White Chicks pushed the envelope with edgy jokes the poked fun and plenty of stereotypes which to this day still hit society on the head. This is one of the main reasons why Marlon Wayans wants to make White Chicks 2. Read on…
CelebnMovies247.com reports that Marlon Wayans has been eyeing more serious roles for his career, but he still “definitely” wants to make a White Chicks sequel.
Marlon Wayans recently spoke about the potentiality of a White Chicks sequel.
He had this to say in the newest issue of People magazine:
People always say, ‘Could you do a White Chicks 2 now?’ I think definitely. A good joke is when you can make the people you’re parodying laugh. Who loves White Chicks the most? White chicks. In this environment, in this climate, we all need something to laugh at about ourselves.
Rumors of a White Chicks 2 were exacerbated last year when Terry Crews claimed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that a sequel was in the works. According to Crews at the time, he had collaborated with Shawn Wayans on the project, and the sequel sounded almost like a done deal.
Marlon debunked those claims by telling his followers on Instagram that no deal was yet in place.
This week, Marlon Wayans appeared on Watch What Happens to personally let fans know:
Terry’s lying, but I ain’t going to say that to him because he’s too buff and I don’t want to get beat up… We’re working toward it. I’ll let you guys know when it happens, happens. But we’re moving slowly toward it… I like doing movies where I’m a Black man. It’s a lot less makeup.
Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans, White Chicks was released in 2004 and starred Marlon alongside brother Shawn as two Black men working as FBI agents who go undercover as white women to crack a kidnapping case.
Soon after, Marlon debunked those claims by telling his followers on Instagram that no deal was yet in place. Now, appearing personally on Watch What Happens, Marlon has expanded more on what Crews said, promising to keep fans informed as soon as something happens.
White Chicks was a financial success, earning over $113 million with a budget of $37 million.
Wayans can currently be seen in On the Rocks opposite Rashida Jones which is director Sofia Coppola.
In 2021, Wayans will also return to the big screen in the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, playing the late singer’s first husband, Ted White. Jennifer Hudson also stars as Franklin
