It’s fitting this news comes out on a Friday. John Witherspoon, the actor who played Ice Cube’s father in the Friday franchise, recently revealed that Ice Cube is making a new Friday film.
The 75-year-old dropped the shocking news following an interview with Power 95.3. You can check out the video above, and read his quote below…
“Cube said they’re going to do another Friday. He said he wanted to meet with me this week, but he couldn’t make it, but we’re going to meet next week and get things together.”
It’s been 15 years since Friday After Next was released, and 22 years since the original Friday film was released. You’ll remember a while back there was a report claiming Ice Cube was planning on making another film in the series, and it was going to be titled Last Friday.
This announcement from Witherspoon seems to confirm that report. We don’t know if they’re still working with that same title, but that’s not important.
What is important is that Cube is bringing back Friday, and we’re going to celebrate this news by enjoying the f**k out of what’s left of this beautiful Friday afternoon.
