Physically “Naked” with Not Much Steam to Run On

(Aotn) There’s something about some of Marlon Wayans’ career choices this decade that could understandably be seen as “frustrating.” The youngest of the Wayans brothers has demonstrated a great knack for physical comedy (the first two entries in the Scary Movie franchise and even the goofy yet riotous White Chicks) and an equally impressive potential as a serious actor (his dramatic turn in Requiem for a Dream), but his latest – the declining Haunted House movies and the abysmal Fifty Shades of Black, which actually managed to make the series it’s spoofing look like Last Tango in Paris by comparison – are a an embarrassing nose dive in comedic standard. Enter Michael TiddesNaked, not the 1993 Cannes winner by Mike Leigh, Netflix’s latest comedic offering and a breath of stale air that actually manages to find a hint of freshness and showcase some of the good qualities of Mr.

Brittany Daniel Talks About the Epic Dance-Off at Her Wedding: 'It Was Like West Side Story Meets White Chicks'

Cannes Film Review: ‘Oh Lucy!’

Cannes Film Review: ‘Oh Lucy!’
Try to picture a Japanese remake of “Hello, My Name Is Doris,” shot through with an undertow of quiet desperation that wouldn’t be out of place in a Cristian Mungiu film, and you’re halfway toward grasping the strange appeal of director Atsuko Hirayanagi’s feature debut, “Oh Lucy!” Like a chocolate trifle with an arsenic core, this quirky portrait of a lonely Tokyo woman who follows her English teacher to California offers a skewed take on American indie tropes, effectively gesturing toward broad comic appeal while offering peeks at a profound darkness just beneath. Expanded from her award-winning short of the same title, “Oh Lucy!” betrays some rough edges in the transition, but Hirayanagi’s idiosyncratic touch marks her as a talent worth tracking.

Set in some of the least picturesque corners of Tokyo, “Oh Lucy!” is a character study about a character rarely seen on film: a quietly miserable,

Swiss Army Man directors want to remake ‘White Chicks’

Yes, you read that headline correctly. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Swiss Army Man directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan have revealed that they would really like to remake the Wayans brothers’ White Chicks… as an R-rated movie.

Scheinert had this to say to the trade:

“Oh! 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.”

We spoke with Marlon Wayans about a potential sequel in an interview for his last comedy 50 Shades Of Black a few months ago, where he pretty much said that there were no plans for any kind

White Chicks: anyone else up for a remake?

Meet the director whose dream project is to turn the comedy White Chicks into "a hard-r, Oscar-worthy drama"...

When people need guffaws, it is not often that they seek out the Wayan Brothers’ White Chicks. The 2004 movie saw Marlon and Shawn Wayans as FBI agents who go undercover as Caucasian females, to try and crack some crime that we rapidly lost interest in. The movie turned in a profit, but lord, it’s a slog.

Nonetheless, plans remain afoot for a sequel. But now, the team behind the movie Swiss Army Knife have revealed their dream to remake. We don’t make this up, we only pass it on.

Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan are the directors concerned, and Kwan told The Hollywood Reporter that “one of my dreams is to make White Chicks as a hard-r, Oscar-worthy drama, starring the original cast. It would be about

"Swiss" Helmers Talk A "White Chicks" Remake

Following its Sundance premiere, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's indie fantasy comedy "Swiss Army Man" opened in limited release his past weekend and scored one of the best per screen averages of 2016 to date.

When you make a film which features Daniel Radcliffe as a farting corpse with a boner that serves as a compass, where do you go from there? The pair have one amusing and interesting hypothetical for a potential project, Scheinert telling THR:

"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."

‘Swiss Army Man’ Directors Say They Want To Remake ‘White Chicks’ As An Oscar-Bait Drama
