The tug of war between Ice Cube and Warner Brothers over the Friday franchise continues. Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported, “Ice Cube wants Warner Bros to surrender its rights to the ‘Friday’ property Warner Bros. replied saying it won’t release rights to the valuable franchise or any other Ice Cube movies.” Cube and Warner started developing the fourth movie in the franchise, Last Friday, back in 2012. Sources said that Warner had a problem with the script’s first draft because it was set in prison. Warner didn’t think prison was funny. In letters written to Warner Brothers, Ice Cube and his team allegedly accused the studio of discrimination by not properly funding any of his movies. Warner disputes those claims.
