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, »

John Singleton Sues Paramount Over Hustle & Flow

19 October 2011 5:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker John Singleton has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures today, seeking $20 million for failure to live up to their deal with the 2005 indie drama Hustle & Flow.

John Singleton produced Hustle & Flow, which was the hottest commodity coming out of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. Despite New Line Cinema offering $10 million, John Singleton took Paramount's deal for $9 million for Hustle & Flow. He accepted less money because Paramount's deal included a "put" clause, where the studio promised to finance and distribute two movies John Singleton chose to produce, budgeted under $3.5 million. Six years later, Paramount hasn't made either of the two pictures under the deal, which is why John Singleton is suing. Here's what he had to say about the lawsuit below.

"I'd always had a great relationship with Paramount, going back to being an intern on the lot when I was at USC. But a deal's a deal and they didn't honor the deal. »

Casting! Here's info one one potentially great project, one that will probably find an appreciative audience, and one that will perhaps just make you hungry. I'll let you figure out which is which: Wentworth Miller joins Park Chan-wook's first English-language film, Stoker, John C. McGinley will realize his destiny by playing police chief to Tyler Perry in I, Alex Cross, and Tyler Posey will go to war with rival taco vendors in Taco Shop. I'm very excited for Stoker, which is about to shoot in Nashville and will be the English-language debut of Oldboy and Thirst director Park Chan-wook. The film is a Hitchcockian-sounding thriller written by Wentworth Miller, about a young woman who has to deal with the incursion of her mysterious uncle into the family after the death of her father. Mia Wasikowska plays the girl; Nicole Kidman is her mother; Matthew Goode is the uncle, and now »

Are "Teen Wolf" and tacos two great tastes that taste great together? We're about to find out, since MTV's lycanthropic heartthrob Tyler Posey has signed on to star in a new comedy all about this tasty treat.
