What we Know so Far About the Ice Cube "Friday"
Could Chris Tucker to make his long-awaited return?
It has been 16 years since we saw Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) attempt to recover his stolen rent money on Christmas Eve. Now, after many years of speculation, it seems that the fourth and final installment of the popular Friday franchise — titled Last Friday — is becoming a reality.

Although there have been many "confirmations" in the past few years, Epps made it official by posting a picture of himself, the Cube and comedian John Witherspoon on the set.
Details about the plot of the movie and the actors are scarce, with the official IMDB page is only listing of Cube and Epps as members of the cast. However, here is everything we know at this time, on the Last Friday.
We are going to work!!!!

It will be a gathering to some extent. In a 2017 episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Cube discussed the film's delay, citing problems in getting the higher-ups to cut the check for the movie. "It's a big one," he said, indicating specifically that the classics of the franchise as pillars Epps, Witherspoon, Chris Tucker, and Tiny Lister "I want a bigger check."
"All of them were unknown at the time," Cube said. "Now, they are household names."
In a recent interview with DJ Vlad, Witherspoon discussed the original Friday — noting that he and the other cast members were only paid $5,000 each of their functions — and talked about how the budget for a new one would be astronomical in comparison with the original, which cost only $2 million and took only 20 days for the film.
Unfortunately, it seems that one of the franchises most memorable characters, Chris Tucker's Smokey, it is likely that you do not appear in the film
