Gabrielle Union Set To Star As Lead In ‘Bad Boys’ TV Spin-Off

Published: Wednesday 25th Oct 2017 by Sam

As Gabrielle Union puts ‘Being Mary Jane’ to bed, details on her next gig are coming to light.

The actress looks set to front a TV spin-off of the ‘Bad Boys’ franchise.

Full story below…

According to Deadline, the untitled project will see Union reprise her role of Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett from 2003’s ‘Bad Boys II.’ 

Viewers of that flick will recall that she was the sister of Detective Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and the love interest of Detective Mike Lowrey (Will Smith).

And development on the TV project is picking up pace.

Currently being pitched to TV entities, there is reportedly strong interest from multiple networks and a major pick-up is considered more of a “when”/”who” rather than “if.”

Though little is known about the synopsis being touted, additional excitement is likely due to the involvement of Jerry Bruckheimer – the producer of both ‘Bad Boys’ movies.

One has to wonder how, if at all, this will tie in to the much-discussed ‘Bad Boys 3’ movie. Should Union be involved with that, we imagine there could be some very cool synchronization.

Your thoughts?

    Not interested. It’s not Bad Boys without Martin and Will, and the latter actor is fighting to rebuild his status as a movie star, so I don’t see him agreeing to a long-term TV deal. Stop going back & forth and just trust that it’s the right thing to give us another movie. Nobody’s looking for a TV version.

    I doubt this will get picked up. Seems like the production budget would be very high with the action scenes and paying for 3 name-recognized veteran type stars as lead. You can’t just use Gabrielle Union without casting two male veteran stars to play as lead because the plot is about the two male leads.

      Thats why its called a “spin-off” this show could literally be about anything and not require a high budget.

        @Ronnie I get all that but a spin-off always has elements of the original movie plot. This is an action movie so they are not going to extract a character out of an action movie and make it a drama. If they were going that direction they would not use the character from the movie. Thus, back to my original opinion…the production budget would be to high to pull this off.

      JASMINE see you don’t understand the industry, if multiple networks are wanting to have this on their network it will most certainly be picked up by one of them. So your doubt is null and void.

    Gabrielle Union keep hustling, D. Wade is getting older and may soon retire. Sad about Mary Jane going away that was a good show!
