Ice Cube and Chris Tucker to Return for New Friday Sequel

16 November 2011 4:19 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

New Line Cinema is in talks with Ice Cube to write, produce and star in another installment of the "Friday" franchise. While negotiations have just started, there is a chance that Ice Cube may direct as well. Tiny Lister just spoke to TMZ, revealing that Chris Tucker is also in talks to return as the pot-obsessed Smokey. The actor appeared in the original "Friday" back in 1995, but then refused to return for any sequels, citing religious reasons. All that has changed now. Tucker and Ice Cube are planning to get together next week to discuss the fourth installment. "This is gonna be the big one," said Lister. »

New Line Plots Return to Friday with Ice Cube, Possibly Chris Tucker

16 November 2011 2:59 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A lot can go down between Thursday and Saturday, but it’s been almost ten years since we’ve seen a Friday movie. That could all change as New Line is in talks with Ice Cube to write, produce and star in another installment of the series. Cube executive produced and starred as Craig Jones in the 1995 original and reprised his role both on screen and off in the 2000 sequel Next Friday and 2002’s Friday After Next. Cube may also be in line to direct the next segment. A favorite from the first movie, Smokey, played by Chris Tucker, is in talks to return for the new film. Cube apparently wants him to reprise his role but Tucker has been non-committal. Tucker and Cube were the main focus of the first movie as they spent most of the day smoking, drinking and doing all kinds of ill shit. Hit the jump for more. »

Ice Cube and New Line Considering Fourth ‘Friday’

16 November 2011 2:22 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It would be a bit unfair to consider the Friday franchise “dead” — though I wouldn’t exactly call it a “franchise,” either — but it’s still one that I’d never expect to see another installment of, especially when you remember that the last film came out nearly nine years ago. Studios, like everyone else, don’t care what I think, since Deadline tells us that Ice Cube and New Line Cinemas are discussing the possibility of a fourth movie set on everybody’s favorite day of the week (be thankful I didn’t write this in late March, if you catch my drift) that… Cube would write, produce, and star in; there’s also the open possibility of him getting in the director’s chair.

This is still an early prospect, mind you, so other developments won’t be coming out right away, but there are already some talks »

New Line and Ice Cube talk about doing another Friday film with Chris Tucker

16 November 2011 1:50 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ice Cube has been trying to put together another Friday film for awhile now. I guess that the idea just comes up then after a bit they put it to bed. After the first film, I really had no interest in seeing the rest. Next Friday was mildly entertaining mainly because of Mike Epps. Now it looks like Ice Cube wants to get Chris Tucker back to reprise his Smokey role. But will this happen? A few years back when asked if he would revisit the franchise, Tucker said that he could not be depicted »

Ice Cube and Chris Tucker Planning Friday Sequel

16 November 2011 1:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 1995 comedy Friday launched the acting career of Chris Tucker, where he played the hilarious drug dealer Smokey alongside Ice Cube. Tommy Lister, who played Deebo in Friday, reveals both Ice Cube and Chris Tucker are hatching plans for a new Friday sequel. Here's what Tommy Lister had to say about this new project below.

"There's a lot of conversation, that's hopefully going down next week with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker about doing one more Friday. This is going to be the big one. We talked on the phone a couple of weeks ago, and I'm going on Chris' private jet to do something in St. Louis, where I chase Chris on the stage."

Ice Cube wrote the original Friday, along with DJ Pooh, but it isn't known who is writing this untitled sequel. Friday, which grossed $27.9 million from a $3.5 million budget, spawned the sequels Next Friday and The Friday After Next, »

Ice Cube In Talks For A New Friday Movie

16 November 2011 12:40 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Long before he entered the "godawful family films" phase of his career, actor/rapper Ice Cube was making a name for himself with a little 1995 flick called Friday. Ice Cube both starred in and co-wrote the comedy about two unemployed slackers who have to scrounge up the $200 they owe to a drug dealer by the day's end. Friday also introduced the world to the shrill-voiced splendor of Chris Tucker, who played Smokey and went on to roles in movies such as The Fifth Element and the Rush Hour series. Now it seems they may be trying to get the gang back together. Deadline says Ice Cube is in talks with New Line to write, star in, and produce a brand new Friday movie. If it comes together, this would be the third Friday sequel, following up on 2000's Next Friday and 2002's Friday After Next. Cube may also direct the »

A Fourth 'Friday' In The Works, Chris Tucker To Return?

