Marlon Wayans last year suggested that White Chicks 2 could be coming down the pike—and, in a new interview with Us Weekly, Terry Crews indicated that he’s more than down for a sequel to the 2004 comedy, reports PTI.
“I would love one,” Crews, who starred in the original, told the magazine. “I’m staying in shape for White Chicks 2...I will never, ever get out of shape because that movie’s going to happen one day.”The original film, far more successful at the box office than with critics, starred Marlon and Shawn Wayans as a pair of FBI agents who go undercover as...well, white chicks...to solve a kidnapping case. Crews starred in a supporting role as a basketball player who falls in love with one of their alter-egos. It was a gleefully stupid movie, almost admirable in its commitment to its ludicrous central gag.
A sequel has been rumored for at least ten years.
In 2009, it was reported that Sony Pictures had greenlighted the project, with Shawn, Marlon and Keenen Wayans returning, but it never got off the ground. Marlon Wayans talked about the project again in 2014, telling the Grio that a White Chicks sequel is a “must.”
“We’ll find a way to get it done,” he said.
Then, during an appearance on MTV’s TRL last March, he said that there had been “some rumblings happening” and that he and his brothers “had been talking” about the project.
“So if things go right,” he said, “we hope to do a White Chicks 2.”
