New Line and Ice Cube talk about doing another Friday film with Chris Tucker

11.16.2011

Ice Cube has been trying to put together another FRIDAY film for awhile now. I guess that the idea just comes up then after a bit they put it to bed. After the first film, I really had no interest in seeing the rest. NEXT FRIDAY was mildly entertaining mainly because of Mike Epps.

Now it looks like Ice Cube wants to get Chris Tucker back to reprise his Smokey role. But will this happen? A few years back when asked if he would revisit the franchise, Tucker said that he could not be depicted as a pot smoker due to his religious beliefs. Recently, Tucker got back into the acting game by joining THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK which is being helmed by David O. Russell.

There's really no concrete word on whether Tucker has been offered his old role, so take this with a grain of salt. I think Ice Cube has a better chance of getting Tucker now. The rapper/actor is currently rehashing the idea of LAST FRIDAY with New Line. So I guess we'll see what happens.

Nah. This wouldn't work unless everyone is back and Tucker is willing to do some Rated R shit. And as for Ice Cube, he needs to forget about family films and stick to what he knows best.

Dream come true

As for Mike Epps, he is the most unfunny person I've ever seen and I blame Ice Cube for his success. I cringe whenever he's on screen. >=/

I second that, don't see his comedy special on NetFlix, one of the most horrible stand ups i have ever seen, just pure nonsense put together in no sort of organization or thought. He should think about Kevin Hart instead, that guy is freaking awesome and funny as hell.

Chris Tucker reprising his role would be the only reason I'd want to see another Friday movie.

Yeah

I heard Chris Tucker was holding out, but Ice Cube was down for whatever.

Friday is one of my favorite comedies of all time. It's hilarious and extremely quotable. I'm in the middle with this idea since Tucker seems MIA most of the time and Ice Cube hasn't been in top form. I'm not against though as they worked so well in the original.
