Ice Cube has claimed that Harvey Weinstein released his film, ‘Janky Promoters’, on DVD unbeknownst to him.

The 49-year-old rapper starred in the 2009 comedy as a shady concert promoter, with Mike Epps.

When a fan tweeted about the film, calling it “the funniest underrated movie” and “a classic”, the actor responded.

The father-of-five admitted that the film was bitter-sweet to him, as he claimed: “We never had a chance to finish or promote Janky Promoters. Harvey Weinstein and his brother put this movie out on DVD behind our backs before we could finish the film.”

The actor also claimed that the editing was done without his knowledge: “They actually had editors finish the movie in secret.”

‘Janky Promoters’ only made $9,000, from a budget of $10 million, before its quiet release on DVD.

After his response, another fan urged the rapper to re-do the ending, as they tweeted: “(B)ring it bacc & do it the way you want to do it” to which Ice revealed there’s another version.

“Search for the directors cut. My attempt to salvage the movie… Its much better to me (sic),” he tweeted.
