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.

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.
