Marlon Wayans sets the record straight about a possible “White Chicks” sequel!
On Thursday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” the actor — who co-wrote, co-produced, and co-starred in the 2004 comedy with brother Shawn Wayans — was asked if there was an update about “White Chicks 2.”
In a July 2019 “WWHL” appearance, Terry Crews, who also starred in the film directed by Marlon and Shawn’s brother Keenen, told host Andy Cohen that he “actually got with Shawn, and he was like, ‘Man, we doing it, we getting it going.’”
“I’m staying in shape just for that movie. I’ve been working out for 15 years so we can do ‘White Chicks 2,’ y’all. Please, please,” Crews added.
In response, Shawn said, “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.”
In all seriousness, the 48-year-old answered, “We’re working toward it. I’ll let you guys know when it happens. But we’re moving slowly toward it.”
“I like doing movies where I’m a Black man. It’s a lot less makeup,” Shawn added.
In the iconic film, Shawn and Marlon play two FBI agents who go undercover as white women to solve a kidnapping plot.
The movie famously featured the song “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton.
