Over the years, Ice Cube has been famously at odds with movie executives over bringing another installment of Friday to push forward the popular franchise. Recently, a social media user created a firestorm on Twitter with a fake report about a forthcoming movie production.

For years, Warner Bros Studios blamed Ice Cube and vice versa for failed attempts at negotiations. Additionally, with John Witherspoon’s death, fans were under the impression that the possibility of receiving a new Friday film was no more. However, a random person sent fans in a state of frenzy after posting, “A ‘Friday’ prequel is in the works for HBO max. Comedian druski and rapper Vince Staples are attached the lead roles.” 

The message was posted with photos of both entertainers, and it was shared far and wide. It received tens of thousands of likes and retweets. The user returned to offer another update about Cube’s son being tied to the film. He shared, “O’Shea Jackson Jr. the writer of the script says the Movie will go into production this sometime summer.”

It soon caught Ice Cube’s attention. The actor blasted the fake report by retweeting the post. He wrote “This is blasphemy” in a response to the claims. Like many other fake news reports, it quickly became the talk of Hip Hop.

Meanwhile, you can check out the posts and some more reactions from fans below. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more celeb updates.
