Yep, you read right. No mistake. A "White Chicks 2" is reportedly coming to cinemas near you (LINK).

A future Razzie nominee for sure, I think HeadRazz should include it in his Up-Coming Projects list!


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Yer wish is my command...well, sometimes.  See below...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Although it failed to "win" any awards, the original 2004 WHITE CHICKS was nominated for 5 dis-honors, including Worst Picture (LINK).  In the "pantheon" of Wayans Brothers "comedies," it was admittedly one of their bigger "hits." But by normal studio standards, it was not a major success as a theatrical release (B.O. MoJo LINK) so it is unclear why Sony/Columbia would even consider doing a sequel -- Unless they're planning a Direct-to-DVD release...

Here's the full text of the announcement in The Hollywood Reporter: 

LOS ANGELES - The Wayans brothers and Sony Pictures are developing a sequel to the 2004 comedy "White Chicks," in which Marlon and Shawn Wayans will reprise their roles as sibling FBI agents posing as a pair of white women.

Keenen Ivory Wayans is on board to direct the sequel, which all three Wayans are writing. The plot of the new entry is being kept under wraps.

The first film was a surprise hit, grossing almost $70 million domestically; it was made for about $37 million.

The trio last worked together on "Dance Flick," which they acted in, produced and co-wrote with family members Craig Wayans and Damien Dante Wayans.

Keenan Ivory Wayans' last directing project was 2006's "Little Man." Marlon Wayans is on the big screen as Ripcord in the current release "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra."

I think I have a solution that should be acceptable to all parties: Why don't we just send the Wayans brothers the 5 Razzies they didn't "win" last for the first film. That way, they get the awards without having to go through the effort of making the movie...and we are spared having to see it. A win/win situation, if there ever was one!

The first was a pretty funny movie. I've never laughed so hard. *let the bashing start*

No feeding, just too easy. 

If the Wayans want to do a sequel, it should be "Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood ... 2". That was the funniest movie they ever have made. Though, admittedly, that's not saying much...

If they made that, they'd have to make the sequel name just as long as the first. I'm too tired to come up with anything clever at the moment, but if no one else does, I'll look up some other gangsta movie titles and make a full one.

I wish the Wayans will take on more dramatic roles, such as acting in Requiem for a Dream or Bamboozled, instead of crappy roles like these just for quick cash. Probably a waste of an actor.

I agree, but they prefer to do comedy instead, perhaps because it's easier for them to do. Their careers are suffering because of their own laziness.

Well, it's expected of them. And what's weird is that Shawn has more seeming ability to do more dramatic, and seems to completely refuse to go outside his bubble, whereas Marlon will dip his toes from time to time.

WHITE CHICKS had bad directing,but it was O.K. in general.You don't believe?Then how come the box office hit?I know you think that means nothing,since a lot of times hits are trashed by critics.That's true,but if this was in fact one of the worst movies ever like you say,it would've flop.
 
If a movie is bad,it can just bad or berry bad.
 
Even though the nominees this year for "Worst Picture" that floped are only 2,and all of the ones up for "Worst Picture Of The Decade" floped.
 
However,this shouldn't be made.They got lucky the first time,but this one could flop.

The reason why it made money was because the Wayans were on a hot streak from the "Scary Movies". Once people saw this piece of s***, that hot streak cooled quickly. The movie wasn't funny, the Wayans looked nothing like humans let alone white women when they were in make-up, and the movie was full of racist and sexist undertones. There is no reason for a sequel.

All of those visual errors are to blame Keenen Ivory Wayans.Like I said,it had bad directing,but I think it's good all together.

We're all allowed to like a terrible movie here and there, but BO does not exempt a movie from BO. (That's Box Office, as in money, for the first BO, and body odor for the second). Again, look at Rotten Tomatoes top 10 Box Office on any given week, and there's generally 2-3 movies with a positive rating. My point being that in the United States at least, people have terrible, terrible taste in movies, in general.
