Last year we learned that super producer Jerry Bruckheimer was working on scripts for a few franchises including Beverly Hills Cop 4 and Top Gun 2. In the same discussions it was also mentioned that there would possibly be a Bad Boys 3 and a Pirates of the Caribbean 5. That was the last we heard of Bad Boys 3 until Wednesday night.
Martin Lawrence was on “Conan” Wednesday night and Conan flat out asked him if there was going to be a Bad Boys 3 movie. Martin shocked everyone with his answer,
“I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it’s real; they’re working on the script, they’re getting close, and it all looks good.”
SO IS WILL SMITH CONFIRMED?
That’s the big question and Will is the bigger star. Although Lawrence didn’t come outright and say that Smith had confirmed, he hinted as such. When Conan asked to make a cameo appearance in the movie, Marin replied,
“I will mention to Will Smith and Jerry Bruckheimer that Conan wants a cameo in the movie,”
My interpretation of that is that Smith is on board, or at least Jerry Bruckheimer and Martin think so.
Although the Bad Boys films received bad reviews, the two installments grossed over $414 Million. Martin’s last movie was 2011’s “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son” and Smith’s last starring role was in 2013’s disappointing “After Earth”. Another Bad Boy’s movie could be just what these two need to boost their big screen careers again.
