The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star hinted in two separate interviews that there is going to be a sequel to the 2004 flick.
Even the unlikeliest of scenarios become likely in the world of Hollywood -- in this case, it's the possibility of a sequel to White Chicks which is said to be on the cards. Marlon Wayans had mentioned "rumblings" of a potential sequel to the 2004 flick starring two of the Wayans brothers. Then, the beloved Terry Crews added fuel to fire by confirming that the movie is set to happen, reports MovieWeb. Crews, who played Latrell Spencer in the film, spoke in two separate interviews and reaffirmed the likelihood of the sequel. At this point, though, not much else is clear.
In the first instance, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star spoke to a caller on Watch What Happens Live and said Shawn Wayans revealed to him that it would happen. "You know what, I actually got with Shawn [Wayans], and he was like 'man we doing it, we getting it going...' Fifteen years ago, you have to understand. Fifteen years ago as of this month. I'm staying in shape just for that movie," Crews said. In another interview on The Talk, Crews recalled the scene from the movie where he sings "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton and joked that if the same scenario were to play out in the sequel he would mostly sing a Top 40 pop song -- something by Carly Rae Jepsen or even a rap song.
"I think the modern-day equivalent to that might be Carly Rae Jepsen 'Call Me Maybe.'," Crews said thinking about what song he'd sing. "But I would definitely do the whitest white girl song you would ever see. But white girls are singing gangster right now, you know what I mean? So it might be a little different, it might have a little rap thing in there. However we would do it, it'd be great." Directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans, the original had a more than decent showing at the box office despite being critically panned by critics and audience alike, receiving a paltry 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The saving grace for the film however was that it became a lovable comedy flick with a lot of hilarious moments as it became a mainstay in cable TV for years while also enjoying good DVD sales and rental revenues since then.
The plot of the film features two disgraced FBI agents, Kevin Copeland (Shawn Wayans) and Marcus Copeland (Marlon Wayans) who are assigned a new case where they must protect Tiffany and Brittany Wilson, heiresses of two cruise lines, from being abducted. The movie was produced on a budget of $37 million and went on to make $113 million at the box office. The Wayans brothers' decision to produce a sequel makes sense considering several other comedy movie continuations are doing fairly well at the box office despite the first one receiving less than favorable reviews. The most popular example would be the Will Smith and Martin Laurence starter Bad Boys 2 from 2003 which received a 23% approval rating and its sequel Bad Boys For Life becoming a massive blockbuster, raking in $426 million at the box office.
