After years of speculation and delays, it has been made official. Actors Will Smith, 50, and Martin Lawrence, 53, are teaming up again again to bring us Bad Boys 3.
The actor and comedian took to Instagram to confirm the next instalment of the popular buddy cop action film, Bad Boys, is actually going to happen.
“It’s official. Bad Boys for Life,” the actor wrote as the caption, using the hashtags: #teammartymar, #badboysforlife and the ever fitting tag, #weback.
The two talented stars reunited in Santa Monica as Lawrence, 53, took to Instagram on Thursday to share a snap from their meeting while confirming they are returning to their highly-popular action franchise.
This comes just weeks after Variety reported Smith is on board to return as Miami detective Mike Lowrey from 1995’s Bad Boys and the 2003 sequel Bad Boys II.
Smith also took to Instagram to celebrate the forthcoming release of what he dubbed, Bad Boys 3.
Still, according to CinemaBlend, the film will be titled Bad Boys For Lifeand it’ll hit theaters in January 2020. There’s no word yet on whether or not Bad Boys For Life will also reunite Lawrence and Smith with their on-screen loves, Theresa Randle and Gabrielle Union, but we hope so.
Bad Boys II dropped 15 years ago and grossed nearly $300 worldwide, so a third film seemed like a no brainer, especially given Smith and Lawrence’s star power. Since teaming up for the first Bad Boys film in 1995, both Smith and Lawrence have gone on to build wildly successful careers, both on the big and small screen. Smith, who is one of the most successful movie stars in the world, has several upcoming projects, including Suicide Squad 2 and Bright 2, while Lawrence is currently in the midst of a comedy tour.
