A third Bad Boys movie is apparently on the way, just as soon as there’s a gap in Will Smith’s busy schedule to film it.

However, the director of the first two instalments of the franchise, Michael Bay, won’t be returning for Bad Boys 3.

Because Bay will likely be making awful Transformers sequels until the end of time, Sony have started looking elsewhere and Joe Carnahan looks like the most likely candidate to take the reigns of the new Bad Boys film.

The Grey, A-Team and Narc director is reportedly in talks to brush up David Guggenheim’s screenplay, and then potentially direct the film.

It’s been 12 years since Bad Boys II, and a whopping 20 years since the first movie, and Sony are apparently moving quickly to find the next gap in Will Smith’s schedule so they can reunite him with Martin Lawrence at last!
