Its been 17 years since the last Friday movie. On Friday, Ice Cube appeared on ESPN, giving us an update on the upcoming Friday movie, rumored to be title “Last Friday”. Cube says he hopes to deliver the new film by the 25th anniversary of the original film, which would be around April 26, 2020.
The said the script is done, they’re now going back and forth with the studio on notes, so they’re hoping to get into pre-production and will soon start hiring. No word on the cast yet or if Chris Tucker would do this new film for the culture.
In 2018, Chris Tucker did show interest in his former role. “If it comes together right, I’m definitely gonna look at it and see if it works,” he told the hosts of ESPN’s The Plug. “‘Cause I never say never; I definitely want to check it out. If it works, it’s a possibility.”
