Ice Cube is a phenomenon who is largely known for his dedication to his work. Fans must have noticed Ice Cube working hard to release Friday’s sequel. But Warner Bros. reportedly rejected the new “Friday” script, according to Ice Cube.
For a fourth Friday movie, Ice Cube claimed that he submitted two scripts, both of which Warner Brothers rejected. During a recent appearance on Drink Champs, which was captured during LL Cool J’s Rock The Bells, Cube described what went wrong.
“I’m trying to get it out of Warner Brothers, they don’t believe in the culture man. I had two scripts. I wrote one; it was the shit. They was like, ‘Yo, we don’t want Craig and Day-Day in jail, ’cause Craig and Day-Day went to jail for selling weed before it was legal!”
“Then after they rejected it they had all these fucking movies about going to jail: Orange Is The New Black … Get Hard. So then I wrote another script, and the script was really about … the youngsters in the hood having beef with the OG’s in the hood and Craig has to come back and squash that because Smokey’s son is the new Deebo and he’s wylin! They tripped on it man, they fucked around and then John Witherspoon passed. Then Deebo passed … they just fucked it up.”
The series “definitely needs to continue,” according to LL Cool J. In 1995, the first Friday movie came out. In 2000 and 2002, respectively, the sequels Next Friday and Friday After Next was released.
