‘Every producer in Hollywood conspires to shoot in Miami’ says Ice Cube

Ride Along 2 is set to hit theaters on January 15th.

In the film “Ride Along 2”, Ice Cube and Kevin Hart play law enforcement officers sent to Miami to help bring down a drug ring. While some parts of the film were shot in Atlanta, the rest were filmed in Miami using key locations such as South Beach and the Port of Miami.
 
Late last week, the City of Miami and the Official Miami Walk of Fame in the Bayside Marketplace honored the cast of “Ride Along 2” with a star designed by Brazilian Neo-pop artist Romero Britto.

“Every producer in Hollywood conspires to shoot in Miami,” said Ice Cube in his acceptance speech. “Even if it’s a Western they ask ‘Yo, can we shoot this in Miami?’
The 57-year-old actor added: “The location adds a lot of value to the movie and makes you want to be there.”
