Really? I mean… REALLY Ice Cube? I guess I really shouldn’t be that surprised.
The series that only got progressively worse with each sequel, is probably about to continue that trend with a 4th film. In my humble opinion, the first film in the franchise (Friday) was good and filling as is; no sequels were necessary. But you know how it goes over there out west, and the perplexing decisions they sometimes make.
Anyway… Cube is reportedly in talks with New Line Cinema to write, produce and star in another installment of the Friday franchise.
Chris Tucker is said to be in talks to reprise his role as well, with Cube possibly in the director’s chair.
Collectively, the first 3 Friday movies, released in 1995, 2000 and 2002 respectively, grossed over $121 million worldwide; per Rotten Tomatoes, as I already noted, the first film was the only title in the franchise to be well-received critically. The last 2 were rated decisevely “Rotten.”
What exactly the plot for Friday #4 will be is anyone’s guess right now.
So, who’s up for a other Friday movie?