16 November 2011 10:58 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As we already know, Chris Tucker doesn't work very often. 1995's "Friday" launched the comic actor's film career thanks to his hilarious turn as the pot loving Smokey, but while the film became a hit spawning two sequels -- "Next Friday" and "Friday After Next" -- Tucker went on to other things, mostly involving Brett Ratner. Next year will mark a decade since the last installment in the franchise, but it looks like New Line wants to take another puff. »

Chris Tucker and Ice Cube are Doing Another 'Friday,' Says Tiny Lister (Plus 'Fifth Element' Sequel Talks)

16 November 2011 10:30 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Why not, right? While chatting up the goings-on of Tiny Lister, TMZ managed to get a couple tantalizing scoops out of the man, including the fact that Lister is meeting up with Chris Tucker and Ice Cube next week to discuss a fourth Friday movie, which he claims "is gonna be the big one." What's interesting about this one (other than it being rumored to be happening as far back as 2007) is it'll be the first sequel that sees Chris Tucker reprise his role as Smokey, having sat out the following two sequels, Next Friday (2000) and Friday After Next (2002). For Lister, he'll be returning to the franchise for the first time since 2000's Next Friday. No word on what the plot will be, but regardless we can't be the only ones interested in learning...

New Line, Ice Cube Plot Another ‘Friday’

16 November 2011 10:13 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

New Line Cinema is in talks with Ice Cube to write, produce and star in another installment of the Friday series. Cube could be in line to direct it as well, but all that is being worked out. A TMZ report says that Chris Tucker as being in serious talks to reprise his role in the film. They have had discussions and Cube wants him, I’m told, but it’s unclear whether that part is a reality. For one thing, when I interviewed Tucker several years ago for Playboy, he told me that because of his religion, he was reticent to be depicted in the pot smoking mode as his character Smokey was in the original film. He went as far as to say that he probably now wouldn’t have taken that memorable stint in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, because of the verbal explosion of profanity and »

Ice Cube and Chris Tucker Coming Back for Another 'Friday' Sequel?

16 November 2011 9:33 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though you may not know Tony "Tiny" Lister by name, you'd likely recognize the actor if you saw him because of his brief appearances in films like The Dark Knight, The Fifth Element, Jackie Brown and on a more depressing note, Little Nicky. However, Lister also has a recurring role in the comedy series that started with Friday, logically continued with Next Friday, and moved on with The Friday After Next. Though Lister only appeared in the first two films, he recently spoke with TMZ (via Movies.com) and revealed that he's soon meeting with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker about doing yet another Friday sequel. Tucker hasn't show up in the comedy series since the first film, so this reunion should be some great news for fans of the franchise. After all, the film is responsible for launching his career, and since he's trying to make a comeback after »

David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook Set for November 21, 2012

16 November 2011 9:16 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Weinstein Company has set the release date of David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook for November 21, 2012.  Based on the novel by Matthew Quick, the movie centers on a former high school teacher (Bradley Cooper) who returns home after four years in a mental institution to live with his mother (Jackie Weaver) and win back the affection of his estranged wife.  The movie also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Tucker, Julia Stiles, and Robert De Niro.  Silver Linings sounds like it could be awards material and now TWC can put "From the Oscar-nominated Director of The Fighter" on the poster. The Weinsteins will probably take Silver Linings out for a spin on the awards circuit before its November 21st release.  Of course, the Thanksgiving Day weekend is always crowded and so far the date also belongs to Alfonso Cuaron's sci-fi drama Gravity, the family comedy Parental Guidance, the Keanu Reeves' action-adventure 47 Ronin, »

David O. Russell’s ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ to Get Thanksgiving 2012 Release

16 November 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] This Thanksgiving brings a slew of intriguing releases, from family-friendly fare like The Muppets and Hugo to possible Oscar contenders like The Artist and My Week with Marilyn, and now we have at least one reason to look forward to next year's holiday as well. The Weinstein Co. have just decided on a November 21, 2012 release for David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook, which suggests the company sees the film as a potential player in next year's awards season -- no surprise, considering Russell's last film The Fighter was nominated for seven Oscars in 2010 including Best Picture and Best Director. The date also gives the movie plenty of time to make the festival rounds and garner some good buzz before hitting theaters. Based on a novel by Matthew Quick, the film follows a former high school teacher (Bradley Cooper) who moves back home after spending years in a mental institution. »

Brett Ratner's Oscars Departure: Five Other Things He Should Apologize For

9 November 2011 9:49 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

After a torrential downpour of indefensible comments, Brett Ratner apologized and stepped down as the producer of the 2012 Academy Awards telecast. In his official apology, the director went on to explain that he understands that his behavior has been inappropriate and that he is making strides to change his behavior in the future.

Ratner's apology is a step in the right direction. But here at Movies Blog, we'd like to see the "Tower Heist" filmmaker go the extra mile and apologize for a few other things he forgot to check off his list of offenses.

1. Directing "X-Men: The Last Stand"

Even the kindest fan of the series won't argue when putting down the last entry in the modern day X-Men movies. They killed Cyclops. I don't know how I can make this any clearer. They killed Cyclops off-screen. It was a travesty and something that Ratner never personally apologized for. »
