After being absent from the big screen for 13 years, Detective Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) were initially scheduled to return next June. Unfortunately, last week we heard Sony had pushed Bad Boys For Life to 2018. The reason for the delay? According to director Joe Carnahan (The Grey), the decision was made partly because of scheduling.
Below, Joe Carnahan discusses the new Bad Boys 3 release date and what to expect from the sequel.

A third Bad Boys film has been in development since at least 2009 and every year or so has brought a fresh news item about behind-the-scenes conversations and negotiations and ever-shifting release dates. The project took on new life last June when director Joe Carnahan was hired to replace Michael Bay, which was quickly followed by news of Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4 arriving in 2017 and 2019. While Carnahan has continued to tease the film on social media, updates have been scarce since then.
That brings us to right now: it seems that Bad Boys 3 has a title that isn’t Bad Boys 3 and a release date that isn’t the previously announced release date. It’s not much, but hey, momentum.

Many brave souls have set out to make a film adaptation of the popular video game series Uncharted, and each of them has fallen by the wayside. To put it in terms that those who have played the games will understand, a number of writers and directors have tried to pillage this particular ancient city, only to be repelled by a bunch of irritating blue guys. Uncharted is already cinematic and character-driven in game form (it’s essentially a modern Indiana Jones riff!), but it’s been taking filmmakers out of the picture left and right.
The latest creative to bravely volunteer for Uncharted duty is Joe Carnahan, who has been brought on to write (but not direct) the project. Does anyone want to make a wager about if he’ll come out of the jungle alive?

Joe Carnahan hasn’t been confirmed to direct Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4 yet, but after the director posted some pre-viz for one of the sequels on his twitter feed, it’s safe to presume he’s directing those Sony films. A year ago, Carnahan became attached to direct another action movie, Motorcade, but he’s just left that long-in-development DreamWorks project. Read the entire Joe Carnahan exits Motorcade story below.

About three and a half years ago, Bruce Willis became attached to Five Against a Bullet, an action thriller formerly set up at Columbia Pictures from Transformers and G.I. Joe franchise producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura. Then just last year, The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan came on board the project. However, one of them has fallen away.
Joe Carnahan is still attached to direct the film, but it appears Bruce Willis (who may or may not have been fired from Woody Allen’s next movie) is no longer part of the movie. The film is also now set up at the new Suretone Pictures banner, a venture from former Geffen Records president Jordan Schur. Find out more about Five Against a Bullet below! Read More »

Fans of Michael Bay‘s action comedy franchise Bad Boys got some good news last week when Sony Pictures slated both Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4 for release in 2017 and 2019. However, fans may want to keep their hype in check, because their favorite parts of the film series aren’t locked in place for those movies yet.
As of now, fans were counting on seeing Will Smith in Bad Boys 3, and the studio knows he will be involved in some capacity. But there’s a chance that he might only produce the films, and not actually star alongside Martin Lawrence. However, he could just as easily end up doing both. It simply hasn’t been determined what the Suicide Squad star wants to do yet. Read More »
