Though it’s bee, fourscore and fifty-leven years since fans first got excited over the prospects of a fourth installment of the beloved “Friday” franchise starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker—it looks like there may finally be some upward movement.

If you remember, Cube and the studio haven’t had the best of relationship the last couple years with the “Good Day” rapper calling the Warner Bros. “weird” back in 2022 and blaming the sequel delay on them rejecting scripts and keeping them in development hell. Now, in a new interview on Flavor Flav’s Sirius XM show, “Flavor of the Week” show, Ice shared that the ball was officially rolling between the film and the studio.

“We finally got some traction with Warner Brothers. They have new leadership. My man Mike DeLuca, who used to be at New Line [Cinema] when I first started, when I first did the first Friday and Players Club and All About the Benjamins. Mike DeLuca was there, so now he’s running Warner Brothers,” Cube said. “Mike DeLuca was there right so now he’s running Warner Brothers and and him and my man Michael Gruber was like, ‘Yo, what the f**k is going on with Friday? Man, let’s get this shit back online.’”

Ice Cube is “Working” on another ‘Friday’ Movie

“I was a little hot ’cause they had took so long. Because John Witherspoon passed away, Tiny passed away, A.J. Johnson passed away. Man, we keep losing people. And y’all keep dicking around not doing the movie the way it need to be done. They want to do it. But the key is it gotta be done. So, they finally came to their senses.”

“Finally Friday,” here we come! (P.S. if y’all use that name, I’d at least like to ger some sort of writing credit. Or at the very, very minimum a cameo? Think about it!)
