What’s Stopping Marlon Wayans From Making A White Chicks Sequel?


The Heat is killing it at the box office, making us all quite hopeful for the prospects of more female-led action comedies. We’re also wondering if it leaves the door open for a slightly different “female” FBI duo: Shawn and Marlon Wayans‘ blond alter egos from 2004’s White Chicks. Marlon, who also appears in The Heat as an FBI agent, told VH1 about the odds of a sequel.

“We’re thinking about it, actually seriously talking about doing it,” he said. “It’s the one thing that everybody begs us to do.”

Even when he’s been overseas doing stand-up, people bring up the movie, which was directed by his older brother Keenan Ivory Wayans. “I was just in Australia doing a show and … when I said a quote from the movie, I got a rousing applause. At a point I just forgot my act and was just like, ‘You said it but you were thinking it,’ and it was like, ‘Haaaaa!’

As much as he would love to do a sequel, he has one reservation about it: “It’s just a lot of work to play white women, because [it requires] seven hours of makeup. God, if white girls have to do that every day, I feel sorry for you!”
