On the eve of Starz Entertainment’s release of the stand-up comedy series, Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-up we discovered the news that comedian and actor Martin Lawrence is about to move forward with a project that is an independent film!
We also discovered from a reliable source that Lawrence is also moving forward with his film with Jamie Foxx titled Sheneneh and Wanda which (as we reported earlier) is based on outrageous female characters last seen on In Living Color and Martin.
No word yet on what the independent film will be about or the tile.
Lawrence and Foxx are developing the Sheneneh and Wanda film together as a comic caper film. Foxx will write the script, and he and Martin will produce it together through Foxx’s Foxxhole and Lawrence’s Runteldat Banners (production companies).
In case you forgot, 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 (watch below!).
Anyway, Lawrence and Starz Entertainment returns for a fifth season of Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-up with back-to-back episodes on Friday, September 10 at 11 pm et/pt.
