Now there's confirmation from Cube himself...

From TMZ
The speculation is over ... Ice Cube has finally confirmed he's resurrecting the 'Friday' franchise ... telling TMZ the goal is to bring back the entire ORIGINAL cast ... including Chris Tucker.

A rep for Cube Vision Productions tells us ... “Absolutely yes the studio is in the process of getting the entire original cast to do another 'Friday.'"

The statement continues, "[Ice Cube] is very excited about this and has every intention to make it happen.”

I'm not mad at Chris for saying he didn't want to be seen smoking weed and using all that profane lanuage. But I'm sure if he would have talked to Cube about changing Smokey up a little bit he would have. Now he's coming back after all the foreclosures and crap. Is Smokey gone smoke weed and curse this Friday? I can't wait to see and then I will know what to blog about Chris.

As far as chris not wanting to smoke or curse, it is called acting. U are an actor that playes a character, can u separate yourself from that mentality.

They can use the storyline that Smokey went to rehab and got saved. Surely some funny can come out of that!

Awww it's a shame Bernie Mac's no longer with us [RIP]. His part was fun-nay!!! Especially the part where he's being chased out of Ms.Parkers house by her husband lmao. His scream as he's trying to drive off. Anyhoo i'm excited by this news.

@Hit or Miss- I would like to think that with the amount of time that has passed since the last 'Friday', that the characters would have grown and are maybe schooling their children or children period. I'm pretty sure that Ice Cube doesn't think that people are going to pay to watch Smokey and Craig, now in their 30's or 40's smoking weed, cussin' and holding down a porch or stoop. I believe that the characters would show some growth.

Great! Another coon film! And the sad thing is many of you are anticipating this shit. Do you like seeing yourselves portrayed on big screens around the globe like this? So are Black people only capable of being unemployed, sitting on their Mama's porch daily, smoking weed? Y'all need to do better, for real. It's sad that y'all co-sign this shit.

If they can bring the entire cast back, that will really be the sh*'. Because the great Bernie Mac has passed. Loved that guy, meet him years ago...

Looking forward to this movie... While you at it Ice Cube, hit us up with another Barbershop!

Much Luv, keep it real!

OK. Let me get this straight. You criticize a movie that has yet to be made and released but in your pseudo intellect you chose to refer to people as "Coons". 10:54 and 11:15. Seems your pride is lower than the people you accuse

Pebbles said...

@9:18 & 9:20. I agree!!!

11:37, I don't need to criticize a movie that has yet to be made; I know what the preceedent "Friday" movies contained: straight coon shit that perpetuated Black stereotypes: we're lazy, unemployed, live at home and smoke weed all day. My intellect isn't "pseudo"; however, your ability to understand my point is. Your pride is nonexistent, simply because you're trying to defend a film that's doing NOTHING but setting us back a thousand years.

11:55, well said. co-sign on all that shit u said. black folks stay supporting shit that does us more harm than help. from tyler perry to this friday shit, we will never be #winning.

9:20 I agree, Chris is indeed saved so they will probably put that in the storyline.
9:59 That is the point time has passed so maybe he will be like his character in Barbershop, just trying to hold it down, they surely ain't on the stoop. But I look for the film to end with them sitting on the stoop.
This movie and House Party was it during my time. It showed two different aspects of growing up either in Watts or surburbia.
Bernie will surely be missed...

i hope the storyline have some growth 2 it, cause u can only smoke so much weed and cursing.

I say leave the film Friday in moth balls. Fridays time has come and gone. Why don't they try to do something original????

@ 11:55 I was unaware a movie could set a race back 1000 yrs...How about segregation, gangs, or crack cocaine..Not a 2 hr movie...Lighten up, it's just entertainment...Nobody is forcing you or your children to watch it..And the way the world views us has nothing to do with a movie..We were viewed as those things way before Cub or Tyler Perry came along...

I wonder if they'll have Miss Parker still doing her lawn & garden d*ck tease. LOL

I hope they bring back Rita (Janet/Freddie Jackson),Craig's ghetto ass girlfriend and Leticia the crackhead.....

Friday Fiend said...

Um, Craig's ghetto ass girlfriend Joy was played by Paula Jai Parker. Luv her!

Now what I want to know is Megan Goode comming back. She was the little girl who said she hate big Worm at the ice cream truck after he took her money and didn't give her any ice cream.
