Comedy stars Jamie Foxx, Martin Lawrence
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 the comedy, Sheneneh and Wanda are modern-day independent women trying to make it on their own, one bank robbery at a time.
Foxx and Lawrence have long tried to find a vehicle to work together, and Screen Gems’ Clint Culpepper is fast tracking the production.
