Martin Lawrence and Jamie Foxx to Write, Star, and Produce Skank Robbers

Lawrence and Foxx to Take Their Female Alter Egos to the Big Screen

After countless box office hits, Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence are going back to their roots on network shows In Living Color and Martin.

Each actor portrayed an unfortunate-looking female character on their respective '90s shows — "Sheneneh" for Lawrence and "Wanda" for Foxx, and now the pair will team up to portray them in a movie called Skank Robbers. Stemming from a fake trailer of the same name at a recent awards show, studio Screen Gems picked up the movie, with Foxx and Lawrence writing and producing. Sure, this could be a dime-a-dozen, groan-out-loud flick like one you'd see from Eddie Murphy, but my appreciation for '90s comedy is telling me it could be funny.
