Marlon Wayans is adamant about making a White Chicks 2.

The comedian took to Twitter to post a faux White Chicks 2 movie poster. He caption the photo: ” Show of hands who wants to see the sequel to this? 300,000 likes and I may make this our next movie.”

The photo has  received over 407,000 likes on Instagram and over 700,000 likes on Facebook.

Talks of a sequel to the hit 2004 movie have been circulating for years. In 2014, Wayans told The Grio that a change in the film sales market had  prevented the possibility of a sequel.  He said,“I think people are scared that it’s 10 years removed. Overseas markets have changed and selling foreign isn’t as lucrative as it was for these types of movies.”

Due to the outpouring of support, Wayans now says it’s his mission to make the film.

“The response has been overwhelming and amazing,” Wayans told HuffPost about the photo.

“This movie is something that my fans really want,” Wayans said. “This is a movie that definitely should be made. I’m on a mission to make this happen. I know with all that’s happened in the pop culture and the socialite circles since the original White Chicks we can surely knock a sequel way out the park.”

The settlement also says that Shepherd can still move forward with her fraud claim against ex-husband, Lamar Sally, 44, and if the appeals court rules in her favor, she will no longer be mandated to pay child support.

The actress also asked that the embryos she shares with Sally be destroyed. Sally has not given his decision on the matter, but should any of the embryos be brought to term, the agreement stipulates that Shepherd will not be financially responsible for them.

Rumor has it that Cruise will reprise his wildly-talked about role as Maverick in Top Gun.

Skydance CEO David Ellison recently shared that preparations are underway for the new project.

He said, “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today. It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters … It’s really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today.
