CAN WE GET A CLIP? The next appointment to climb into Cedric's chair should come early next year

'Fro and behold! Production on the sequel to last year's $76 million hit locked last month, with the MGM comedy 'do out February 2004. Want highlights? Most of the original cast members -- Ice Cube, Eve, Cedric the Entertainer -- return, with a new director, ''How Stella Got Her Groove Back'''s Kevin Rodney Sullivan. (''Barbershop'' helmer Tim Story is busy working on another project.) Now the gang takes on ''the good and bad of gentrification,'' Ice Cube tells EW, as his business is threatened by an upscale salon chain that's moved into the hood. If that plot sounds as stiff as a blast of Aqua Net, fear not: Cedric guarantees they haven't trimmed back on laughs -- or controversy. This time around, he'll knock ''Bush, Trent Lott, the war,'' says the Entertainer. ''Basically, I'm filibustering.''
