Ice Cube. Chris Tucker on 'Friday' setChris Tucker, O’Shea ‘Ice Cube’ Jackson and fans of the ‘Friday’ films franchise may all have different ideas of the word “confirmed.”

While rumors have been swirling that Tucker would reprise his iconic role as ‘Smokey’ in the movie tentatively titled, ‘Next Friday,’ the born-again Christian comic quickly inserted some doubt into the equation in an interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show:

“I don’t know. I talked to Ice Cube, because it’s such a big rumor and people get mad if you say you ain’t doing something so I’m real careful. Me and Cube, we’re talkin’ about it. They’re workin’ on a script,” said Tucker. “I don’t think it’ll be as special as the first one.”

When co-host J. Anthony Brown asked him about the rumor that he didn’t return to previous ‘Friday’ movies because he had grown to be too big of a star, he artfully dodged that question by saying that he had simply moved on to more diverse roles, in films such as Money Talks, The Fifth Element, Dead Presidents, and others. Tucker said his career goal at that point was not to be “put in that box.” He further stated that he was smart at that time in his career and needed to go back to that, reiterating his stance on appearing in the ‘Last Friday’ movie:

“We’ll see what happens, but I doubt it. … I don’t know if we can find that magic again.”

Though various media outlets have jumped the gun, posting recent pictures Cube and Tucker together as confirmation that ‘Smokey’ had officially been released from rehab, Cube also said that he didn’t know why Tucker was so hesitant about returning and he was attempting to make the script too good for him to pass up.

Whether Tucker returns, or not, Cube promises he has some up and coming comedians under his wing and that the movie is going to be hilarious.
