For those of you waiting for the next ‘Friday’ installment, you’re going to be waiting even longer.
Ice Cube says he has to completely re-write the treatment now that John Witherspoon passed away because the production company took too long to greenlight ‘Last Friday.’
…when we got Cube Friday at LAX, we asked if he’d ever considered using CGI in the film — since Carrie Fisher’s fam was okay with a Princess Leia CGI in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” — and he could not have been clearer.
“Last Friday” is the fourth and final installment of the ‘Friday’ franchise that kicked off in 1995. It’s been about 18 years since the last ‘Friday’ film, and Cube says, “It’s all on New Line, man.” He’s especially pissed cause, if New Line Cinema didn’t take its sweet time, they easily would’ve been able to put Witherspoon in the flick.
Back in May, Cube revealed he wanted to release the film on April 26, 2020 … but that’s clearly not happening now … if ever.
If you ask us, the entire ‘Last Friday’ treatment should be centered around Mr. Jones’ funeral with everyone from the past films returning to the house to pay their respects.
Back to the drawing board since New Line Cinema was slow on green lighting the LAST FRIDAY script that was full of Mr. Jones. I’ve been pissed off about it since Spoon passed away. https://t.co/wsWhPlIWQn
