In 2020, there will be a tour with Whitney Houston in CGI form, but Ice Cube says no technology of that sort will be used for the next “Friday” film. Ice Cube dismisses rumors of a CGI version of the late John Witherspoon for the Friday franchise’s fourth film.
Computer-generated imagery of dead actors has been a new way of using legendary actors who have passed away in Hollywood. The technology of Will Smith in combat with his younger self has shown how the de-aging technology has advanced to great levels. There is controversy surrounding “casting” of a CGI James Dean in the upcoming Vietnam War drama Finding Jack. But when TMZ asked Ice Cube if Witherspoon might show up in the long-awaited Last Friday film via the technology, the veteran MC scoffed at the idea.
“Nah, never,” he responded before criticizing New Line Cinema for taking too long to greenlight the movie.
