Ice Cube is famous for his lyrical ability and no-nonsense attitude when it counts. Before he was into making movies with family audiences in mind, Ice Cube broke into the rap scene with his radical rap group, N.W.A. That being said, Ice Cube still hasn’t given up on getting the rights for ‘Friday,’ but it seems he won’t be suing Warner Bros to get the rights either.
For those who do not know, Ice Cube starred in a comedy film called ‘Friday,’ which ended up making the rapper a massive star in Hollywood. In the years since its 1995 release, Ice Cube has tried to acquire the rights to the film.
While speaking to TMZ, Ice Cube was asked about his struggle to own “Friday” and about any potential spin-off opportunities for the franchise. Cube made it clear he can’t make spinoffs and added that he will not be suing Warner Bros to get the rights either.
[When asked if ‘Friday’ was a lost cause] No, never. Warner Bros should let it go. No, no I ain’t gonna sue anybody.
Ice Cube’s battle to get the rights to the film has been a long and arduous one. Several original cast members like Tommy Lister Jr. and Anthony Johnson have passed away and Cube even shot down the suggestion from Mike Tyson to buy his own rights back. We’ll have to see if Ice Cube will ever get the rights to the film.
