Confirmed by director Malcolm D. Lee, both Nicki Minaj and Common will be starring in the third installment of the popular Barbershop film franchise – 11 years after its last sequel. Lee also confirmed the film’s original stars, Ice Cube, Eve and Cedric the Entertainer, will also be returning.
His tweet has since been deleted, though he’s been RTing articles confirming Common’s participation. I’m wondering if it’s simply due to contract negotiations with Nicki?
No word on a release date yet, but via Eve’s Twitter, we know that table reads are already underway.
Just finished the first table read do #barbershop3 so excited, ya'll are gonna love it!!!
