Ice Cube Shares Positive Update On Fourth ‘Friday’ Movie

“We finally got some traction with Warner Bros," the actor says.

During a recent appearance on Flavor Flav’s SiriusXM show, “Flavor of the Week,” Ice Cube shared some positive updates about the Friday franchise. 

According to the “It Was A Good Day” rapper, who starred in and wrote the original three movies – “Friday,” “Next Friday” (2000), and “Friday After Next" (2002) — a fourth version of the 1995 comedy film is in the process.

“We're working on it. We finally got some traction with Warner Bros," Ice Cube revealed. "They have new leadership, my man Mike DeLuca, who used to be at New Line when I first started, when I first did the first “Friday” and “Players Club” and “All About the Benjamins.” Mike DeLuca was there. So, now he's running Warner Bros. And him and my man Michael Gruber was like, 'Yo, what the f**k is going on with Friday? Man, let's get this s**t back online.'"

Ice Cube also shared that he was “a little hot” about the delay because his co-stars John Witherspoon, Tommy Lister Jr. and Anthony 'AJ' Johnson had died. "I'm like, 'Man, we keep losing people, and y'all keep d**king around, not doing the movie the way it needed to be done,'" he added. "They wanna do it, but the key is, it's got to be done right or we shouldn't f**k with it. So, they finally came to their senses, so hopefully we can get in the process of getting that movie made."
