While it's been one of the most talked about subjects regarding Ice Cube as of late, it appears as if answers regarding the Friday film franchise may soon be on the horizon.

With a cult classic under his belt in the form of the first Friday movie, the comedy franchise, which features three movies total, has been such a success that fans are desperately seeking another instalment. While the last movie of the trilogy was 2002's Friday After Next, which not only featured Cube and Mike Epps but also an up and coming actor - who isn't so up and coming any more - by the name of Terry Crews, it's still a hot topic amongst film fans.

Giving fans a bit of hope, Ice Cube's recent Twitter exchange with Mike Epps suggests that there is a deal being put in place for a fourth movie. [As always] It all depends on Chris Tucker.

Chris Tucker 'doubts' he'll do new 'Friday' film: 'I don't know if we can find that magic again' [Video]

Ever since Chris Tucker stole the show with his hilarious turn as Smokey in the original Friday almost 20 years ago, fans have been clamoring for him to return to the franchise. They were given a glint of hope when Ice Cube confirmed that a fourth and final installment was in the works and that he wanted Tucker involved; and were practically sent into a tizzy when a poster with Tucker's face and a release date for the film suddenly appeared and made its rounds around the Facebook world and Twitterverse.

Unfortunately, those fans were disappointed when that poster was proven bogus, and, during his recent chat with The Tom Joyner Morning Show, Tucker practically kicked said fans while they were down by basically saying that the chances of him reprising his classic role of the backwards-hustling pothead are very slim.
