Its a rumour that has not gone away for a few years. First there was a reboot, then a TV Show, then confirmation that a Part 3 and 4 will be filmed but with a new duo……but original star Will Smith has confirmed that there will be a Bad Boys 3 and he and Martin Lawrence are definitely returning in the lead roles.
“I hadn’t seen him for about two years, and we just looked at each other. We hugged and in that moment we both knew we were making another Bad Boys. So we’re definitely doing another one.” he confirmed in a recent interview which at least shows that discussions are in place for a whole new action packed adventure for Mike and Marcus.
The original is a 90’s action classic and while the 2003 sequel was released to mixed reviews and was heavily mocked in the brilliant Hot Fuzz, it still earned mega bucks at the box office, so a third film is a no brainer for the studio.
Bad Boys 3 is currently scheduled for February 17th, 2017. Bad Boys 4 on July 3rd, 2019. If the fourth film will still star Smith and Lawrence though is another matter?
