O’Shea Jackson Sr., better known as rapper Ice Cube, confirmed there’ll be a fourth installment of his Friday film series on The Late Late Show with James Corden this week.
“We’re working on one right now,” Jackson said. “We’re gonna call it Last Friday.”
It was back in 1995 when Jackson wrote the initial Friday movie with the help of DJ Pooh, grossing a Box office revenue of approximately $27 million compared to a budget around $3 million, according to boxofficemojo.
Since then, Jackson has gone on to write two more follow ups in the Friday series. The three movies combined totaled a Box office revenue of just over $121 million compared to just over a $24 million budget.
Additionally, Jackson went on to write The Players Club, and All About The Benjamins, both grossing a Box office revenue of at least $10 million over their respective budgets.
2002 was when the last Friday movie was released, and fans have been waiting for this announcement ever since. In fact, John Witherspoon, comedian and actor best known as Willie Jones in the Friday series, said on Power 95.3 studio last month that Jackson told him Warner Bros, American entertainment company, film studio and film distributor, approved the sequel as early as April.
While there’s no timeline on the fourth installment, we hope Smokey, portrayed by Chris Tucker, will make a return especially if it’s decided this will be the last Friday. The announcement alone has us ready to binge-watch the film series in its entirety.
“I know you don’t smoke weed, I know this,” Smokey said. “But, I’m gonna get you high today, ’cause it’s Friday. You ain’t got no job, and you ain’t got s*** to do.”
Stay tuned for more updates.
