It was recently confirmed that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence would reprise their roles as “Bad Boys” movie characters.
By sharing a reunion video on social media with the caption “Everything’S ABOUT THAT TIME,” the upcoming film signalled that it was on track. Smith stated on film as he drove to Lawrence’s residence that he had an important announcement to make. Isn’t it about that time? After unlocking the door, the 57-year-old comic asked his co-star, to which Will replied, “It’s official, you guys! Sweetheart, the Bad Boys are here to stay.
Martin and Will joke near the end of the video that because their most recent film was only their third, they shouldn’t have dubbed it Bad Boys For Life.
“We shouldn’t have called it that,” Will continued, raising four fingers. “But this is Bad Boys 4!” he said, pointing to the number three. It’s official! Martin went on to say, “We did four… but Bad Boys For Life is still there!
Sony Pictures has confirmed to Variety that Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will return to direct the untitled sequel from a story by Chris Bremner.
In 2020, 25 years after the first Bad Boys film, the directors also directed the sequel, Bad Boys for Life, starring Smith and Lawrence as Miami-Dade cops Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett once more.
Thus, Jerry Bruckheimer, Smith for Westbrook, Doug Belgrad, and Chad Oman will produce the untitled sequel, while Lawrence, James Lassiter, Mike Stenson, Barry Waldman, and Jon Mone will serve as executive producers.
