The highly anticipated movie “Bad Boys 3” is reportedly currently under development. Although specific information is yet to be revealed, there are a lot of speculations floating online.
Ten years since it first became a box-office hit, Sony is said to include the movie among the roster of films slated to be released in 2017. Moreover, it has been hinted by original actors Will Smith and Martin Lawrence previously.
Collider reported that the former teased fans of the franchise about a sequel during his interview with Beats 1 Radio. He also shared that it may hit the big screen sometime within the next 12 to 16 months which may give credence to the year of its premiere.
Although the two actors have been teasing about “Bad Boys 3,” they have not confirmed yet if they will reprise their roles as detective Mike Lowrey and detective Marcus Burnett.
During Smith’s appearance in the red carpet for the premiere of his latest movie titled “Concussion,” he told Extra’s AJ Calloway, “I talked to Marty Mar a couple weeks ago… So we’re very seriously pushing forward on it… We’re in the 75% zone.” In case it does not happen, Smith may likely be one of the producers.
Moreover, Lawrence also previously shared that there have been talks with the original producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and the script is almost nearing completion with David Guggeinheim penning the narrative.
There are also no official words yet on who will take the helm as director. The first two films, “Bad Boys” in 1995 and “Bad Boys II” in 2003, had Michael Bay. It was his directorial debut and the project that helped launch his career in the industry.
Fans may also be delighted to find out that Sony allegedly has plans for a fourth movie which may arrive sometime in 2019.
