Ice Cube Shoots Down Rumors His Son Will Star In ‘Friday’ Reboot, BUT ‘Last Friday’ May Happen

Ice Cube x Oshea

Over the weekend, rumors started circulating that Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., would reprise his father’s role in a remake of his 90s classic, Friday, alongside comedian DC Young Fly.

Because of both young actors’ resemblance to the original characters, memes suggesting the remake should happen have been circulating since O’Shea was introduced to the masses in last summer’s Straight Outta Compton. However, they seemed to become a reality when what appeared to be O’Shea’s official Facebook page posted this weekend that it was happening.

With nearly 775k likes, the page seemed like it was legit, but papa Ice Cube is here to let you know – it’s not happening. Taking to Twitter with a screenshot of the FB post, Cube wrote:

“This is fake. My son doesn’t have a Facebook account. Can’t mess with a classic.”

There’s some hope for fans of the classic film series, though! Following that tweet, Cube revealed that he’d had a meeting with New Line Cinema, and he may reprise his own role for the final installment in the series, Last Friday.

That would be LIT! The original Friday came out in 1995, while its first sequel, Next Friday, was released 5 years later in 2000, and the last, Friday After Next, in 2002. I’m here for the final installment 15 years later in 2017!
