With such a huge cult following around the original White Chicks movie, which first dropped in 2004, fans have been demanding a sequel for some time. With teases that it may be made at some point, audiences got excited but, Marlon Wayans may have now put a stop to any of that building anticipation.
Speaking as part of GQ’s Iconic Characters series, Wayans looked back at his time on the film, which he said “almost killed” he and his brother and co-star, Shawn Wayans. He then admitted he has no interest in getting back in front of the cameras for White Chicks 2, despite demands.
“Makeup movies, until they learn how to digitally do it, special effects wise [no thanks],” he explained. “That’s a lot of work. Everybody’s like, ‘Do White Chicks 2,’ I’m like, ‘F**k yourself, you do White Chicks 2!’ I’m doing Black man movies.”
So, after over a decade of talks it would seem that there is no sequel in sight. Though one was confirmed back in 2009, Sony cancelled the project and since that point, Wayans has simply spitballed about the idea of bringing the characters of Kevin and Marcus Anthony Copeland II back.
Terry Crews would say in 2019 that the sequel was in development, but Wayans was quick to quash those remarks, saying no deal had been signed between the brothers and Sony.
Fortunately, the original comedy flick is so good, that it’s worth a rewatch at any time of the year. Whether you’re going into it for the first, second or hundredth time, it’s still absolutely hilarious and, there are moments you’ll find that you missed in your previous watches.
Unless huge technological advancements are made, to the point where CGI could be used to create the ‘White Chicks’ in question, we don’t see any movement being made on White Chicks 2 now, or for the foreseeable future.
A shame but, probably for the best. Why risk tarnishing what’s gone down as one of the funniest films of all time?
Wayans recently starred in the rebooted Bel-Air TV series as Lou and, will feature in upcoming movie Boo!, set to release later this year.
