Ice Cube Claims Warner Bros. Refuses To Make Any More ‘Friday’ Films.
Over the weekend, cube took to Instagram and alleged that Warner Bros. will not be continuing the Friday film franchise.
“#freefriday from the jaws of Warner Bros. who refuses to form more sequels,” he wrote alongside a cartoon of the film’s cast. “They have hi-jacked the happiness of the culture.”
Friday marked Ice Cube’s screenwriting debut in 1995 and followed the story of Craig, played by cube , and Smokey, played by Chris Tucker, as they spend the day indulging in some paraphernalia after Craig is fired from his job. The day becomes more momentous than expected because the pair encounters the neighborhood bully, an angry pusher and a slew of other interesting characters.
The rapper’s post on Instagram recently falls under a series of teases remodeled the last decade regarding followups of the 1995 Friday and its two subsequent films, Next Friday released in 2000 and Friday After Next in 2002.
Back in 2019, cube appeared on ESPN’s The Jump and mentioned that the fourth script of the film was actually finished which he’s pushing for its release. Unfortunately, this didn’t seem to pan out, further perpetuating cube to seek out other avenues to urge the film produced. His frustration with the Warner Bros. studios has only grown, supposedly thanks to the very fact that they need refused to release the rights to cube .
Ice Cube later discussed how “the 2019 death of Witherspoon , who played Willie “Pops” Jones within the franchise” has impacted the script and storyline. “I’ve been annoyed about it since Spoon gave up the ghost ,” Jackson said.
