Well, I guess everybody’s looking for a sure thing these days.
Recently, TMZ caught up with Tiny Lister, the actor who played the neighborhood bully in the Friday films. According to Lister, another Friday film could be in the works, but this time, the film’s breakout star, Chris Tucker, would reprise his role as Smokey.
Apparently, Tucker’s money been a little funny lately. He reportedly owes $11 million in back taxes to the IRS and his $6 million Florida mansion is in danger of foreclosure. During a stand-up show last month, Tucker joked about his situation, saying, “They calling you acting like you owe them the money personally! I don’t owe you s**t! This is between me and the company!”
So, could Tucker’s money woes bring him back to the role that made him a star? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. But if the other Friday sequels are any indication, Ice Cube is more than willing to cash in on the franchise.
What do you think? Should Ice Cube and Chris Tucker team up for another ‘Friday’ film?
