Rumors of yet another Bad Boys sequel have been floating around for a long time, but there have been a lot of false starts and canceled plans.
However, in October, it was reported that producers had received a new draft of the script, and they were going to start working on the sequel in the new year. Still, there was no network confirmation so we couldn't know for sure if this was just another long-shot hope or a legitimate plan.
Turns out it's the real deal!
One of the Bad Boys stars has actually confirmed the third installment of the franchise is coming, and it's fair to say he's excited.
Martin Lawrence posted a picture of himself with Will Smith, with the caption "It's official. Bad Boys for life," finishing it off by saying "we back" in the tags.
Bad Boys 3 is finally happening, with both Lawrence and Smith reprising their roles in the hit buddy-cop movie.
This is exciting news, given that the last time the movie came close to realization it had a bunch of issues and was pushed back more than once.
The more it was delayed, the less likely the sequel became. Both actors were worried that it would interfere in their schedules, but it seems as though it has all been figured out and they will both be back to take down criminals together.
Chris Bremner (The Wedding Ringer) has written the new script, with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Snowfall) currently attached to direct.
The movie is slated to start production in early 2019, with a release date of January 17, 2020. Who knows if they will actually complete it on time, but here's hoping that they do!
