The Barbershop series is a beloved franchise, and had it not had a minor misstep with spin-off, Beauty Shop, it probably would have spawned a few more sequels. Well, it’s never too late to reignite a successful series, and Barbershop will be getting a proper third installment with much of the returning cast, including Ice Cube, Eve, and Cedric The Entertainer.
Of course, if they’re looking for new fans, they’ll have to give things a more modern twist, and the addition of Nicki Minaj and Common as cast members should be a big draw for the younger crowd.
Minaj made her big screen debut in The Other Woman a couple years back, and while it’s not clear if her Barbershop role will be yet another bit part, or a starring role, the director has confirmed her involvement, and she’s even sat down for a table reading.
No news on when the film will be arriving, but it looks as if filming should begin fairly soon.
