Ice Cube exits ‘Oh Hell No’ Movie Over Vaccine. He has decided that he will not be a part of the movie and be forced to be vaccinated. On Friday, the news of his departure spread widely that producers had requested that he be vaccinated, but he declined the request, which means he’s foregoing the bag he would have secured for his role.
The movie is a comedy being directed by Kitao Sakurai (director for Netflix’s “Bad Trip” and produced by Matt Tolmach and Jack Black, would have also seen Ice Cube co-starring with Jack Black.
The movie cast was previously announced with Ice Cube and Black in June 2020, but it seems that with vaccine mandates sweeping the nation, Sony Entertainment is also requesting its employees and those working on movies to also be vaccinated. The film to be distributed by Sony was also set to be shot during the winter period in Hawaii and all members of the cast were requested to be vaccinated.
Sony and both directors have not commented on Ice Cube’s exit from the movie and a possible replacement for the role. Ice Cube was said to be paid nine (9) million dollars for his role in the movie.
