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????

What's with the Sony ad that takes over the whole site? Harvey, are that desperate that you need super-intrusive ads on your website to make ends meet or are you just that greedy? Really.I mean, really.

Does this mean Chris Tucker's gonna start cussing in films again, 'cause Friday 4 will be dead in the water if he tries to play the straight man!

The 90's were the best, and its been one big Downward Spiral since. Why even bother with it.

OMG...I can't wait. Hopefully they do it. The first Friday was sooo funny. The other ones sucked, so hopefully with the original crew they can pull it together for a super funny finale.

It doesn't matter about the characters.If DJ Pooh aka "Red"(the co-writter of the firs Friday)is not collaborating on this project,its another failure.

This is quite possibly the best news I've heard all day. The original Friday is the best! I even like part II but III sucked. But nothing could ever recapture the magic of Smokey & Craig. Classic.

Ice Cube is a punk if he takes Tucker back. Tucker turned his back on him after he made him. I've met Tucker and his brother Daryl, those guys Especially his brother are a bunch of S#!tbags.
