Just when you thought Martin Lawrence and Will Smith may not be reuniting for a new Bad Boys film, it turns out Sony is still pushing forward. Yesterday it was shared by The Hollywood Reporter that the currently titled, Bad Boys for Life, has two new directors eyeing to join the project. Fans get ready because everything appears to still be happening. Both Lawrence and Smith have confirmed they are interested in doing another Bad Boys together.
Sony is taking another shot at making a Bad Boys sequel and is in early negotiations with directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to helm, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The filmmakers would take on Bad Boys for Life, which would reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for a third chapter in the buddy-cop film series. The duo played Miami police detectives in the first two installments, which were directed by Michael Bay. The pair of films, released in 1995 and 2003, took in a collective $414.7 million worldwide. A third Bad Boys effort has been in development for years, with Joe Carnahan most recently attached to direct before exiting last March.
Do you think it’s time for one more Bad Boys?
