Barbershop 3 didn't seem like a necessary addition to the world until this casting decision. Nicki Minaj will co-star in the film with Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer, Variety reports. She'll play Draya, a "sassy" new hairdresser who works in the barbershop's beauty shop. 

The Barbershop series has been dormant for more than 10 years. The original came out in 2002, with the sequel released two years later. Fellow rappers Common and Eve will join the cast for the threequel, and Deadline reports Anthony Anderson and Regina Hall are onboard as well.

UPDATE 5/7/15: It was just announced that the film will be released on February 16, 2016.
