The ‘Bad Boys’ are back!
Eleven years after the second instalment of the franchise hit theaters, star Martin Lawrence has confirmed that a third film is currently in the works.
During a promo stop on the Conan show yesterday (to promote new show ‘Partners’), the funny-man revealed that Jerry Bruckheimer - who produced the film’s 1995 original and 2003 follow-up – is hard at work on ‘Bad Boys 3′.
The news is being welcomed with open arms by the film’s legion of loyal fans, who’ve been pining for another instalment starring Lawrence and Will Smith – who play detectives Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowry respectively.
And while a coup for the franchise’s fans, the film – at least on paper – looks set to net Laurence and Smith a hefty payday. For, the first amassed $141,407,024 at the box office, and its sequel almost doubled that figure generating $273,339,556. Needless to say, it’s no surprise that a third movie has ample allure.
