In the last twenty four hours, the internet has been abuzz with rumors of another Friday sequel. The hoopla all started a few days ago with an Ice Cube(Anaconda) appearance on a small hip hop radio talk show. Like most average suburban white guys, I thought the first Friday was amusing at times, so I listened to a rebroadcast of the on air chit chat. So what did I find? Nothing. Nothing at all.
The fifteen minute discussion consisted of Ice Cube and Angie Martinez “waxing intellectual” about the rapper’s new film. Eventually, Friday came up, and Cube confirmed his desire to make a sequel. This juicy bit of info is neither interesting nor exciting. What’s his alternative a third Are We There Yet?? The actor went on to say that he wanted Chris Tucker to come back, but that New Line didn’t want to “write the check.” Tucker has done one movie in seven years! His return would cost a fortune. If you were an executive would you rather have the comedian or at least ten million Wendy’s Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers?
Ice Cube then went on a mini rant about New Line, accusing them of being focused on “Lord Of The Rings money.” So? Isn’t every studio’s goal to make money? In a desperate attempt to shove his foot further into his ass, Cube went on to chastise New Line for their interest in winning Oscars. Are you serious, Ice? That’s probably the most asinine comment I have ever heard.
Will we see a fourth ‘Friday?’ Maybe, but I’m certainly not convinced by this interview. To listen to the radio show for yourself, visit Ain’t It Cool News and click on the link.
