Got any plans for 26 April 2020? No? Well, you have now because it could be the date that Last Friday is released, if Ice Cube has it his way that is. Dammmmmn.
Cube - real name O'Shea Jackson - said he would like to release the fourth instalment of the Friday franchise on the 25th anniversary of the first film.
Speaking to ESPN, the 50-year-old creator said: "We are pushing for it, we finished the script, we are getting notes from the studio and it's going back and forth. We're gonna get into pre-production and start hiring. It would be nice for this to come out on the 25th anniversary." He's damn right it would.
The topic was raised after Ice Cube tweeted on the 24th anniversary of the film asking fans whether they want the 'next chapter'.
To the 24 years that have flown since this came out, all I gotta say is... BYE, FELICIA

Friday follows the exploits of two pals, Craig (Ice Cube) and Smokey (Chris Tucker), who spend their days smoking weed after Craig is fired from his job.
Now the main question fans are asking is whether Chris Tucker will be making a comeback and reprise his role.
Initially he claimed to have no interest in joining the cast but since that he's explained that he would be interested if he felt it was appropriate, telling ESPN's The Plug: "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."
But did y'all convince Chris Tucker to do Smokey again..- •TOP•SHELF•FENTANYL• (@HiDisIsTweak) June 2, 2018
The first instalment made $28.2 million, off the back of a budget of just $3.5m. The sequel, titled Next Friday, cost more ($11 million) but pulled in considerably more than the original ($59.8 million).
But the project to make the trilogy, Friday After Next, was made for a little less than the sequel and only netted $33.5 million.
