Nearly three years after Tracy Morgan
almost lost his life in a car collision, the comedian is returning to the big screen in Fist Fight
, and ET has a first look at the movie!
When mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Charlie Day) gets the school's toughest teacher, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), fired, Strickland challenges Campbell to an after-school fight. Morgan plays the school's football coach in the comedy.
"I had a lot of support coming back," Morgan says in the behind-the-scenes footage. "I have a lot of support, and it feels good."
Morgan spent weeks in a rehabilitation center following the June 2014 crash, but in the movie, it's Day's character who might be needing physical therapy.
"Snitches get stitches," Strickland says in a clip.
As the title would suggest, the movie features a big fight scene, which ET learned took eight days to shoot.
"I seen how long the damn fight was, and I was like, "Aw man, this is going to take a few sessions," Cube shares. "We got our bumps and our bruises, but that's what we're made for."
Fist Fight opens Feb. 17.
