For a while, we have been hearing of a possible final installment to the popular “Friday” franchise. On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Ice Cube revealed that production was officially underway.
According to hiphopdx.com, “We’re working on one right now,” Cube said, “We’re gonna call it Last Friday.”
Cube, who created the first Friday in 1995, will have a hand in co-writing the script for the final installment. It also seems that Mike Epps, who appeared as Day- Day in the last two “Friday” movies, will appear in some capacity. There is no word yet on if Chris Tucker will reprise his role as Smokey from the first movie this time around, but if this really is the final movie, as the title Last Friday implies, it would seem like a good time to bring him back.
Last Friday follows the O.G. version’s subsequent sequels, 2000’s Next Friday and 2002’s Friday After Next. His co-star John Witherspoon, who played Cube’s father (Mr. Jones) in the first two installments, broke the news about a fourth movie last month. However, Cube had been quiet about it until his appearance on the talk show.
