MGM Wants To Reopen The Barbershop
Ice Cube in talks to star once again

Ice Cube In Barbershop

With Ice Cube enjoying big success with the likes of the Jump Street films and the more recent Ride Along, one of his older franchises is looking to reconnect like a distant Facebook page user endlessly hitting “Poke”. In this case, it’s MGM’s Barbershop, with the company looking to dust off the chairs for a third outing.

The original 2002 film, which found Cube as the South Side Chicago barber surrounded by friends, lovers and oddballs. It was successful enough to spawn not only a sequel in 2004’s Barbershop 2: Back In Business, but a spin-off in the Queen Latifah-centric Beauty Shop and a short-lived TV series.

Now, however, all involved are looking to get a new film out in the world, with Cube negotiating what is expected to be a hefty deal to once more star and produce. No plot details have been released – indeed, it’s not yet known who will write and/or direct the eventual film, but expect this one to be on our screens before too long.

For more from Ice Cube, check out our live podcast from a few weeks back, which featured lots of chat from the man himself.
