Ice Cube and David O. Russell to Develop new Dirty Harry type Film Franchise

Ice Cube and director David O. Russell (Three Kings) are re-teaming to develop a new potential film franchise that will be a throwback to the old school 1970's Dirty Harry type films that Clint Eastwood made. 

The film will be a rated 'R' drama in which "Cube will play a plainclothes detective who's quick on the trigger." Lets face it... Cube is no Dirty Harry. There's nothing threatening about him at all. He's one of those actors that I can't take seriously in the films that he stars in, especially when he's trying to be serious. 

I think Russell is a talented and solid director though, so I'm interested in seeing how this film will turn out.

What do you all think?
