After years of delays, doubts and rampant speculation it has finally been confirmed that a third instalment of Bad Boys is on the way.
Martin Lawrence and Will Smith will return for the third instalment, with That Hashtag Show revealing exclusive plot details for the sequel:
“The film will see Lawrence’s character Marcus Burnett working as a private eye after a falling out with Smith’s Mike Lowery, who is going through a midlife crisis as a bachelor who finally wants to mature, all while dealing with a new a young and cocky partner who is loyal to Lowery but that loyalty is not reciprocated, and finds bond with Burnett when he returns to the fray.
“Lowery and Burnett are brought together again when a lean, mean, skilled, Albanian mercenary with a vendetta puts a death order on Lowery and Burnett for the death of his brother. Now the two must work together once again to bring him down. The film’s budget is set at over $100 million so expect loads of car chases and explosions.”
There’s no word yet on whether Michael Bay will return to direct or if Gabrielle Union will reprise her role from Bad Boys II but, after over a decade in development hell, this is good news.
Will Smith is set to be a very busy boy in the next few years with another, hopefully better, Suicide Squad movie to come along with Bright 2 and the cloning sci-fi thriller Gemini Man.
Starring alongside Clive Owen and based on a script from The Truman Show writer Andrew Niccol, loaded recently spoke to that particular duo about that film and much more besides.
