For those of you who are wishing for another White Chicks or Little Man, it might be good news to hear that the Wayans plan to get Pretty Ugly.

Marlon Wayans to Get Ugly

According to THR, DreamWorks Studios and Marlon Wayans are teaming up to deliver Pretty Ugly.

Wayans is set to develop, produce and star in the story about a handsome lifestyle mogul who wakes up hideously ugly because of a curse. As a result he must discover his inner beauty to save his company and win over the woman he loves.

Things get out of hand, however, when the mogul begins to dress like a white chick and uses a midget to handle the, uhh, smaller tasks. Ok, Ok, I made this last part up; but you never know when a Wayans steps on board.

It turns out that the arrival of Marlon Wayans gave fresh life to the project after it had been passed back and forth between DreamWorks and Disney. Wayans met DreamWorks exec John Fox on the set of Norbit and the two immediately discussed the basis of Pretty Ugly.

Sony Pictures' Little Man, in which Wayans stars, opened to more than $20 million on its first weekend. Wayans previously donned extreme character makeup in 2004's White Chicks for Sony, which went on to earn more than $100 million worldwide.

Though I find these films to fall in the 'stupid' genre, there is still a large enough audience for them.

Stay tuned for updates.
