News - Ice Cube Says A Cast Member's Death Stopped Friday 4's Production

Ice Cube Says A Cast Member's Death Stopped Friday 4's Production

Though there hasn't been a new Friday movie since 2002's holiday-themed Friday After Next, Ice Cube has said that a fourth installment to the comedy series was planned for release until very recently. In an interview with Seth Meyers, the host mentions that the original Friday's 25th anniversary passed last week, and Ice Cube responds by noting that everything "was ready to go for the fourth Friday" before the 2019 death of actor and comedian John Witherspoon (Friday's Willie Jones) "threw us all back."

"We're still grieving over the loss of such a talented, special man," Ice Cube continues. "He wasn't just funny. Everybody saw his funny side, but he was also a serious, thoughtful guy."

Last year, Ice Cube was still hopeful that Last Friday--the fourth movie's working title--would be released in time for 2020 and the first film's 25th anniversary. Now, it seems far less certain when, and if, the movie will release. "Hopefully we'll figure it out," Ice Cube tells Meyers. "But for now, it's really on the back burner." Witherspoon portrayed Willie Jones, the father of Ice Cube's character Craig, and was a central character in each of the three Friday movies. "We feel like we all lost our pops, our grandpops, our uncle," Ice Cube says of the production's reaction to Witherspoon's death.
