Ice Cube Talks Last Friday Movie


Ice Cube sat down with Sway on Shade 45 and says the hold up with Chris Tucker signing on for the Last Friday movie boils down to the script...

Ice Cube tells Sway,
"We was waiting on New Line to cut a check. They did that, and now, I'm writing the next 'Friday' movie. To me, it's really about not asking Chris over and over again. It's about putting the script in his hand and getting the ball rollin' for real. He's not gonna say yes until he see the script and like what he's doing in the new movie. That, to me, is the next step."

"I love Chris, I want him to do the movie. I think his fans want it. Ultimately, that's what we in the business for: to please our fans and the people who've supported us all these years -- to give them what they want, not just give them what we want to give them."

Maybe 10 years ago people would care. They waited way to long for this. Who wants to see Smokey and Craig looking like uncles? After Chris Tucker went Hollywood years ago and ruined his career they should have made a movie focusing on Pinky. If done right that could have been another hood classic. If it's made I'll catch it at the Redbox.

I'll drop 10 on it. The 3 movies combined took $36m to make and gross'd over $121m. If they can get Chris back it would be the biggest payday yet despite how long overdue the shit is..

Ain't Cube and Chris too old to play Craig and Smokey?

Friday was a classic,the Cooley high of my generation but letz move on.

dreadee said...

I don't care how old they are, the movie will still be mad funny!

Yours Truly said...

It really shouldn't matter if the script is in his hand or not considering ALL the money problems Deacon Tucker been going through its not like he really have a choice....go ahead and sign the dotted line Chris and stop playing before uncle sam send you on a 1way ticket beside Mr.Snipes lol

Totally agree with BeeGee I will pay to see it AND buy the REAL DVD. Yall pay to see Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell act ageless, why not support Cube? The movies are classics, whether you call them hood or not. Yall bourgeois ass RWS people smh...

Fuck Chris Tucker, Cube shouldn't have to beg that nigga to be in his movie. He trying to put money in Chris pocket. Nigga talking about he wanna be a role model. What the fuck has he done in the last decade? His last funny movies were Money Talks and the 1st Rush Hour. Cube trying to save his ungrateful ass from complete irrelevancy.

My pops told me to ask for my bike back... you know I wouldn't trip.

Would love to see another Friday with Chris Tucker involved. Long time coming, if you ask me.

Anonymous said...

I wont be seeing this. Both of them look 55 years old......no thanks.

Even if he did came back it wouldn't be that funny. The Skinny Chris Tucker was funnier. The skinny Martin Lawrence was funnier. Now that they are old they just aint funny no damn more.

Cube got some good ass hair. I thought the curl would have f*cked it up, but I guess not.

I absolutely LOVE Ice Cube! I can't wait to see this movie! :)

Chris Tucker is a Christian now. No time for foolishness.

If cube wrote a great script it wouldn't matter how old they were, it would still be entertaining. A good actor/comedian can't save a poorly written story...so I understand Chris wanting to see the product first. miss those guys!

@ 3:58, why would the curl fuck up his hair? You talking texture wise? How?

Anonymous said...

Cube does have some pretty hair. He's not aging well tho.....

Anonymous said...

@5:31 IDK. Every ninja I know who used to have a curl does not have hair anymore. Perhaps they just didn't have their curl done correctly.

He looks like the same Cube from "Boyz In The Hood" to Me!

What is it going to be about Craig and Smokey cashing their social security checks. Then they go and buy some wine and play checkers. I think I'll pass on this bullshit.

Anonymous said...

people complainin gonna be the first in line to see this.....did Craig finally marry ,is Smokey really smoke free,are his parents still crazy..say what you will. This movie is a hood classic and not because one person went to see it in the movies either.

Probably because they tried to go from the curl straight to the relaxer. That did NOT work out for most people. That curl had people's hair long and thick as hell. They tried to perm it and it broke off and fell out. They had to start over.

RE: 12:16 "And you all are the same ones protesting Tyler Perry movies."

"Friday" featured a full black family with a father living in house who was employed and not tripping with the moms. How many of those has Tyler featured, with jobs that are truly representative of our community and an intact family? Seems to me it was always some bougie fantasy shit and broken homes. I am not saying we don't have jobs like that but I am saying we didn't/don't all grow up Cosby nor do we all get raised by our pistol packing ex stripper grandma.

No offense, but a neighborhood cross eyed bully who rides around on a stolen bike punking people is no different than a pistol whipping grandma.

No, no, no @2:25 it's...everytime I come in the kitchen you in the kitchen in the gat damn refridgerator eating up all the food..... That's one of my fave scenes. I used to rewind that scene and so many others so many times with my friends. Till one day my mother got sick and tired of me watching Friday that she hid it from me. She also got so sick and tired of my 14yr old behind listening to Biggies "Fuckin' you tonight" that she recorded over the song. I wasn't allowed to listen to Biggie and Kimmy when I was younger. I had to hide and listen to them, and get my older cousins to record their music on cassette for me. Ahhh the good ole days. I remember the days when I actually used to take the time out with a pad and pen to learn the words of artists songs. Yeah I went off topic, the 90's is my fav era. I got caught up in the moment.
All you bishes need to back up off of my Ice Cube lol. I kid. I :heart: me some Ice Cube mmmmmhmmm. There were so many sexy men in the industry back in the 90's, lawd lemme stop.

6:39 It is different the neighborhood bully is not your parent or guardian.

Anonymous said...

^^^^^^^A storyline about adults being scared of a cross-eyed bully on a bike, pales in comparison to an old lady that is intolerant of disrespectful individuals and does all she can to defend her family.

@4:38pm "I Can Do Bad All by Myself" -2009, "Daddys Little Girls" -2007, "Meet The Browns" - 2008. There is only one movie that I can recall where Madea had a gun and that was in "Madea's Class Reunion"-2003. On IMBD, its coincidentally in the description that she carries a gun. I have a feeling you haven’t seen any of his movies. I suggest you watch some before you try to judge.
