With the passing of Pops (John Witherspoon) rapper/actor and creator of the Friday franchise Ice Cube has said via Twitter that New Line Studio is dragging its feet when it comes to the final installment in the popular Friday movie series. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that the passing of big-screen funnyman John Witherspoon, who played Ice Cube’s dad in the movie series might be at the center of the issue.
John Witherspoon, 77, died at home of a heart attack and Ice Cube refuses to use any type of CGI technology to have Pops in the final Friday movie.
The latest discussion opened up when fan Taylor Brazzell, @liltee12393, tweeted to Ice Cube: “Are we still getting Friday or is that canceled now because John Witherspoon passed?”
Ice Cube then replied on Dec. 22:
