Bad Boys 3 is finally gearing up to head into production with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence returning to reprise their roles from Michael Bay’s previous films. But with filming not set to begin until early next year, the release date for the long-developing sequel has been delayed yet again, this time to 2018. On the slightly more positive side of things, the sequel has a new title, and it’s one that should earn the approval of Bad Boys fans.
Sony has been trying to get an Uncharted movie made for years now, but despite the revolving door of directing and writing talent, the studio has been unable to get the video game adaptation off the ground. When Zero Dark Thirty scribe Mark Boal was hired back in 2014, it seemed like Sony was on the right track, but it looks like they’ve gone back to the ol’ drawing board (again), tapping Bad Boys 3 director Joe Carnahan to deliver a new screenplay.
This weekend Marvel fans across the world were able to binge watch and enjoy all of Daredevil Season 2 on Netflix. It was another solid season of Marvel television, and, with the introductions of Punisher and Elektra, an impressive step forward for...
The Dark Tower opening in January felt like a bad sign, given that the first month of the year is typically a dumping ground for less-promising films. Inspiring a healthy bit of optimism, Sony has pushed the release back a month to February 2017, while also shifting dates for similarly long-gestating films Bad Boys 3 and Barbie — the latter of which remains without a director, so we’ll see how long that release date sticks.
Last summer we learned that Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) was interested in directing Bad Boys 3, which Sony has scheduled for a 2017 release. He was never officially confirmed for the job, but these new pre-visualization images he shared on Twitter are all the confirmation you need that Carnahan is behind the wheel on the long-developing sequel.
Mark Millar’s stylish and violent graphic novels have proven to be ripe source material for film adaptations, from Kick-Ass to Kingsman: The Secret Service, but there’s one project that’s had a tougher time getting off the ground. Nemesis was initially set up at 20th Century Fox with Tony Scott attached to direct, but following the director’s untimely death, the property entered development limbo — until now.
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.
'Stretch' has gone through a bit of a rough period. The film, directed by Joe Carnahan and produced by Jason Blum, was originally set for a theatrical premiere back in March, but Universal Studios decided to drop it from its release slate, choosing to utilize other creative methods. Now, with an Amazon and iTunes release on October 7, and a VOD release on October 14, the first 'Stetch' trailer has debuted online.
'Strech', the new action-thriller starring Chris Pine, Jessica Alba and Patrick Wilson, was scheduled to be released in just two months (on March 21), but now it won't be released at all. Universal Pictures abruptly pulled the plug on the film at the last minute after they balked at the $20-40 million needed to properly promote the film. If you know 'Stretch' director Joe Carnahan at all, you know he wasn't happy.
Joe Carnahan is moving from wolves in the wild to soldiers in Boston for his next prospective project: an adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel 'Devils in Exile,' re-titled 'Sugar Bandits' for the big screen.
