Ice Cube took to Twitter Monday (August 22) to set the record straight about a suspicious Facebook account that was claiming to be run by Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr.
Several posts from the page show images of Jackson as Cube’s character, Craig, and comedian DC Young Fly as Chris Tucker’s character, Smokey, alluding to an upcoming installment of the Friday film series, but according to Cube, the claims are false. He wasted no time debunking the fraudulent Facebook account on Twitter, writing, “This is fake. My son doesn’t have a Facebook account. Can’t mess with a classic.”
Cube went on to write in the next tweet, “We had a meeting. Can’t do Last Friday unless we do it right. Ball is New Line Cinema’s hands. Bat is in mine.”
The most recent Friday movie was released in 2002, when Cube
and Tucker (correction: it was just Cube who appeared in the sequels) appeared in Friday After Next. According to Jackson’s IMDB profile, the only film he has in the works is Ingrid Goes West with Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen, while his pops is scheduled to be in the Scrooge story Humbug and Fist Fight starring Charlie Day, both due out in 2017.
