Chris Tucker On Board For New Installment Of “Friday”

(AllHipHop News) Representatives for director/rapper ice Cube have confirmed that a new “Friday” is in the works with actor Chris Tucker.

TMZ.com spoke to a member of Ice Cube’s production company Cube Vision, who confirmed that the project was in the works.

“Absolutely yes the studio is in the process of getting the entire original cast to do another ‘Friday.’ [Ice Cube] is very excited about this and has every intention to make it happen,” the rep stated.

Ice Cube released the first of the three “Friday” franchise films in 1995.

The original “Friday,” which starred Chris Tucker, grossed a total of $28 million.

The sequel to the film, “Next Friday” was released in 2000 and starred Mike Epps. The film grossed over $59 million.

The last installment, “Friday After Next,” hit theaters in 2002 and grossed a total of $33 million at the box office.

In a previous interview with AllHipHop.com, Ice Cube stated that he would be willing to make a new installment of “Friday,” but the film had to have Chris Tucker in it.

“I want to deliver it, but I don’t want to deliver what you’ve seen already,” Ice Cube told AllHipHop.com in August of 2010. We gotta have Chris in it.”

According to sources, Chris Tucker has yet to sign an official contract binding him to the fourth installment of “Friday.”

    The headline reads …Chris Tucker On Board For New Installment Of “Friday”

    The first sentence says…

    Representatives for director/rapper ice Cube have confirmed that a new “Friday” is in the works with actor Chris Tucker.

    but the last sentence of the article says..

    According to sources, Chris Tucker has yet to sign an official contract binding him to the fourth installment of “Friday.”

    Did I miss something?

      What a stupid ass contradiction right? But don’t believe the hype.

  • mrphatfarm

    • therealest1

      I assume you’re talking about Chris Tucker regarding those last words in your statement right?

      • statement lol

      • mrphatfarm

        correct!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • them financial troubles will make you do alotta shit you dont want to

  • therealest1

    This article wreaks of literal hypocrisy and contradiction. The title states Chris Tucker is on board, but the final sentence states he has yet to sign a binding contract. So is he in it or not? I’m confused obviously.

  • chris tucker is the best acter i know< so what if he low on money he still that nigga like eddie is but welcome back smokey

  • therealest1

    Like I said before, if Chris Tucker really participates in the final installment of Friday, it was all about the money for him after all. He would be a hypocritical bitch for doing it because in 2000 he said he would spurn roles that were similar to Smokey or roles that had a lot of swearing in it because of God, religious reasons or not wanting to set a bad example for his son.

    He’s a bitch for saying something like that because its called acting or entertainment. Denzel Washington is a religious family man who attends church frequently, but he did a bad guy role and won an Academy Award for it, the highest premier honor. Sandra Bullock took a big pay cut to do The Blind Side, she only took $3 million upfront instead of her usual $12 million minimum per movie, she won an Academy Award as well.

    I said it before, Chris Tucker should have been a man and told the truth that it was all about the money all this time. The God, religious or not wanting to set a bad example was a terrible excuse, he really felt he wasn’t getting the money he wanted all those times he was offered roles. Its nothing wrong he felt the need to get as much money as he could because its a business and he had highly profitable movies to use as leverage to get paid, but he should have just been man enough to say they weren’t offering him enough money to do other movies. He wouldn’t have been construed as greedy because he had successful movies to go off on to negotiate high salaries. But the God, religion or not wanting to set a bad example excuse makes him look like a bitch for not being upfront and honest that he really wanted money.

    We all know he got Jewed on Friday with that low pay. I believe he only got $10,000 for it. So we can understand he wouldn’t want to return for the sequels based on that bad experience. But he shouldn’t have used that religion or setting a bad example excuse as his basis for spurning them when we all know he got Jewed on pay for the first one. He should have just been man enough to say Ice Cube didn’t pay him right, and he wouldn’t return based on that experience instead of using a bootleg ass cop out.

    He got spoiled after doing the Rush Hour movies since he made a lot of money from them and he became instilled with expectations of getting paid astronomically for every movie in the future. He basically forgot who he is, and where he came from. He’s a prime example of people being successful faster than they expected and lost track of reality by living only for tomorrow and not the foreseeable future. His head got big and he basically assumed he would keep getting offered $20 million minimum per movie with anything outside of the Rush Hour franchise. Like I said, look at Sandra Bullock, she took a pay cut and won an Oscar, and its not like she couldn’t buy anything with $3 million from The Blind Side.

    He assumed the offers of $20 million a movie would keep coming for him and became Hollywood and bougee. But since he didn’t step his acting game up, who’s going to be stupid enough to keep offering him lots of money to rehash the same character and act he’s been doing since 1995? I bet he feels stupid for not taking those previously offered roles for less money now that he needs it. Even if they were less money, some of those roles could have gave him credibility as an actor to keep getting paid and enhanced his resume. Its normal for actors and actresses to take pay cuts between movies, but some of those win them accolades, see Sandra Bullock.

    This guy is also another prime example of being too stupid not being able to live with only a few millions. If anyone can’t buy anything only a few million dollars, you’re beyond retarded to me. How much money do you really need to live comfortably? A few million should do it. But I guess this idiot had such a high standard of living that he felt the need to spurn those roles that paid less.

    If he reprises his role in the final Friday installment, we’ll all see what kind of greedy big headed hypocritical bitch he really was all these years who is now in need of money.

  • RickJamesSon

    how do you say someones on board when a contract hasnt even been signed? smh

  • NorthDollasTX

    now that he in need of some financial “get-back” the niggah wanna jump in the damn movie … off karma alone i hope MIKE EPPS is funnier than Chris Tucker simply because MIKE EPPS never forgot where he came from and never shitted on the man that gave him opportunity.  Yeah we know at the height of both comedians career EPPS pales in comparison but for remaining loyal he edges out TUCKER by a long shot.  Still happy to see Chris Tucker finally getting on-board so we can get what we all been waiting for since FRIDAY AFTER NEXT!

  • JC

    Chris Tucker, Mike Epps & Katt Williams?? All U Need Is Kevin Hart & It Will Be Too Damn Funny

    • Romia Blue

  • Seems a lot of cats dont know ice cube fucked chris tucker when it came to payin him for the 1st friday movie. Thats the reason chris didnt do the sequel bcuz he felt like cube was a shady ass nigga. Of course chris tucker is is doin this for the money, WOULDNT YOU???? But i personally feel like its too late, i think the movie will be wack bcuz these niggas is too old to be gettin in the type of dramma they get into in the friday movies. All them niggas is like in they 40’s. Will i go see it?? yeh, maybe….but only outta curiosity….maybe thas what they hoppin for tho….like, 5 years or so ago this would have been exciting news….

  • P.s. Kevin heart aint funny….NOT TO ME AT LEAST…He spose to be the “new nigga” after dave chappelle  was on top???? naw son…I  rather watch old episodes of the chappelle show over ANYTHING kevin heart do….Dnt be mad…#My opinion…

    • GGENERAL

      He’s definitely not Chappelle, more so, because their 2 different comedians. Their style is not even close enough to be comparing the two, those are 2 different target audiences. From the little bit of Kevin Hart that I’ve seen, he’s ok. I haven’t heard of anybody labeling him as the “new n***a”, especially since he’s been building his brand for a while now.

  • Kap Diva

    Please do it Mr. Chris Tucker for all of us fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not going to get my hopes up until I see the trailer. Smokey, we need you!

  • R_REAL_TALK
