Rapper turned actress Queen Latifah has been replaced in the upcoming Barbershop spin-off Beauty Shop by Vivica A Fox.

OSCAR-nominated CHICAGO star Latifah makes an appearance in Ice Cube's BARBERSHOP 2, where her character was supposed to be introduced to audiences before appearing in her own spin-off movie franchise.

But busy Latifah has now been replaced by 50 CENT's reported belle Fox for the film, which goes into production from 19 October (03) in Baltimore, Maryland.
