In the latest episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Terry Crews affirmed that he has been in contact with Shawn Wayans, who wrote, produced, and played in the original White Chicks with his brother Marlon Wayans.
In answer to a caller about a sequel to the 2004 blockbuster smash Crews said, “You know what, I got with Shawn, and he was like ‘man we doing it, we getting it going.’”
The original White Chicks was an instant classic, grossing over $70 million in the United States and $42 million in other territories. The hilarious and well-known scenes from the film have been kept alive through syndication and an ever-growing culture of White Chicks memes and internet fodder.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past 15 years and haven’t seen the film, here’s a brief description of it: two black FBI agents in danger of losing their jobs, go undercover as two white women to prevent the abduction of the daughters of a notable businessman.
In the interview Crews also told Andy Cohen that the next White Chicks flick might insert another classic pop song performance, comparable to his legendary cover of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” in the original: “I think the modern-day equivalent to that might be Carly Rae Jepsen ‘Call Me Maybe.’”
