Rapper and actress Nicki Minaj has signed on to join the growing cast of MGM's upcoming comedy sequel Barbershop 3. She will play a new character named Draya, who works as a beautician in the beauty shop area of the Barbershop. The role marks Nicki Minaj's second big screen performance, after making her feature debut on last year's The Other Woman.

Common Boards Barbershop 3

28 April 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

MGM is betting that the Barbershop franchise has plenty of life left in it, luring Ice Cube and Cedric The Entertainer back to reprise their starring roles. Now the film has recent Oscar winner Common attached. The original 2003 movie found Cube as the South Side Chicago barber Calvin Palmer, a man who plied his trade surrounded by friends, lovers and oddballs. It was successful enough to spawn not only a sequel in 2004’s Barbershop 2: Back In Business, but a spin-off in the Queen Latifah-centric Beauty Shop and a short-lived TV series.Exactly what will happen in the new film isn’t yet clear, but we could predict lots of banter, friendly insults and possibly some comment on the current economic climate. The Best Man director Malcolm D. Lee is on board to call the shots, working from a script by Kenya Barris, creator of the Us TV sitcom Black-ish. »

'Barbershop 3' Moves Forward with Director Malcolm D. Lee

19 February 2015 5:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Malcolm D. Lee is finalizing a deal to direct Barbershop 3 for MGM, with the studio quickly putting together deals for Ice Cube (Calvin Palmer) and Cedric the Entertainer (Eddie) to reprise their roles from 2002's Barbershop and 2004's Barbershop 2: Back In Business. We reported in March of last year that MGM is moving forward with the sequel, with Ice Cube set to both star and produce.

The report from March revealed that the studio was seeking a screenwriter, but it isn't known if the script is currently being worked on. The original Barbershop was a surprise hit in 2002, taking in a healthy $75 million domestic from just a $15 million budget. The story followed Calvin and the wide-ranging characters that inhabit his Chicago barbershop. The 2004 sequel Barbershop 2: Back In Business earned $65 million domestic from a $30 million budget, and it also spawned the spinoff Beauty Shop starring Queen Latifah.
