Ice Cube Confirms End of Friday Franchise


Ten years ago rapper Ice Cube announced he was filming one last installment of his comedy franchise 'Friday [click here if you missed that].' 

Guess he should have checked with Warner Bros. first...

Over the weekend Ice Cube announced that Warner Bros. was refusing to make any more 'Friday' sequels, accusing the studio of 'highjacking' the happiness of the culture.

That's unfortunate...but then too, Friday is a freaking classic and it's probably best there's no sequel. Every movie doesn't have to have a sequel or be remade.

There are other days of the week too, try that.

He is low key trying to win blk ppl back. Talking bout remember Friday yall and how good we felt. The reason why some of y'all and your children became weed heads.

He should go ask Trump to advocate for him to do another sequel since he's still the darling of the Republican party. And I'm sure the studio heads are also Republicans and probably plays golf with him anyway.

Warner Brothers and the rest of these studios don't have a damn clue of what else to do. The well of creativity is dry as hell. They are too busy remaking Batman, Superman and Spiderman for the 624th time. I think it is best the Friday does not get remade or sequeled. It is a classic, and it has vibe that cannot be re-created.

@9:56am. I agree. And besides how would another sequel look like without Deebo and John Witherspoon? Leave it alone Cube.

^^^Co-sign....We don't need a sequel to FRIDAY with 1/3 of the cast deceased...Cleary, Cube doesn't own the rights to his movie & now he wanna yell racism....My advice is make another movie...Is that so fukin hard with All this content out here writing itself.....

Funny because a little more than a year ago, some production company was doing some visuals where the first two were filmed. Sorry it takes work away from upcoming black actors but besides the best characters having moved on, it was played out.

Ice Cube and DJ Pooh wrote the 1st Friday movie, and a company invested the 2 million in it, and it ended up grossing over $300,000,000 and counting. Guess how much all of the actors made? A measly $5,000. John Witherspoon said he, Chris, and all the actors made $5,000. I personally think Ice Cube could have come back after the film grossed million and atleast given then $100,000 a piece as a bonus because 5,000 was a shame. This is why you don't see Chris in anymore Fridays. Even if Cube had to pay out of his cut or forced the investors to renegotiate BEFORE the 2nd Friday, he could have. Cube talks about Black wealth but he should have not done business with that company until they gave a back end bonus. John said he got 400,000 for the 2nd Friday. See, by Cube being the owner, he could have done a little extra as a good measure, but ge didn't. I know its business, but John Witherspoon, Anne Marie Horsford deserved a little more as legends.

Dear Laa soul, who cares if cube is republican or not. However he identifies it is his free choice and personalright. You realize that? Just like all the other rights on the table - free choice. get off his ballsack

Laa soul said...

@12:37pm. Cube is that you, LOL! And you're right just like Cube has free choice, so do I by expressing my opinion on a blog. If you ask me, it seems like I touched a nerve.BTW, no need to respond because I don't debate with people who have the word ballsack in their vocabulary because it would be pointless.

Have a wonderful day!

@8:26 am. Thanks for the laugh... other days, indeed. Though I was weed head long before the Friday franchise.

Smart move from WB. Waited for key characters to pass and still thought we'd get a decent movie? Nah. We'll be lucky if we can even get The Boondocks to actually air without Pops.

They cancelled the sequel due to his affiliation with the former occupier of the WH. No Black person is riding with this sellout, who backed the Aluminum Foil plan/two page proposal!. There I fixed it for all of the previous commentors!
