Ice Cube Says John Witherspoon Won’t Be CGI’d Into Last Friday

Since the unexpected death of John Witherspoon, Ice Cube has reportedly had to re-think the next installment of the Friday franchise. TMZ caught up with the rapper-turned-actor recently and asked him whether or not they would include a CGI-version of John in the film.

According to the entertainment news outlet, the rapper suggested there was a problem with New Line Cinema, the production company, due to slowing the developmental phase of the film. As it was previously reported, John – who played Cube’s father in the series – passed away earlier this year.

As CGI becomes more sophisticated and efficient, additional studios have begun using it. In fact, Carrie Fisher was included in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker despite her death several years ago. For that reason, discussions revolving around CGI have only intensified.

TMZ asked Ice Cube whether he would consider including a CGI-Witherspoon in the film, and the rapper couldn’t have been more clear and succinct. 

Regarding the film’s release, Ice Cube stated, “it’s all on New Line, man.” At the moment, it’s unclear whether the new Friday movie will be coming out anytime soon.

Ice Cube is reportedly not happy with New Line Cinema due to thwarting the movie’s production and release.

John Witherspoon died in October of this year in his Sherman Oaks, California home, and TMZ reports that he had been suffering several heart-related illnesses before he finally passed away.

The death certificated noted his death as at 5:30 pm. In the dispatch audio, the dispatcher initially asked for rescue for a man losing consciousness, however, he later canceled it due to John dying.

Fans of John know he has been an entertainment industry figure for many years. Mr. Witherspoon is perhaps most famous, however, for his role in the Friday movies as well as The Boondocks, a cult-classic animated comedy show about a black family settling into a middle-class area.
