Who Wants a Third BAD BOYS Movie?
Martin Lawrence. That’s who. And why shouldn’t he? Per his contract (at least with 2003’s BAD BOYS II), he made just as much as Will Smith, and making as much as Will Smith on anything is enough to put a smile on your face.
Lawrence recently sat down with MTV to talk about his newest movie, DEATH AT A FUNERAL, when the subject of a BAD BOYS III was brought up.
It’s real realistic. We’ve talked about ‘Bad Boys 3.’
The “we” there being Lawrence, Smith, and director Michael Bay, all of whom Lawrence confirms would be up for returning for a third outing. The fourth piece of this puzzle, though, is producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who hasn’t collaborated with Bay since BAD BOYS II.
Of course, I remember how long it felt between 1995’s BAD BOYS and its sequel. The eight-year jump from a second to a third film is fast approaching, and, with Bay handling TRANSFORMERS 3 at the moment, a third BAD BOYS films won’t be happening before 2011. However, with Lawrence just turning 45 and Smith turning 42 this year, the duo are anything but getting too old for this shit.
