It’s been a little while since we’ve heard anything about Bad Boys 3, the long-developing new installment in the Michael Bay franchise that would — hopefully — reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for another action-packed and hilarious outing. It looks like Sony really wants to get Bad Boys 3 up and running again, and they’ve attracted a director who might be able to pull it off.
Bad Boys 3
Rumors of 'Bad Boys 3' have swirled for years -- the last we heard, it was looking for a writer, though there was no word if stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, and director Michael Bay would come back for another outing -- but it finally looks like things might be moving in the right direction. At least, if you think that Lawrence returning for more action is the right direction. (Hint: it is).
Though it's been rumored for a while, Sony has made steps to get a 'Bad Boys 3' off the ground and is looking to hire a writer to pen a third entry in the franchise. That doesn't mean that Will Smith, Michael Bay or Martin Lawrence will return, but it's a start.
