There’s no denying the fact that Friday is a beloved film. It’s so beloved that fans were given Next Friday (2000) and Friday After Next (2002) to continue the story of Craig Jones’ life in South Central L.A.
Fifteen years since the last rendition of Friday, Ice Cube announced that another one is in the works.
While on the The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday, the actor/producer broke the news. “We’re working on one right now,” he said when responding to the question if another one would be made.
“We’re going to call it Last Friday.”
The original film produced by F. Gary Gray was a hit grossing $27.9 million, succeeding its budget multiple times over. It starred comedians Bernie Mack, John Witherspoon, Chris Tucker and Faizon Love.
But what we’re truly curious about is if Tucker, who was rumored to have issues with production, will come back to play Smokey— and who else will be cast for the film.
We’ll report as more details come in.
