As a big "Friday" fan, I was a little upset to hear Chris Tucker say "he doubts he will return for the final 'Friday' film. Chris was recently on the Tom Joyner Morning Show and had this to say:
"I don’t know. I talked to Ice Cube – because it’s such a big rumor. Me and
Cube, we’re talking about it and they’re working on a script. If it comes back,
I don’t think it will be as special as the first one. "
"When they were
doing the ‘Next Fridays,’ I was doing ‘Money Talks.’ I always wanted to keep
going, next level and all that stuff so I wouldn’t be in a box. After that
we did all the ‘Rush Hours,’ and ‘Fifth Element,’ ‘Dead Presidents.’ That’s what
happened. I was already doing another movie when they said that [more 'Friday'
movies were being made]. I was like, ‘What? I did that already.'"
"We’ll see what happens, but I doubt it. I doubt it."
We all know there were rumors going back and forth that Chris was officially in on the project but, taking from the horses mouth, it looks like that wont be the case. Check out audio of the entire interview below. Damn Smokey!
