Sheneneh and Wanda Movie A Go!

wandashenenhIt all started right here at BET! One of the funniest moments at this year’s BET Awards had to be the Sheneneh and Wanda skit “Skank Robbers” with Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence.  Well, the fans spoke and the film is a go.  According to Variety.com:

Foxx will write the script, which he and Martin will produce through Foxx’s FoxxKing and Lawrence’s Runteldat production banners.

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 case you forgot, Sheneneh Jenkins was a character from the 90s sitcom Martin.  She lived across the hall from Martin and consistently harassed his wife, Gina, and Gina’s best friend, Pam.

Wanda was from In Living Color, always on the hunt for a man with her “naturally” blond hair and outlandish outfits.  Her catch phrases like, “I’m reat’ to go!” and “I’m gonna rock your world!” made her one of the show’s most popular characters.

Congrats to Foxx and Lawrence on sealing the deal.  No word on a release date but let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long.  I wonder if Madea will make a cameo?

Check out the clip that started it all!

What kind of shenanigans will they portray? Girls from the hood losing their home, power being turned off, standing in line for LIEHEAP, trying to start a business and discover that SBC is a fraud, getting robbed…there is just so much material out there for them to exploit. We’ve got to laugh to keep from crying. God bless us everyone.

i definitely think that the idea of Madea in the movie, would work perfectly for this film. . Im thinking she should be the Boss Lady of the team, or someone they look up to as support or ask for pointers.

lol! Talk about CLICHE! It’s THEE perfect one! Seems as if it could come off cheesy, but IF done well, these could be a masterpiece! Hopefully, they don’t go the ‘Scary Movie’ route and try 2 do sequel after sequel BUT if they do it this one time…we can dub it the BIG BANG!! lol. Shenenah? WANDA? ARE YOU SERIOUS! There is bound to be some weave-pullin’, nail-breakin laughter to come out of this! Very excited. Trailer? Genious. <3
