Rapper Ice Cube’s comic turn continues to pay off as the actor has reportedly agreed to a third film in the Barbershop series that remains his most popular franchise.

Cube was in two successful comedies, “21 Jump Street” and “Ride Along,” in the past couple of years, which helped him get his new film, The Grio reports, after a ten-year hiatus. Cube is also signed to sequels of both “Jump Street” and “Ride Along.”

“Cube will again play barbershop proprietor Calvin Palmer, but it’s not known yet whether the rest of the cast of regulars will join him. But Cedric the Entertainer and Queen Latifah are reportedly being pursued for the cast,” The Grio reported.

The first two Barbershop flicks made a combined $140 million. Showtime spun off a sitcom, and another movie, “Beauty Shop,” starring Queen Latifah, stemmed from the Barbershop franchise. Reports say Cube wants Latifah in this next Barbershop film.

The next “Jump Street” will reunite Cube with stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who will again play bumbling cops on the drug beat. “Ride Along” has also gotten approval for a sequel having made nearly $150 million on a $25 million budget. Cube will join co-star Kevin Hart again in that one.

“Cube is separately producing ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ the F. Gary Gray-directed adaptation of the formation of NWA, the hip-hop ensemble that launched the careers of Cube, Easy E and Dr. Dre. He’s producing that with Dre, Easy E’s widow Tomika Wright and Matt Alvarez. Universal is casting and production is to begin this summer,” The Grio reported.

    Too many of us are wasting our valuable time and talent by choosing beaten paths to our own destruction – paths that allow others to step on our necks and keep us down because of our lack of knowledge and the presence of financial resources [jobs] that are monitored by those who believe that they are superior.

    Let’s get out of the box and move on into our God-given destiny!
