Ice Cube recently sat down for a chat on ESPN’s The Jump, where he was asked about teasing the next installment of Friday on Instagram by writing, “To the 24 years that have flown since this came out, all I gotta say is… BYE, FELICIA. Do you want the next chapter??”

Cube addressed the upcoming film, stating, “We are pushing for it, we finished the script, we are getting notes from the studio and it’s going back and forth. Get into pre-production and start hiring. It would be nice for this to come out on the 25th anniversary. That would be kinda…” with The Jump host Rachel Nichols adding, “A good day.”

Chris Tucker also recently addressed questions of him appearing in the film, telling ESPN’s The Plug, “I don’t know. I talked to [Ice] Cube about it. He told me he was working on some stuff. And if it comes together right, I’m definitely gonna look at it and see if it works. ‘Cause I never say never; I definitely want to check it out. If it works, it’s a possibility.”
