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????

F Chris Tucker, that pile of runny **** was too good for Friday after it made his ******* career. As much as I loved him in the movie, his behavior after it made him a success made me boycott his ignorant ass.

First, i think this is great news. Second, if you didn't find parts 2 and 3 funny is because you do not get it. You got to have Day-day there too. If ya can get OG Triple OG back in this new one with Deebo would be awesome. Everyone in the show would be there and could have a great ending where everyone becomes friends smoking tweeds.. Please hur-rah on this new Friday.

Thanks

Chris, as much as I'd love to see you in anoher Friday movie, you're missing the big picture. This is the part you need to be fighting for my man. I've had you in this role long before Michael was gone my friend. http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2011/11/18/michael-jackson-biopic-in-works-who-should-play-king-pop/

The movie should be about the kids of Craig and Day-Day, teenagers who are just now experimenting with weed. Smokey is the weed man. Bring all of the characters together. Pinky, the white boy with the skateboard, Felicia, Ezell, Baby D, and Ms. Parker (when u gon let me f*** Ms. Parker?)Bring them all together and make one big movie. Call it Last Friday, like DeVo suggested.

F Chris Tucker...funny how "RELIGION" goes outta the frigg'n window ......WHEN YO AZZ IS BROKER THAN JOKER....lol.......
Have another Friday....with ALL the 3 movie casts EXCLUDING you know who!!!!!!! When Ice put his UNKNOWN azz on the map.....he totally DISSED him, not realizing that Cube was gonna fibd his nichè, in the film industry. To rub salt in the wound, i'd cast the SMOKEY character using SOMEONE ELSE......i love ALL the Friday movies, no matter how silly, crazy or outrageous.... they are made to just be FUNNY.....so just dont take yourself too seriuosly....just shut up and laugh!!!!!!!!
