White Chicks 2 release date, trailer, or cast has not been announced yet. The latest update on the movie is that it will be made someday in the future. One of the film’s producers, and one of the lead stars, Marlon Wayans, has made it clear that the movie was quite strenuous to film, and as such, there won’t be a White Chicks 2 until digital technology can help reduce some of the stress of filming.
When Did White Chicks Come Out?
White Chicks came out on the 23rd day of June 2004. The comedy film features two brothers, Marlon and Shawn Wayans, as two FBI agents, Marcus Anthony II and Kevin Copeland, respectively, tasked with the lowly task of protecting two blonde heiresses – Brittany and Tiffany Wilson, from kidnappers.
To do their job, the two brothers, both black men, disguise themselves as the Wilson sisters to smoke out the kidnappers. The transformation of the two African-American brothers into two blonde empty heads was quite hilarious in itself. Beyond appearance, the fact that many didn’t know about their real identity made for several hilarious antics throughout the duration of the film.
When White Chicks was released, it was eviscerated by the critics, but it was nevertheless lapped up by moviegoers, grossing $113.1 on a budget of $37 million. As years passed by, the film grew into a cult classic, and as such, new and old generations of fans have yearned for a sequel.
Will There Be a White Chicks 2?
There is no release date nor trailer for White Chicks 2, as the film has not been approved for production. However, there will likely be White Chicks 2 someday in the future, as fans have continuously clamored for it. This clamor, as well as all the speculations surrounding White Chicks 2, go back several years.
As far back as 2009, which was five years after the first film was released, distribution company Sony Pictures announced that there would be White Chicks 2, but nothing came of it. By 2014, one of the lead stars as well as one of the film’s producers, Marlon Wayans, stated that there were some hindrances to making the film but that a White Chicks sequel was a must.
Given such cogent words, one would have expected that White Chicks 2 would have come out in the years following that statement, but this did not materialize. In 2018, Marlon Wayans stated that White Chicks 2 was in the works but walked back from that position in 2019. This retraction came after Terry Crews, one of the stars of the film, had stated that a White Chicks 2 was on the way.
In 2022, Marlon Wayans made it clear that doing White Chicks 2 was not high on his list of priorities due to the difficulty of transforming two black men into white ladies. According to him, he and his brother Shawn had to go through seven hours of make-up application each day. They would then spend 14 hours filming and use one hour to remove the makeup. Both brothers only got two hours of sleep each day for the 65 days they spent filming, and such a schedule nearly killed them.
Given all this stress, Marlon Wayans has stated that he would only do a White Chicks 2 if there is a technology that can digitally transform him and his brother into white ladies without stressing them so much. Such words seem like a death knell on the possibility of White Chicks 2, but there is still hope.
While appearing on the Drink Champs Podcast with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN in April 2023, Marlon Wayans stated that he would do a White Chicks 2 but that it would have to be him and Shawn together again. He went on to make it clear that he didn’t want to say too much, perhaps not to jinx the project.
Also, in May 2023, a White Chicks 2 poster started circulating on social media. Marlon had to come out and deny it and stated that the poster was fake. Fans of the franchise were none too happy with him and pleaded with him and his brother to release something, even a snippet, for them.
Where Can I Watch White Chicks?
One can watch White Chicks on streaming platforms such as Netflix, DIRECTV, AMAZON PRIME VIDEO, Amazon Max, and Hoopla. You can also purchase or rent White Chicks on Microsoft Store, Vudu, Apple TV, Amazon Store, Google Play Store, AMC Theatres, and YouTube. White Chicks was also released via home media that same month it debuted in the cinemas. So you can be able to get your hands on a DVD copy of White Chicks.
Will White Chicks 2 Be on Netflix?
There is every possibility that White Chicks 2 will be on Netflix as well as other major streaming platforms. The new trend in the movie industry is that streaming platforms have become the default for the release of movies. It is only big-budget productions that still go for a traditional theatrical release.
Therefore, we may see Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans eschew a theatrical release in favor of releasing White Chicks on streaming platforms when the movie is eventually made.
White Chicks 2 Cast Members
Two persons that will likely be among the cast members of White Chicks 2 are brothers Shawn and Marlon Wayans. They played the lead roles of Kevin Copeland and Marcus Anthony Copeland II, respectively, i.e., the two FBI agents who go underground as two blonde ladies, Brittany Wilson (Shawn) and Tiffany Wilson (Marlon), who are the targets of a kidnap plot.
Marlon and his brother, Shawn, are the two lead stars of White Chicks, and recasting them would radically alter the film. Marlon himself has also made it clear that he won’t do a sequel without Shawn. Another likely cast member of White Chicks 2 is Terry Crews. He played the unforgettable character of Latrell Spencer, an NBA player who falls in love with Tiffany (Marcus).
He hotly pursues his love interest throughout the movie and is disappointed when Tiffany turns out to be a black dude named Marcus. He later strikes up an interesting relationship with the real Tiffany and her sister Brittany. Crews have often spoken fondly of his work in White Chicks and has expressed his wish that there be a sequel. Therefore, it is obvious that he is interested in appearing in White Chicks 2.
It is hard to tell who else may appear in White Chicks 2. There will be some new cast members. Some old cast members of the first film may also reprise their roles. Let us take a look at the list of cast members of White Chicks:
