They’re back!! Martin Lawrence confirmed that the film, Bad Boys 3, is in development. During an interview on TBS’ Conan, he stated “I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer (producer) yesterday and he said it’s real, they’re working on the script, they’re getting close, and it all looks good”.
Bruckheimer discussed the difficulties of making Bad 3. He said “It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will Smith is off doing two movies. And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, ‘Well, maybe it’s not the time for this’ And then, Ride Along came out and was a big hit, and now they’re all excited to make the movie, but Will is off doing something else. It’s just trying to get everybody together to make it. But, we’re working on the script. We have a lot of faith and hope that we’ll do it.”
So the question is, will Smith join Bad Boys 3? Well, he has not released any statement confirming or denying his participation in the film. But, really, how can you have Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) without Mike Lowry (Smith)?
