Ice cube throws out the Notion Of CGI John Witherspoon For 'Last Friday'

And he's not happy with New Line Cinema.

Ice cube has zero interest in the use of a CGI version of the late John Witherspoon for the fourth film of the Friday franchise.

Computer-generated images of dead actors has become commonplace in Hollywood cinema, including the controversial "casting" of a CGI James Dean in the upcoming Vietnam War drama to Find Jack. But when TMZ asked Cube if Witherspoon could show the expected Last Friday of film through technology, the veteran MC scoffed at the idea..centered-ad {

"No, never," he responded before criticizing New Line Cinema for taking too long to greenlight the film.

Before his brief conversation with the TMZ paparazzo is irrelevant, Cube shared his frustrations with New Line Cinema — the production studio behind the Friday franchise — via Twitter. The respected rapper/actor he pointed out that you have to rewrite the script for Last Friday, since Witherspoon's character of Willie Jones was an important part of the script.
