Tucker talks another Friday

08.21.2007
Somehow, Chris Tucker fell ass first into a ridiculously lucrative franchise when he signed on to star opposite Jackie Chan in RUSH HOUR. Ever since then, he's been set for life. And now, with the RH3 publicity stuff all done with, I guess he feels like he might need a little pocket change to buy himself a lime green Porsche with a toilet in it or something, so he's toying with the idea of making another FRIDAY flick.

“I would love to, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it... But come with a great script and I’ll consider it. We’ll see... The first ‘Friday’ took only 20 days to film and $2 million to shoot... It was so special to me.”

I dunno, I've only seen FRIDAY when I've been drunk, but I enjoyed it. I kinda think that Tucker might have outgrown the role though, especially when he narrowly missed an Oscar for his performance in THE FIFTH ELEMENT. Still though, I guess we'll see.

Did Somebody Say 20 Days?

I hope, if they decide to do another one, it will take approximately 20,000,000 days so I will be long dead

Whoa.....

I've never met a black person who doesn't like the original Friday, joel1975, that is fucking amazing....so amazing, in fact, that I'm almost certain you've never seen it.

Go figure.

Did he finally come out of rehab or something? I mean his absence in the second film as explained by, Craig was him being in rehab. Tucker isn't skinny enough to play Smokey. Just stop acting all together.

Return to Friday if the script is good?

So, if the 'script' is good, he'll return to a Friday flick?

I'm African-American, and I never got into those flicks...

And, as much as I find the Rush Hour flicks funny and entertaining, those films are not strong, character driven films either...

Tucker was pretty serious and haunting in 'Dead Presidents'...so we know he has some acting skills...{He just needs to know where to utilize them}.

The first Friday was an awesome film but the second one wasn't too good and I didn't even bother to see the third one it looked so bad. So they should lay this to rest.

You know, I love the original FRIDAY. There have been so many times at 3 AM on a Summer Friday night I've watched it on Comedy Central or some other cable channel, and it holds up whether you get to see it uncensored or not. I think that you could potentially re-team Ice Cube and Tucker and make this sort of like Clerks 2. But I think you'd have to do it without Mike Epps. It could begin with like Smokey getting out of jail or something basic to bring back the character.

And of course

And of course it would have to be filmed in just 20 days.
