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.
