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.
