It’s been two years since Ice Cube confirmed that production for the last installment of the Friday franchise was happening. And after practically months and months of silence, the multihyphenate star shared a potential release date for the long-awaited movie.
According to Cube, the Last Friday film could get here sooner than you think. Cube said he hopes to drop the last flick on the original film’s 25th anniversary, which would be April 26, 2020.
“We are pushing for it, we finished the script, we are getting notes from the studio and it’s going back and forth,” Cube said during a recent episode of ESPN’s The Jump. “Get into pre-production and start hiring. It would be nice for this to come out on the 25th anniversary.”
Cube’s statement arrives only days after he celebrated the 24th anniversary of the first Friday movie on Instagram. “To the 24 years that have flown since this came out, all I gotta say is… BYE, FELICIA Do you want the next chapter,” he said, teasing the final installment.
Hopefully, everything pans out and fans can expect Last Friday to hit theaters by 2020. In the meantime, check out Ice Cube’s full comments below.
