The 1995 comedy Friday launched the acting career of Chris Tucker, where he played the hilarious drug dealer Smokey alongside Ice Cube. Tommy Lister, who played Deebo in Friday, reveals both Ice Cube and Chris Tucker are hatching plans for a new Friday sequel. Here's what Tommy Lister had to say about this new project below.
Ice Cube and Chris Tucker are planning a Friday sequel
"There's a lot of conversation, that's hopefully going down next week with Ice Cube
and Chris Tucker
about doing one more Friday
. This is going to be the big one. We talked on the phone a couple of weeks ago, and I'm going on Chris
' private jet to do something in St. Louis, where I chase Chris
on the stage."
Ice Cube wrote the original Friday, along with DJ Pooh, but it isn't known who is writing this untitled sequel. Friday, which grossed $27.9 million from a $3.5 million budget, spawned the sequels Next Friday and The Friday After Next, although Chris Tucker did not star in those follow-ups.
Friday was released April 26th, 1995 and stars Ice Cube, Chris Tucker, Nia Long, Tommy Lister, John Witherspoon, Anna Maria Horsford, Regina King, Paula Jai Parker. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray.
