"White Chicks" remake. Nay or Yay?

28 Jun – Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, directors of "Swiss Army Man", have expressed their interest in making a remake of cult classic buddy cop comedy, "White Chicks" – but this time, as an R-rated movie!

"One of my dreams is to make White Chicks as a hard-R, Oscar-worthy drama, starring the original cast," said Scheinert in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"It would be about gender and race relations in the 21st century, starring the Wayans Brothers," he added.

"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."

Kwan agreed with his partner-in-crime, adding "But it explores it in the worst way possible."

Just to recap, "White Chicks" follows two cops played by Marlon and Shawn Wayans, who go undercover as two white women in an attempt to stop a kidnapping plot.

Released in 2004, the movie did not impress the critics but it still ended up being a box office success due to its unusual premise.


Daniel Radcliffe (L) plays Manny the talking corpse.

And talking about unusual premise, Scheinert and Kwan's "Swiss Army Man" is also known to be one of the weirdest movies of 2016 due to its bizarre plot.

Starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, the movie is about a man named Hank who befriends a talking corpse whom he named Manny and discovers the amazing abilities and powers that Manny can do.

"Swiss Army Man" was released in the US on 24 June, and is set to be widely released on 1 July 2016.
