The Last Instalment of Friday Would Not Include A CGI-version of John Witherspoon, says Ice Cube



The surprising death of John Witherspoon has resulted in Ice Cube being compelled to re-structure the forthcoming instalment of the Friday franchise. Ice Cube Says John Witherspoon Won’t Be CGI’d Into Last Friday. The tabloid news website TMZ recently reached the rapper-turned-actor and enquired as to whether they would be including a CGI-version of John in the film.

The entertainment news outlet reported that owing to the slackening of the developmental phase of the film, there was an issue with the production company, New Line Cinema. As reported earlier, John, who played the role of Cube’s father in the series, passed away this year itself.

Following the increase in the sophistication and efficiency of the CGI, additional studios have started using it. In spite of her death several years ago, Carrie Fisher was very much included in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. Due to this reason, there has been a heightening of the discussions pertaining to CGI.

Ice Cube was enquired by TMZ whether he would be considering to include CGI-Witherspoon in the film. The rapper replied to the same in a very concise way. Cube’s response has been uploaded on YouTube.

Ice Cube asserted regarding the film’s release, “It’s all on New Line, man.” Presently, it is quite doubtful whether the new Friday film will be releasing anytime soon.

Ever since the disruptions in the movie’s production and release, Ice Cube is considerably unhappy with the New Line Cinema.

As reported by TMZ, John Witherspoon died this year in October in his California home named Sherman Oaks. He had been suffering for a prolonged period with several heart-related issues.

His death certificate quoted the time of his death as 5:30 pm. The dispatcher, in the beginning, asked in the dispatch audio for the rescue of a man becoming unconscious. However, he sought to cancel it later following John’s death.

For several years, fans of John are well acquainted with his name being counted as a prominent figure in the entertainment industry. Mr. Witherspoon, however, is most popular for his memorable role in the Friday movies and The Boondocks, a cult-classic animated comedy show revolving around the settling of a black family into a middle class area.
