Although Tucker's return to the series has yet to be confirmed, Cube says that his former co-star seems to be on board.
"I'm still writing [the screenplay]. I'm still in the process, I'm deep into it...[the title is] Last Friday," he noted. "I want [Chris Tucker] to be in it. He's given us every indication that he's gonna be in it. Until he shows up on set, you never know. That's really how it goes."
Cube is also reportedly developing a vigilante drama series titled "Eye For an Eye" for FX. He will also appear in the Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum comedy 21 Jump Street in theaters this weekend.
