Will Smith and Martin Lawrence Confirm Bad Boys 3

We’ve been hearing about a possible Bad Boys 3 for a long time now. At one point, Sony even set release dates for third and fourth installments in the action franchise. But for various reasons, it hasn’t been able to find life.

Now they’re ready to give it another shot. And while it’s hard to get excited for any fan of the series who’s been waiting so long for Bad Boys 3 to happen, this time it’s a little different. Instead of the occasional news update hinting at the possibility of a sequel, this time there’s star power behind it. The stars of the first two movies, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, took to social media to confirm that the movie is officially happening. The pair met up today to record a short video sharing the news, which you can watch below.

Bad Boys II

It was recently revealed that The Grey and Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan will be making a re-imagining of the hit Indonesian action flick The Raid with Frank Grillo starring. This in addition to working on the screenplays for both X-Force and the Uncharted video game movie.

All of these projects led many to wonder when Carnahan would get to Bad Boys 3, also known as Bad Boys for Life, which he has been attached to since June of 2015. We now have an answer to this question. Carnahan has walked away from the long in development trilogy-maker, leaving Sony to find a new director.

Sad Dumbo

Disney’s live-action adaptations of their animated classics have been known to tout a pretty stellar cast. While Tim Burton‘s Dumbo has been in pre-production, there have been reports that the studio has been in talks with Will Smith, who would have had a starring role in the film. Yes, talks between the two have broken off, and as a result it puts the actor in the position to star in Bad Boys For Life. More on the story below.

Bad Boys II

We’ve been hearing about the development of Bad Boys 3 for quite a while now. Michael Bay directed the first two movies in the franchise, both of which starred Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, but we found out back in June that Sony was actually in talks with The Grey, Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team, and Narc director Joe Carnahan to re-write a script penned by David Guggenheim and possibly direct the movie instead of Bay, who’s thought to be too busy with his upcoming 13 Hours and the Transformers franchise.

Now Sony has announced a release date for Bad Boys 3. But even more surprising is that they also have an early release date reserved for Bad Boys 4, as well.

Love It Or Hate It, Columbia Pictures Developing ‘Bad Boys 3’

Bad Boys

The trades are reporting that Columbia Pictures is now developing Bad Boys III. The studio has hired Peter Craig to write the screenplay with no promise that director Michael Bay, or stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will return. The plan is simply to get a script done, and if it’s good enough, eventually, everyone will agree to reunite and make the movie.

The original 1995 Bad Boys was Bay’s first movie and didn’t leave too much of a huge mark on the cinema world — it received mediocre reviews and only scored $66 Million at the box office. Bad Boys II was made when Michael Bay was a hell of a lot more Michael Bay-ier and came with all the spectacular bangs and booms that netted it a more respectable $138 Million box office take. Consensus on the movies seems to be fairly split: you either think they’re a lot of popcorn fun, or you hate them with a passion. Considering the current star of Will Smith and how much money Bay’s movies make (not to mention his desire to step away from giant robots), this could actually make some sense.

Top 10 Buddy Cop Movies
space
Empress Eve   |  @   |

Starsky & HutchThe “buddy cop” film genre was a staple of the 1980s when the likes of Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks, and Arnold Schwarzenegger jumped on board to make these action-comedies, which, no doubt, helped propel them to superstardom.

There seems to be different interpretations as to what categorizes a film as a “buddy cop” movie. Typically, it’s an action-comedy with the improbable partnering of two cops, though at times one law enforcement officer paired with a civilian will suffice (because, hey, it’s just that much more “zany” that way). But there’s certain aspects we’ve come to expect from these movies: two polar opposites – who’ve somehow stepped out of line on the job – get vindictively matched up by their curmudgeony superior who wants to teach them a lesson and have them catch the bad guys in the process. If there’s only one cop (which, I personally don’t really consider to be a true buddy cop scenerio), that means he’ll be forced to seek assistance by someone who’s more a hindrance than a help (this is usually the “outrageous comedy” variety).

Of course, whoever the partners may be, they’re usually both stubborn, unyielding, and prefer to work alone, so they’ll immediately butt heads – that makes for good comedy (“whacky” even). But in the end, something like having a near death experience and mutually causing millions of dollars’ worth of collateral damage will bond the unlikely duo against the greater forces of evil and in the span of one movie, turn them from adversaries to life-long friends.

There’s been a slew of these films in the last few decades, most just a carbon copy of the next, so here’s a look at the Top 10 Buddy Cop Movies.
