Ice Cube and John Witherspoon have both confirmed that there will be a fourth installation of the Friday film franchise and a first since 2002.

Chris Tucker remains on the fence about returning as Smokey.

“I don’t know if we can do another one," Tucker said. "I don’t know if I could do another one because I was so young and it was a moment in time. But, we’ll see.”

In a recently unearthed video from a few years ago, Witherspoon mocks Tucker for holding up the reboot and says they'd be fine without his fat ass.

"He's the holdup," Witherspoon said of Tucker. "They say he wants more money. They say he wants another script. I say don't put him in there at all. And that they still do it without Chris Tucker. Because he doesn't look the same, anyway. Oh no. He gained about 150 pounds. He's Crispy Tucker."

Do you think a Friday reboot without Smokey would work?
