Ever wonder if there is a God? Well guess what, there apparently is a God, because otherwise how could you explain the recent announcement of a “White Chicks” sequel? Only the Almighty can make something this miraculous happen. Hallelujah! Anyways, where was I? Oh right, the Wayan brothers have gotten their ginormous brains together and will be banging out a sequel to their surprise 2004 comedy hit about sibling FBI agents who pose as the fugliest white girls in the history of fugly white girls to, one presumes, solve a case.
THR says Keenen Ivory Wayans is onboard to direct, with brothers Marlon and Shawn Wayans reprising their roles. All three bros will be working on the script for producer Joe Roth, though they do reserve the right to add an additional dozen or so Wayans to the credits by the time the film gets made.
So, why a sequel? Is the world clamoring for more “White Chicks”? Not really, but the original did turn a nice profit ($70 million domestic on a $37 million dollar budget). Plus, it’s two black guys in white girl make-up. I mean, come on, who can’t get enough of that? I know I can’t. That, and tumors. I love me some tumors, too.
