Chris Tucker & Ice Cube

In Talks for ANOTHER 'Friday'

... Says DeBo Actor

Chris Tucker's money problems could be the best thing to ever happen to his movie career ... because the actor has been in serious talks with Ice Cube about reprising his role as SMOKEYYYYY ... so says the guy who played DeBo in the "Friday" series.

Tiny Lister was chillin' last night outside Pueblo Viejo in Hollywood -- when the scariest man in Hollywood told us ... Tucker flew him out on his private jet recently to discuss the possibility of getting the ORIGINAL "Friday" crew back together.

FYI -- Tucker shot into superstardom playing pot-obsessed Smokey in the original "Friday" back in 1995 ... and then refused to appear in any of the sequels, citing religious reasons.

But now, Lister tells us ... Tucker and Cube have a big pow-wow set for next week to discuss a 4th "Friday" film ... adding, "This is gonna be the big one."

Lister told us he and Tucker also talked about doing a sequel to the 1997 hit, "The Fifth Element."

Sidenote -- Chris Tucker still has a private jet????

TMZ, you should have at least spelled the characters name correctly.It's Deebo. It only took me a few seconds to fact check that when naming my english mastiff after the character.

"His" private Jet? or was it just a one time lease? I knew a friend who owned a jet. It cost them $90K a month just in maintenance and fuel....Not to mention hanger fees, and the cost of the jet was about $17 Million (yes it was a small jet). Then there are landing fees and then you have to pay the pilots.... I m not sure if CHrist Tucker is really spending this kind of money to have the braggin rights of saying "I own a jet". Even A-listers lease the G-V's and Lears... And some even fly commercial and save $$$... Case and point, Whitney Houston.

DeVo    

I have thought about what the perfect name for this film would be for years if they ever make it. Chris and Ice, if you are reading...."Last Friday"

I thought they were going to produce a title called "Last Friday" a few years back..... Implying it would be the last FRIDAY movie made.... OH say it aint so !!! I Love the Friday franchises.... And Hope they bring back Baby Joker (Jacob Vargas) and of course gotta keep PINKY ( Nurrrga) and finally you gotta keep Money Mike !!!!

Aren't they all getting a little too old to still be doing 'Friday' movies? I mean, are they planning on showing Smokey and Craig with wives and children, working 40 hour a week jobs while DeBo still lurks around stealing bikes? Come on now.
