Ice Cube Thinks A ‘Friday’ Series On Netflix Would Be Tough

Smokey: Why don't you tell your daddy to comb his damn hair, look like some spiders is having a meetin' on his head.

Ice Cube is making the rounds promoting his latest film, ‘Fist Fight.’ During the Tampa, tour stop Monkeys Fighting Robots got a chance to talk with the actor about the evolution of comedy over the past 25 years, and the future of the ‘Friday’ film franchise.

“I think it’s the universal themes that are never said sometimes are the funniest. Those things that we all go through but we don’t talk to each other about, but when you see them up on the screen they make you laugh. So, it’s really finding those moments that we all have in common that we don’t even know yet,” said Cube.

When it comes to ‘Friday’ it doesn’t look like fans will get a sitcom of the film on Netflix anytime soon.

“I know these characters, people love them, they would love to see them. But to be able to pull off that quality of comedy weekend and week out would be tough,” said Cube.

The first ‘Friday’ was made on a budget of $3.5 million and grossed $27 million back in 1995. Ice Cube has been a solid box office draw averaging $50 million per film since 1991. ‘Fist Fight’ hits theaters on February 17.
