Ice Cube has confirmed that he is in the process of writing the script for the fourth Friday movie. The film has recently gained some attention after actor Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, revealed the franchise’s plans to release another installment of the comedy movie.
During a recent interview, Collider inquired about the progress of the new Friday film, Ice Cube answered: “There’s a lot of movement. I’m writing the script right now, so we worked out a deal with New Line. The ball is rolling. We invited everybody back and we’ll have a fun movie.”
Last year November, Lister mentioned to TMZ that Chris Tucker would be reprising his role as Smokey in the film.
“There’s a lot of conversation that’s hopefully going down next week with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker about doing one more Friday”, said Lister. ”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.”
When Cube was asked if Tucker would return to the movie series, Cube said, “I hope so.”
The original Friday grossed $27.9 million from a $3.5 million budget, giving birth to the comedy film franchise.
