‘Bad Boys 3’ Update: Joe Carnahan To Direct; Will Smith Will Come As Actor Or Producer OR Both!
“Bad Boys 3” is all ramped up to to hit theaters on Feb. 17, 2017, but the main cast of the movie is still in jeopardy. Chairman of Sony’s Motion Picture, Tom Rothman confirmed that “Bad Boys” franchise will have two sequels in the coming future. Read on for more details.
“Bad Boys 3” is set to come out in 2017 and “Bad Boys 4” in 2019. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Rothman at least is greenlighting movies. Sony was left crippled for much of the winter after falling prey to a massive cyber attack. Adding insult to injury, the studio, which has lacked proven franchises outside of “Spider-Man,” has suffered a miserable 2015 at the box office.”
Looks like, Rothman’s concern is not Will Smith’s comeback but actually giving life again to the movies which have proved beneficial for Sony in the past. Along with “Bad Boys” franchise, “Jumanji Reboot” has also seen the light of the day.
But if you are “Bad Boys” franchise fan then you know that Detective Mike Lowrey has to be played by Smith. One cannot imagine, “Bad Boys 3” to be a success without the duo of Smith, who play Mike Lowrey and Martin Lawrence, who plays Detective Marcus Burnett.
According to Movie Pilot, Sony Pictures is actually waiting for Smith to finish “Suicide Squad” so that he could turn his attention for “Bad Boys 3 & 4.”
Joe Carnaham who has been given the directorial seat and will have a lot of say in the script of the movie says, “I think I speak for all of us when I say that we are more than ready for the next chapter from Mike Looooowrey and Marcus Burnett.”
Jerry Bruckheimer will be the producer of “Bad Boy 3” and script will be by David Guggenheim.
