Legendary Westcoast rapper turned actor Ice Cube has finally revealed what’s holding back sequels of the memorable stoner comedy franchise Friday.
Few hours ago Ice Cube lashed out at film production company Warner Bros. for holding back sequels of Friday and blaming them for hijacking the franchise as he tweeted
“#freefriday from the jaws of Warner Bros. who refuses to make more sequels. They have hi-jacked the happiness of the culture.”

Sources say WB owns the rights to the ‘Friday’ franchise, and the studio doesn’t seem interested in making any more sequels at the moment. The OG “Friday” was released in 1995, followed by 2000’s “Next Friday” and 2002’s “Friday After Next.” Cube feels like the ‘Friday’ franchise is his art, and if WB doesn’t want to make more movies they should give him the rights so he can.
