When the hilarious trailer for “Skank Robbers” played during the BET Music Awards this year, it left viewers on the floor in tears. However, people were confused as to whether not they were watching an extremely well put together skit or a clip of a upcoming outrageous comedy. Well at the time it was a parody, but do to overwhelming positive response, Screen Gems purchased the rights to “Sheneneh and Wanda.”
Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence will star in the movie as a female bank-robbing duo. The women are based on Foxx’s and Martin’s female characters from “In Living Color” and “Martin”. Foxx and Martin will produce the comedy. Foxx will also write the script for the movie. According to Variety, “Screen Gems’ Clint Culpepper is fast tracking the production”. Gotta a feeling this will be in theatres by summer 2010.
