For year's there has been talk that a new Friday movie was on the horizon, but fans have only received speculation and gossip. However, there seems to be movement on the project as Ice Cube confirmed that the latest addition to the franchise is underway. During his visit to ESPN's The Jump, Cube stated that they're getting things going and it's his hope that the movie will be completed by this time next year.

"Yeah, we pushing for it. We finished the script, we are getting notes from the studio and it's going back and forth," Cube said. "Get into pre-production and start hiring. It would be nice for this to come out on the 25th anniversary. That would be kinda...good." Host Rachel Nichols helped him out and finished it off with, "A good day." Cube appreciated that one.

The real question is: will Chris Tucker return to reprise his iconic role of Smokey? The answer is still "maybe." Tucker has previously stated that it's something he would consider, but he wants to make sure that it's done the right way. "I don't know. I talked to Cube about it," he said on ESPN's The Plug. "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."

They better bring back Deebo. Are you excited for another Friday film?
