Ice Cube reveals he is working on a new Friday movie.Because everything that is great in Hollywood has to become a sequel and a reboot, Ice Cube says he's trying to make another Friday movie. Ice Cube tweeted out a major announcement on Monday, along with a piece of art depicting the cast of the original gangster comedy in a "Last Supper" situation.
Apparently he's already talked to New Line Cinema about making Last Friday, but only if he "can do it right." And for many fans, doing it "right" would mean finding a way to bring Chris Tucker back to the franchise. In case you do not know, Friday was written by Ice Cube and DJ Pooh and directed by F. Gary Gray in 1995. It became an instant classic and earned $30 million at the box office from a budget of only $3 million. The movie's two sequels, Next Friday, which came out in 2000, and the horribly titled Friday After Next, which was released in 2002, didn't live up to the first movie's expectations. In addition, Ice Cube used Twitter to let others know that the supposed Friday remake starring his son O'Shea Jackson Jr. that was going viral on Facebook was actually an internet hoax.
We had a meeting. Can't do Last Friday unless we can do it right. Ball is in New Line Cinema's hands. Bat is in mine pic.twitter.com/IEL6QhOUqv Ice Cube (@icecube) August 22, 2016
This is fake. My son doesn't have a Facebook account. Can't mess with a classic. pic.twitter.com/gIbwxgJOrg Ice Cube (@icecube) August 22, 2016
