Since the unexpected death of John Witherspoon, Ice Cube should have rethought the next episode of the franchise on Friday. TMZ recently met the rapper-turned-actor and asked him whether or not they would include a CGI version of John in the film.
According to the entertainment media, the rapper suggested that there was a problem with New Line Cinema, the production company, due to the slowing of the development phase of the film. As previously reported, John – who played Cube’s father on the series – died earlier this year.
As CGI becomes more sophisticated and efficient, other studios have started using it. In fact, Carrie Fisher was included in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker despite her death several years ago. For this reason, discussions around CGI have only intensified.
TMZ asked Ice Cube if he would consider including a CGI-Witherspoon in the film, and the rapper couldn’t have been more clear and succinct. You can check out Cube’s response in the video below:

Regarding the film’s release, Ice Cube said, “It’s all on New Line, man.” At the moment, it’s unclear whether the new Friday movie will be released soon.
Ice Cube would not be satisfied with New Line Cinema due to the production and release of the film.
Let’s go back to the drawing board since New Line Cinema was slow to light the LAST FRIDAY script which was full of Mr. Jones. I’ve been upset since Spoon passed away. https://t.co/wsWhPlIWQn

John Witherspoon died in October this year at his home in Sherman Oaks, California, and TMZ reports that he suffered from several heart conditions before finally dying.
The certified death noted his death at 5.30 p.m. In the audio of the shipment, the dispatcher first requested the rescue of a man who lost consciousness, but then canceled it due to the death of John.
John’s fans know that he has been a figure in the entertainment industry for many years. Mr. Witherspoon is perhaps most famous, however, for his role in Friday movies as well as The Boondocks, a cult animated comedy show about a black family settling in a middle class area.
