Though a critical bomb, 2004’s White Chicks was a commercial hit, and the film had managed to attain a cult status as well as rocket Terry Crews into stardom. Though it’s been more than a decade and a half, star Marlon Wayans thinks that it’s the right time for a sequel.
Talking to Variety, Wayans says:
“I think ‘White Chicks 2’ is necessary… I think we’ve tightened up so much that we need to loosen our ties a bit and laugh a little bit… I don’t think Hollywood understands what a juggernaut ‘White Chicks 2’ would be.”
Wayans didn’t offer any story details, but he does say that, “the world just keeps giving us more [story ideas]. ‘White Chicks 2’ is writing itself.”
To catch you up on the movie, the story follows two black FBI agents (Wayans and his brother Shawn) who find themselves disguised as two white socialite women in an attempt to foil a kidnapping plot; hijinks occur and hilarity ensues.
The film is an early 2000s brand of raunchy, and it’s the source of a lot of great gags; one of the most infamous probably made Terry Crews forever attached to the song Thousand Miles.
With the current social climate, it could be hard to make a movie like it today, but I imagine it can also be a great opportunity for some elevated humor from the Wayans brothers. Of course, if they’re up for people bashing them for giving in to the ‘Woke Agenda.’
A White Chicks sequel has not been officially announced.
