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.

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 »

Briefly: People have wondered for years why all involved haven’t pulled the trigger on Bad Boys 3 — it seems like such an obvious move in a studio culture that is all about sequels. But this one has, in the past, required the willingness of two stars and a director. That complicates the process.
Now that there’s been a little power structure change at Sony, installing Michael De Luca as production co-president with a mandate to up the quality of the studio’s tentpole films, it looks like that sequel will happen. A writer is almost signed, but that’s just the first step in the process. Read more below. Read More »

As the race for the year’s most coveted trophies came to a close with this weekend’s Oscars ceremony, another much less prestigious awards competition was just getting started. Nominations have been announced for the 32nd Razzie Awards, handed out to the “worst achievements in film” each year.
Leading the 2012 list is Adam Sandler, whose involvement in Jack and Jill, Bucky Larson, and Just Go With It earned him a record-breaking eleven Razzie nominations. That’s more than twice as many as the previous record holder, Norbit star Eddie Murphy, received in 2007. Other standouts include Nicolas Cage, Ken Jeong, Sarah Palin, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, and The Hangover Part II. Read the full list of nominees after the jump.

Bad Boys was a breakout hit for Will Smith, Martin Lawrence and director Michael Bay, and the sequel Bad Boys II was so deliberately outrageous that it was almost a total parody of the very idea of an action movie. After the excess of the second film, a third chapter seems not only superfluous, but highly unlikely. How do you follow that?
But perhaps it isn’t so unlikely. We’ve known for a while that Columbia Pictures had Peter Craig writing a script. Michael Bay has indicated that he’s willing to return, should the issue of money be figured out — he and Will Smith cost a lot these days. Now Martin Lawrence (who doesn’t command such a high price of late) is saying that Bad Boys III is definitely happening. Read More »
