Mark those calendars because ‘Barbershop’ is back!

April 2016 will serve up the third instalment of the popular franchise, which now has a confirmed title of ‘Barbershop: The Next Cut.’ Check out the first official poster above, which also cements its release window.

Hip-Hop maven Nicki Minaj joins returning names such as Ice Cube, Cedric The Entertainer, and fellow femcee Eve as part of the cast.

The ‘Pink Print’ purveyor will play the sassy Draya – a stylist on the hair salon side of the shop. Ever theatrical, the rapper’s role forms part of a marked foray into the acting world – as  Minaj is also gearing up to star in an ABC sitcom.

As for Barbershop, all eyes will be on whether its third round, which is being produced by New Line, will significantly add to the box office total for the franchise (which, between its two released movies, has grossed $140 million worldwide).
