Cube Picks Money Over Substance

Rapper-turned-actor ICE CUBE gave up his dreams of arthouse films to secure bigger pay cheques in blockbuster movies. The THREE KINGS star freely admits he's been driven by greed, but hopes to return to more interesting roles once he's secured his place in Hollywood. He says, "I'm definitely looking into that (arthouse) in the future because that's really where you can do the films you want. "We (Cube Vision Productions) didn't want to do those until we established ourselves. We didn't want it to look like we only make arthouse movies because then it's hard to get into doing big features. "We have always wanted to do both, so we chose the money-making movies first - we'll go for the more heartfelt stories in the next three or four years."
