When news of a third Barbershop started going around, I was really excited. I couldn’t wait to see Ice Cube and the gang on the big screen again.
Enough about me.
News coming out of New Line/MGM is that Young Money rapper; Nicki Minaj, Regina Hall and Deon Cole have all joined the cast of Barbershop 3. They join Common, Eve, Cedric the Entertainer and Ice Cube himself, who had all previously been confirmed to be playing a part in the film.
Now, I (used to) love Nicki Minaj as a rapper, but I’m very skeptical about her inclusion in the film. Really, what does she have to offer the movie world (except maybe OSTs)? I really hope all she has is a cameo appearance. Regina Hall on the other hand, I have no problem with.
Barbershop 3 will be directed by Malcom D. Lee, and is set to drop sometime in 2016.
