The filmmaking duo of Dan Kwan and Dan Scheinert are planning to remake the comedy ‘White Chicks’….into an R-Rated drama.
The original movie tells the hilarious tale of two African-American FBI agents who go undercover as Caucasian women to destroy a kidnapping plot against the wealthy ladies they are impersonating.
This year, twelve years after its release, the movie’s journey has taken a shocking twist now that the aforementioned Scheinert and Kwan have revealed that they hope to recreate it.
One of my dreams is to make ‘White Chicks’ as a hard-R, Oscar-worthy drama, starring the original cast. It would be about gender and race relations in the 21st century, starring the Wayans brothers. I don’t know if you have seen ‘White Chicks’ lately, but it has a lot of meat to it and explores everything, like class, gender, race, the handicapped, age.
