Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence are heading to the big screen together for the first time.

The stand up comedians-turned-movie stars will star in a comedy based on two popular TV characters they each created in the 90s, Foxx's 'Wanda' of "In Living Color" fame and Lawrence's 'Sheneneh' of "Martin" fame, a source close to Foxxhole Productions confirmed to TV One Access.

Reportedly, Screen Gems has acquired the rights to the film and the TV One Access source confirms that Foxx is also writing the screenplay.

During this year's BET Awards hosted by Foxx, the duo performed a skit called "Skank Robbers" to overwhelmingly positive reviews from fans and critics alike. This feedback likely propelled the actors to make a movie about the two pseudo female characters.

The film's storyline will reportedly be similar to the skit from the BET awards with 'Sheneneh and Wanda' scheming as modern day bank robbers.

According to reports, the film will be a joint production by Foxx's Foxxhole Productions and Lawrence's Runteldat Productions.
