Chris Tucker Confirmed For New ‘Friday’ Film

Ice Cube and Chris Tucker

Ice Cube got fans excited late last year, when he revealed that he was planning a new film in his classic Friday film series ... and was reaching out to all the original cast, including Chris Tucker.

At the time, things were in the planning stages. However, in March, Cube revealed that the develop of the fourth film was moving along, but there was one snag, Chris Tucker was still unconfirmed. The rapper said he and Tucker had conversations about him reprising the role of "Smokey," but he was not confirmed....

This week, AllHipHop.com posted a photo of Cube and Tucker together, reporting confirmation from the rap legend that Tucker is officially on-board and a new Friday film is in the works.

Fans have been waiting for years to see the pair reunite on screen, ever since they lit up the box office in the 1995 original. Since the first film, Tucker had been absent from its two sequels, 2000's Next Friday and 2002's Friday After Next.

Further details were unknown at press time. Stay tuned...
