Chris Tucker Isn't Interested In 4th 'Friday' Movie; Shooting International Concert Movie Akin To 'Raw'

Friday

The series that only got progressively worse with each sequel, is probably about to continue that trend with a 4th film. In my humble opinion, the first film in the franchise (Friday) was good and filling as is; no sequels were necessary. But you know how it goes over there out west, and the perplexing decisions they sometimes make.

Anyway... as you already know, Ice Cube has long been talking about another installment of the Friday franchise, with New Line Cinema backing it; and as recently as last month, Cube had reportedly locked Chris Tucker into returning to reprise his role in the first film.

Tucker was said to be in talks to reprise his role as well, with Cube possibly in the director's chair.

Skip ahead to last week when, in an interview with Tom Joyner, Tucker, who's currently on tour, didn't seem too keen on doing another Friday movie.

Apparently, Cube is definitely working on the script right now, as Tucker states, however, he added:

“I don’t know. … Me and Cube, we’re talkin’ about it. They’re workin’ on a script... I don’t think it’ll be as special as the first one... We’ll see what happens, but I doubt it. … I don’t know if we can find that magic again."

The full interview can be watched/heard HERE; in it, he expresses his love for the first movie, and seems genuinely content with what they accomplished back then, and not all that interested in potentially spoiling it all with a 4th film that doesn't match expectations.

Collectively, the first 3 Friday movies, released in 19952000 and 2002 respectively, grossed over $121 million worldwide; per Rotten Tomatoes, as I already noted, the first film was the only title in the franchise to be well-received critically. The last 2 were rated decisively "Rotten."

What exactly the plot for Friday #4 will be is anyone's guess right now.

Up next, catch Tucker in David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook.
