Samuel L. Jackson may not have anticipated the rapturous public response to him declaring, “I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!” in the Snakes On A Plane trailer, but given RuPaul’s self-conscious approach to catchphrase creation—and, really, punny wordplay in general—it’s safe to assume that he is very intentionally crafting a line parodying Jackson’s famously profane outburst as we speak.

You see, on the eve of the premiere of a new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Drag Race parent company World Of Wonder has sent out a press release announcing Drag Queens On A Plane, a full-length scripted comedy film starring RuPaul and as-yet-unnamed queens from the Drag Race galaxy of stars. The description reads: “On the maiden voyage of Glamazonian Airways, RuPaul has packed the flight with drag’s finest. But some evil trolls who don’t believe in loving yourself are on board and will do their damnedest to bring the plane down. Can drag’s greatest queens thwart the terrorists’ evil plan?”


Sounds about as silly as all of RuPaul’s other movies (which, to be clear, is not an insult, simply a statement of fact). The press release also notes an alternate title for the film, There Are Too Many Drag Queens On This Mothertucking Plane, which could very well serve as the catchphrase mentioned above. We should have known that Ru would be on top of it.
