Ice Cube to Executive Produce MTV’s ‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ Reboot

‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ was a popular show in which stop-motion animated celebrities battled to the death. It ran from 1998 to 2002 and was brought back in 2006 before being canceled again in 2007. According to ‘Deadline,’ MTV has recruited rapper/actor Ice Cube to work alongside co-producer Ben Hurwitz. Ice Cube and Hurwitz hope to find a home for the series on streaming and digital platforms. Ice Cube will also reportedly star in the show, though his role has yet to be disclosed. Some people speculate that he could take over the role of the referee, who was previously voiced by Mills Lane. MTV is also bringing back other popular ’90s shows including, ‘Daria,’ ‘TRL,’ ‘Spring Break’ and ‘The Real World.’
