Ice Cube has spoken out about the next and final movie in the “Friday” series saying it will get made whether Chris Tucker is involved or not.
Rapper Ice Cube told the HuffPost recently his upcoming movie projects involving NWA and the Friday series.
While discussing the Friday movies, Ice Cube addressed comments Chris Tucker made about “doubts” that the “magic” will still be there. Huff Post asked:
Fans are also anticipating the next and final installment of the “Friday” franchise. And earlier this year Chris Tucker admitted that he has “doubts” about the magic still being there. What are your thoughts?
Well, my magic is still here so the movie is going to get done. The movie is going to be funny, and it’s going to live up to all the long-anticipated wait. I would hope that he’ll be a part of it. He’s more than welcome to be a part of it … It’s a trip, because you’re looking and somebody says that “the magic is not even there” who’s never even tried it.
We put the first one together and we can put another one together. So he should really trust that, and do what his fans want him to do. You should never out grow your fans. And if the fans want him to do this movie, that’s what we’re in this for, then that’s what he should do.
Cube added that “One person isn’t going to stop the show.” Guess that’s a nice way of saying Chris can be replaced…if he doesn’t act right.
He also talked about an upcoming movie he’s producing about NWA and who he wants to play him. Here are the highlights:
Who do you want to portray Ice Cube?
My son, O’Shea. He looks like me, and he can rhyme. He knows Ice Cube better than any actor, and I think he can do it. So we’re going to have him audition and hopefully he’ll show that he has the skills.
