Deadline says that Ice Cube is negotiating a mid-seven-figure payday with MGM to reprise his role in what will be Barbershop 3, and the project is out to writers. MG also hopes to snag Cedric the Entertainer and Queen Latifah as well for the threequel. Cube will produce with production partner Matt Alvarez, Bob Teitel and George Tillman Jr who produced the first 2 films. Collectively, both movies grossed $140 million domestically on comparitively low budgets, and were financial successes for the studio. Ice Cube is certainly keeping himself busy, with a sequel to the box office smash Ride Along greenlit, and the production of Straight Outta Compton, the F. Gary Gray-directed bio of the rap group that launched Ice's career, NWA.
