Ice Cube says he still wants to make another Friday movie; "That's my dream"

04.16.2015

Friday Ice Cube Chris Tucker

A fourth installment in the FRIDAY franchise has been stuck in development hell at New Line pretty much since FRIDAY AFTER NEXT was released almost thirteen years ago, but Ice Cube is still down for another Friday in the hood. The cult classic will return to select theaters for one day only on Monday, April 20 (I'm sure most of you can figure out why that date was picked) to mark the film's 20th anniversary, and while speaking with The Wrap, Ice Cube was asked if there is going to be another FRIDAY sequel.

I hope so.That’s my dream. I think all the parties involved, all the people that’s been in the franchise, people from the first one to the third one, want to do another one. It’s really up to the movie companies to step up. When they see stuff like this, they’ll realize how much people love this movie. Sometimes you owe it to the fans to do what the fans want. I hope they step up.

Ice Cube goes on to say "We might have to call it ‘Last Friday’ because it might end up being the last one," which is reportedly the same title he was considering for the project back in 2011.

FRIDAY has its fans, but the sequels never received the same amount of love as the first film, and I'm just not sure if most people are going to want to check out LAST FRIDAY. Should Ice Cube just let it go, or are you interested in seeing another FRIDAY movie?

F. Gary Gray's N.W.A. biopic STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON starring Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. as the rapper will be in theaters on August 14, 2015.

Get a kickstarter on this like they did Super Troopers 2.

I like the idea of a family reunion type setting. I also think it would be cool for Chris Tucker to come back. God knows he could use it. But don't replace Mike Epps, bring them all back.

I'd like to see a 4th, but Tucker is a must. His character made the first one and it's a shame he wasn't a part of the sequels.

The all-female reboot with Melissa McCarthy is what we REALLY want...

Seriously though, I really hope they can pull this off. I'd love to see it be Craig's family reunion and have everyone from the neighborhood and Rancho Cucomunga return. It would be funny if Money Mike was still a pimp and his bottom bitch/boyfriend was Damon. Deebo should have converted to Islam in prison and now he's a spiritual Malcolm X type that protects the neighborhood. Smokey should be a drug counselor for the YMCA who still smokes, just keeps it a secret. Uncle Elroy and Day-Day should

And for the record, I think a lot of us love the 2nd and 3rd movies. Yeah, the first is a classic, but the other two are so damn funny and quotable.

Some dreams are best left to the imagination.
If he keeps talking like this, maybe someone oughtta knock him da FUCK out!
But seriously... they tried re-catching lightning in a bottle; TWICE. It didn't work out... I don't know if a third attempt would turn out all that differently.

Anybody ever notice that everything Ice Cube's ever done always deals within a span of 1 day. His hit song "today was a good day" then all the Fridays, both Barbershops, His recent movie with Kevin Hart, etc....

Like dude, change it up a little.
