Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence are in talks to make a Sheneneh and Wanda movie? I never thought that I would live long enough to witness two Heats in my lifetime! These guys know what I’m talking about:
I read somewhere (I didn’t read anywhere) that A Righteous Kill was originally pitched as a Sheneneh and Wanda movie, but Foxx and Lawrence turned it down because the number of fart jokes was not up to their exacting standards. From Variety:
Screen Gems has acquired “Sheneneh and Wanda,” a vehicle for Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence to star in a comic caper playing female characters they developed during their stand-up comedy days.
Foxx will write the script, which he and Martin will produce through Foxx’s Foxxhole and Lawrence’s Runteldat production banners.
Oh good, Jamie Foxx is writing the script. It’s important, when making a Sheneneh and Wanda movie, that you get as good of a script as possible, written by someone who is very good at writing, so this is perfect.
Where did this project originate?
The project originated as a parody of a movie trailer for a film called “Skank Robbers,” which Foxx and Lawrence made for the BET Awards. The reaction was strong enough that the duo decided to turn the concept into a real film.
In the comedy, Sheneneh and Wanda are modern-day independent women trying to make it on their own, one bank robbery at a time.
Oh yeah, I remember that sketch. It was great (it was not great). Now just imagine this level of HILARITY stretched out for a full hour-and-a-half!
It’s like Big Momma’s House meets Madea Goes to Jail meets 1993!
Good work, Hollywood. Good work, everyone, really. Although, you guys know that “modern-day independent women” aren’t men, right? They’re still women. They’re not men dressed up like women. Not yet.
