Ice Cube has reportedly exited Sony’s forthcoming comedy, Oh Hell No, because he declined to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The legendary rapper turned actor was set to co-star alongside Jack Black in the film that was slated to begin shooting this winter in Hawaii.

The film’s director, Kitao Sakurai, made the request that cast on the project would need to be vaccinated.

That’s when Ice Cube reportedly pulled out of the film leaving a $9 million payday on the table.

Sony is now searching to find a replacement for Cube.
