Ice Cube Talks "Friday" Sequel, Says Chris Tucker May Return

Ice Cube gives a progress update on the new "Friday" sequel, and says that Chris Tucker may return as Smokey.

It was back in December that Ice Cube confirmed that he was on board to film the fourth installment of the acclaimed Friday series. Now, in an interview with Global Grind, Cube gives an update on the fourth and reportedly final film in the stoner comedy series and drops some news about one of the film's possible co-stars.

According to Cube, he is deep in the writing process of the film, which will be titled Last Friday. In addition, Cube  been in talks with actor/comedian Chris Tucker to reprise the role of Smokey from the first film. Although Tucker's return to the series has yet to be confirmed, Cube says that his former co-star seems to be on board.

"I'm still writing [the screenplay]. I'm still in the process, I'm deep into it...[the title is] Last Friday," he noted. "I want [Chris Tucker] to be in it. He's given us every indication that he's gonna be in it. Until he shows up on set, you never know. That's really how it goes." 

Cube is also reportedly developing a vigilante drama series titled "Eye For an Eye" for FX. He will also appear in the Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum comedy 21 Jump Street in theaters this weekend.

    yall crazy mike epps need to be in it we will get double the laughs with him and chris tucker in the same film accomplishing the same thing we grown to love day day and if he not there it wont be as epic as we want it to be

    they should just get jackie chan to be in it

  • Sensaye252

    That would be dope. What would be the premise though? They should make it that one of Craig's parents died. And Craig is back in town for a couple days. On Friday, Craig's last day in town, Smokey talks him into smokin'. Then the adventure begins. The thing is, it's not like anyone from the original Friday film blew up so much that they don't got time to do a sequel. I can't think of anyone from the original cast, besides Chris Tucker, that should be difficult to recruit. By the way, what the fuck is Chris Tucker doing? Smokin'?

      You have to have Craig's mother die, you can't have a Friday movie without Mr. Jones..... and it should be the other way around..... that Craig talks Smokey into smoking after like 15 years sober from all things, with every motherfucker out for payback the mexicans, Deebo, Damon after Money MIke.... Deebo and the Mexicans in prison escape together with a common goal to get Craig back.... in another part of the hood. Smokey should play the role of a successful business man sober and making shit tons of money STRAIGHT as hell. Roach can't be in cause he's dead and have Pinky in there as well. Either way I can't wait for it.

    I feel like no one that we want to be in this is going to be in it and its going to end up feeling like a spin-off rather than an actual sequel

  • Rxgelio

    Yes! Smokey has GOT to do this! It may be his shot to bring his career back! (from what I understand, he's been undergoing some tough times...) If not that, do it for US, Chris!

  • GBtha G

    Very good newz.Bring back Smokey. I just cant wait to watch the movie so dat I can learn how to trick'em muthafuckin golddiggaz.new tricks yo..Big shout out 2 tha Big Fish!!!!!!!!

  • DutchWeazel

    That would be dope, with Mike Epps and Chris Tucker, and maybe Kendrick Lamar?

    • DutchWeazel

      Why?, maybe because it would be a good good movement. Cube oldschool West Coast veteran & Kendrick Lamar (IMO) the new West Coast MC to watch (listen to), And yeah I think he's gonna become a legend also By the way, in the movie he aint have to act, just a role as himself (as a rapper)

      lmao Kendrick Lamar wtf

    • Anonymous

      Kendrick Lamar? And why?????

  • billy bucks

    The first is a classic. Bring back D.J. Pooh to help co-write and I might go see it. Am I the only person on earth who thinks Mike Epps is overrated? He was funnier in "All About the Benjamins" than in the Friday films. He tries WAY too hard.

  • KushNGrapeCigz

    Bet $100 Chris aint finna be in it.

  • Steve

    I find it interesting how Chris Tucker has finaly agreed to do a sequel for the Friay movies as he had supposedly beome too big to star in them when he was earning top dollars through the Rush Hour series. But after his well publicied tax problems, it seems he has no option bbut to do them.

    SAME TIME MAN I DON'T KNOW YOU. SAME TIME

  • Mike

    As long as both chris & cube look back at the first Friday and make it funny like that one or close then were cool.

  • Anonymous

    PUT THAT GUN DOWN SON AND GET KNOCKED OUT LIKE YA FATHER USED TO

  • rise and shine

    no point making this film if chris tucker isnt in it, friday was one of the funniest films ever made, next friday was average and friday after next was weak, funny scenes but still a weak film.

    • down and out

      Like we need Christ Tucker to make a movie funny. You obviously didn't watch Rush Hour 2 & 3. The movie can be a success without Smokey in my opinion.

  • DL Dub

    Ice Cube has always had the most perfect afro. I been jealous of that niggas hair since higher learning.

    • The Future

      ROFLMFAO *DEAD* "Only way he opens his mouth and is productive is when he's humming notes on a man." I didn't know Sonic's best friend used such language/imagery.

    • Knuckles

      Why would Cube call two talentless posers and hacks? And why would you even bring that shit up anyway, you non pussy getting mufucka? Dude's not even hilarious...he's pitiful. Only way he opens his mouth and is productive is when he's humming notes on a man. Faggot ass.

    • RUFUS

      AND THROW IN YOUR NO PUSSY GETTIN ASS TOO. SHIT NIGGA IT IS A COMEDY, WE ALL NEED SOMEONE TO LAUGH AT AND YO PATHETIC ASS IS MO HILARIOUS DEN ALL OF EM

    lets see how many of those people complain that "this isnt hip hop news" now.... fucking hypocrites.

    • DL Dub

      Clearly knuckles was not paying attention to what dude was saying from the get go, just ready to argue.

    • Knuckles

      Let's see how you don't realize Cube is a hip hop legend that switched to films and the Friday series is hip hop as hell cause it's for the hip hop generation, you stupid muthaufucka. Go listen to your Nicki Minaj and Rhianna albums, you dumb bitch. You know you have both of them. Probably eat strudels and sip tea while playing them albums and shit wearing your favorite pajamas you bitch ass nigga.
