It started as a comedy sketch on the “BET Awards,” but by popular demand, a movie will be produced starring the characters Sheneneh from “Martin” and Wanda from “In Living Color.”
Screen Gems has acquired “Sheneneh and Wanda,” starring Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence in the female characters they developed for their respective television shows.
Foxx will write the script and he and Martin will produce together through Foxx’s Foxxhole and Lawrence’s Runteldat production banners, reports Variety.
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. [Watch clip below.] 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.
Foxx, who last starred in “Law Abiding Citizen,” will next be seen in the romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day.” Lawrence will next be seen in the Screen Gems comedy “Death at a Funeral.”
