After Terry Crews' claim on 'White Chicks 2', Marlon Wayans dashes hopes of sequel with Insta post
Fans of the cult classic buddy comedy still have some hope as Marlon Wayans, in spite of the Instagram post, is not against the idea of a ‘White Chicks’ sequel
In the 15 years since its release, 'White Chicks' gained a cult following and became a pop culture phenomenon. Fans of the Wayans Brothers movie were overjoyed when actor, comedian, and activist Terry Crews announced that a sequel was in the works. But the celebrations are about to end as Marlon Wayans has revealed that ‘White Chicks 2’ is not, in fact, on the way... yet.
Wayans, who played an FBI undercover agent's role along with his brother Shawn Wayans, shared a post on Instagram saying that there was no deal in place for the sequel, dashing the hopes of die-hard fans.
According to Metro, Crews said this during an appearance on Andy Cohen’s 'Watch What Happens Live'. "You know what? I actually got with Shawn (Wayans), and he was like, 'Man, we doing it, we getting it going'," the 'Brookly Nine Nine' star said.
He said he was eagerly waiting to reprise his role as basketball player Latrell Spencer, joking that he stayed in shape all these years specifically for a chance to act in the sequel. “I’ve stayed in shape just for that movie. I’ve been working out for 15 years so we could do White Chicks 2, ya’ll. Please! Please!”
Marlon Wayans, despite the Instagram post, is not exactly against the idea of a ‘White Chicks’ sequel. In the past, he had expressed interest in bringing out a second ‘White Chicks’ movie, especially considering the popular support for one.
“Is 'White Chicks 2' happening anytime soon? I don’t know,” the 46-year-old actor told TRL. “But there’s been a lot of rumblings happening. A lot of people want us to do it. So, me and my brothers have been talking. So if things go right, we hope to do a 'White Chicks 2’," he said.
'White Chicks', first released to negative reviews from critics in 2004. However, the film became the highest-grossing comedy film of that year by raking in $113 million worldwide.
