Bad boys bad boys, what you gonna do, what you gonna do when they come for you?
Well me personally, I don’t know what I’m going to do – but they are certainly coming for us as Bad Boys 3 has just been confirmed and given an official name and release date (January 2018), reports The Independent.
Oh, and as if this news wasn’t big enough for one afternoon, the Bad Boys For Life director has just confirmed that the film will definitely feature Will Smith and Martin Lawrence yet again.
Bad Boys For Life director, Joe Carnahan, said:
There’s only one Will Smith and one Martin Lawrence. You can’t replace those guys and I wouldn’t want to be involved if it wasn’t Will and Martin. They are that franchise.
So there’s no need to worry about any other actors taking their place.
Joe went on to explain a bit more about the movie, adding:
There’s a lot of funny shit in this movie, and there’s also a very mysterious, but tonally spot-on story that I think is kind of perfect for where we are in this day and age, where the guys are and reflectively, a very modern take on these guys.
It’s kind of what becomes of Bad Boys when they’re not boys anymore.
Joe went onto claim that the film has the ‘strongest script of any of those movies. Hands down’.
So let’s just sum this all up:
- Official name: Bad Boys For Life.
- Release Date: January 2018
- Will Smith and Martin Lawrence confirmed for the film.
- And it’s the best script so far.
If that’s not enough brilliant news for one day then I don’t know what is.
Now to impatiently wait for the trailer to drop…
