It’s been 15 years since the release of the cult classic White Chicks. As Terry Crews ignited the notion of a sequel this week, Marlon Wayans quickly shut it down.
Taking to Instagram Wednesday (July 3), the actor-comedian stated there is no confirmed deal in the works for White Chicks 2. Released in 2004, White Chicks featured Marlon and Shawn Wayans as undercover FBI agents who hid in plain sight by disguising themselves as privileged white women. While the film faced terrible reviews, it still grossed over $100 million in the box office, making it the highest grossing comedy of 2004.
Co-stars like Crews and Busy Phillips still showed their enthusiasm for a sequel on his post.
As it held on to a new life in cable, it also took home two awards at the short-lived BET Comedy Awards for Outstanding Directing for a Box Office Movie and Outstanding Writing for a Box Office Movie.
Fans have been hoping for a sequel and Crews confirmed a follow-up film was in the works during his interview with Andy Cohen’s What What Happens Live! “You know what? I actually got with Shawn [Wayans], and he was like, ‘Man, we doing it, we getting it going’,’ Terry said in response to a fan calling about the rumours.
Talks of sequel kicked off in 2009 with Sony announcing then cancelling the project. In 2014, Marlon Wayans also expressed interest in the project, but given today’s political climate and state of race relations, White Chicks 2 might not make it to the big screen.
