Will Smith fans rejoice, because Columbia Pictures is hoping that the action star will be reuniting with Martin Lawrence for a third ‘Bad Boys’ movie. The studio tapped writer Peter Craig to write the new screenplay.
The studio also hopes that director Michael Bay would also sign on to make the trilogy. The first film helped start Bay’s career, and sell audiences on Smith as an action star.
The sequel grossed $138m in the United States. No one has signed on as a definite member of this project, but, everyone has expressed interest if a good story is written.
Personally, I find both Bad Boys movies to be extremely entertaining, excellent mindless fun action movies. So, if a third one drops, they’ve sold one ticket.
