The trademark wisecracks flow in the first trailer for New Line-mgm’s “Barbershop 3: The Next Cut,” released five months before its April 15 opening.
The third version of the Chicago-set franchise sees the barbershop — run by Ice Cube’s Calvin — having teamed up with the beauty shop, operated by Angie (Regina Hall), in a single location. The new faces include Common and Nicki Minaj.
Cedric the Entertainer, Anthony Anderson, Jb Smoove, Lamorne Morris, Sean Patrick Thomas, Deon Cole and rapper Tyga are also in the trailer, which focuses on the shop coming together to prevent gang violence. At one point, Cube admonishes Cedric for failing to hit the floor during gunfire and responding, “I’m too old to get up.”
The trailer also sees Cedric give a youngster a George Jefferson-style cut for talking back to his mother.

It’s been almost 12 years since Barbershop 2: Back In Business was released. During this time the pleas for a third instalment to the franchise have been nearly non-existent. But, lo and behold, Barbershop 3 has been in the works, and now we’ve got our very first peek at what the comedy will look like. Barbershop: The Next Cut is almost certainly not going to win the franchise any new fans, but from the look of the returning actors, and the injection of new blood in this trailer, it should easily have enough to placate those who were amused by the original. The Next Cut looks to merge together the first two Barbershop films with the world of the Queen Latifah -ed spin-off, Beauty Shop. Since both Calvin’s Barbershop and the Beauty Shop were struggling, the owners decided to knock down the wall separating them »

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. »
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.
