement reached in July between studios and actors guilds, states the report, while disputes over vaccination have become an issue in other Hollywood projects.
