This could be epic!

Chris Tucker has finally come up with an answer to his financial problems …. reprising his movie career!

Tiny Lister, who played “Debo” in the movie franchise says the 39 year-old actor is in talks with Ice Cube about filming a fourth “Friday”.

Tiny Lister was hangin’ out in L.A. last night — when the scariest man in Hollywood told us … Tucker flew him out on his private jet recently to discuss the possibility of getting the ORIGINAL “Friday” crew back together.

FYI — Tucker shot into superstardom playing pot-obsessed Smokey in the original “Friday” back in 1995 … and then refused to appear in any of the sequels, citing religious reasons.

But now, Lister tells us … Tucker and Cube have a big pow-wow set for next week to discuss a 4th “Friday” film … adding, “This is gonna be the big one.”

Lister told us he and Tucker also talked about doing a sequel to the 1997 hit, “The Fifth Element.”

If this does end up happening….we will be the first to grab our tickets. Hopefully Mike Epps will even have a role in there.
