Because everything great from the '90s must live again to nourish millennials' insatiable appetite for nostalgia, there's been talk of another Friday sequel since at least as far back as 2011

Ice Cube tweeted out a major update on that subject today, along with a piece of art depicting the cast of the original stoner comedy in a sort of "Last Supper" situation.

Apparently he's already talked to New Line Cinema about making Last Friday, but only if he "can do it right." For a lot of people, doing it "right" would require finding a way to bring comedian Chris Tucker back in to the fold.

In case you've forgotten, the Friday franchise is a trilogy as it currently stands. The first film, written by Ice Cube with DJ Pooh and directed by F. Gary Gray, came out in 1995 and was an instant classic, turning a tiny $3 million budget into $30 million at the box office.

The film's two sequels, Next Friday, which came out in 2000, and the horribly titledFriday After Next, which was released in 2002, were not classics by any means. Tucker was absent from both of those, while Mike Epps was added to the cast.

Yesterday, Cube used Twitter to let people know that the supposed Friday remake starring his son O'Shea Jackson Jr. that was making the rounds on Facebook was actually an internet hoax.

Cube has already starred in two films in 2016, Ride Along 2 and Barbershop: The Next Cut.
