Is ‘White Chicks 2’ Really Happening?
White Chicks hit theaters in 2004, and despite being a “hit or miss” with the critics, it proved to be successful at the box offices. It bought in 113.1 million in the worldwide box office, going against the critic’s views the film was “a predictable farce” that was set up with “a lazy and generic script.”
No matter what people said, however, there are people all over who can’t help but love anything the Wayans brothers do.
The plot was what one would expect from a goofball comedy called White Chicks with two black males in the leading roles. Marlon and Shawn Wayans play the role of disgraced FBI agents who just can’t seem to work a beat without messing things up. In an effort to redeem themselves, they go undercover against the wishes of their superiors… as rich white chicks. A hilarious comedy bit ensues, and the bad guys eventually get caught in the end.
Is ‘White Chicks 2’ going to happen?
For the last 10 years, there have been rumors that a White Chicks 2 was in the works. In fact, it was supposedly given the green light once but something happened to get the plug pulled before production could get underway.
At one point, Marlon Wayans stated that there were “some rumblings” about the film getting made, but for quite some time there hasn’t been any news about the project.
Until, that is, a recent interview with Terry Crews brought the idea back into the limelight. According to Crews, he’d love a sequel to be made. He went on to say that he’s “staying in shape for White Chicks 2…I will never, ever get out of shape because that movie’s going to happen one day.”
Terry Crews’ role in the original White Chicks was unforgettable, and to hear he’s on board with the project undoubtedly makes fans of the film ecstatic. In his supporting role, Crews portrays a basketball player who falls in love with one of the Wayans’ brothers alter-egos. The basketball player is very open about preferring white chicks, and the part where he begins singing Vanessa Carlton just goes to prove it.
Perhaps one of the funniest scenes in the original movie was when Crews’ character finds out that his beloved isn’t who he thinks at all. Instead of being upset that he’s been romancing a man, however, he’s upset that the character isn’t white.
Other hints the movie might be coming
As mentioned before, there have been rumors for a decade that White Chicks 2 was going to happen. In fact, Marlon Wayans made a faux movie poster and posted the image to his Instagram account back in 2015. The faux poster received more than 300,000 likes on Instagram and a total of over 1.5 million across three separate social media outlets.
Marlon stated back then that he’d be sharing his feedback with the studios to see what they would say. He stated that he wanted to make White Chicks 2 his next movie. That, however, was about four years ago and nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
While there are a LOT of Wayans brothers fans who would LOVE to see a White Chicks 2, the odds that the film will be made isn’t looking good. With a decade of rumors and no progress, some might say it’s time to give up what looks like a pipe dream.
With Terry Crews now also being verbal about a sequel, however, maybe the film studios will start to take notice.
