Benoit Debie, who has shot such stylish films as Spring Breakers and Enter the Void, will serve as director of photography.

The long-gestating third Bad Boys film, known as Bad Boys For Life, has tapped a directing duo and is eyeing an August production start. Meanwhile, the Bad Boys TV spin-off, featuring Gabrielle Union reprising her role from Bad Boys II, has cast Ghostbusters‘ Ernie Hudson as her father.

Update: The Hollywood Reporter says NBC has given a formal pilot order to this still-untitled show, and some new details about the plot have come to light. Those new details can be found at the bottom of our original article from October 2017, which begins below.
Plans for Bad Boys 3 may have stalled, but there’s may still be some more action yet in the form of a new Bad Boys TV spin-off. The planned show will focus on Gabrielle Union‘s character from Bad Boys II, an undercover operative with the DEA. While it’s doubtful Will Smith or Martin Lawrence‘s characters will show up, anyone looking for a Bad Boys fix might be keen to give the show a shot.

A year or two ago, the future of Bad Boys was looking extra bright with two sequels scheduled for release and writer-director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) at the helm. But he left the director’s chair on Bad Boys For Life, which was once planned to come out this year, then postponed to January 2018, and then scheduled for November of next year before its release date was scrapped altogether. Most Bad Boys 3 news has been disheartening lately, especially franchise star Martin Lawrence saying recently, “I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
Now the producer of the series, Jerry Bruckheimer, has given fans hope. Below, find out what Jerry Bruckheimer says about the hopeful future for Bad Boys 3.
Michael Bay‘s commentaries are great entertainment. He never disappoints with his tracks. He’ll tell you when someone wasn’t doing their job. He’ll tell you when he had to yell. And he’ll always tell you when he was “the first” to use a new camera, government aircraft, or whatever super-expensive new toy he got to play with.
If you want to know how Michael Bay became Michael Bay, these commentaries give you a good idea of how he reached his level of success. While not included in this month’s recommendations, it should go without saying you should listen to the Armageddon and Pearl Harbor audio commentaries. Ben Affleck is on fire in both. The Pearl Harbor track is hours of Affleck making Josh Hartnett giggle.
Below, check out our five Michael Bay commentary recommendations.

Since the Transformers franchise is based on a toy created by Hasbro, the movies themselves are basically giant commercials meant to sell action figures to kids and cars to adults. But even beyond that obvious use of product placement, there is still much more shameless and egregious wedging in of brand name products right in front of Michael Bay‘s camera.
Funnily enough, Michael Bay was a commercial director before he became the blockbuster filmmaker who loves to blow shit up on the big screen. Therefore, it should come as no surprise to see that all of Michael Bay’s movies are full of product placement, and a new video attempts to point out every single instance of such commercial activity in a new video.
Watch the round-up of product placement in Michael Bay movies below and try not to buy stuff because of it. Read More »

Without question, one of my favorite parts of my job is the Michael Bay stories. If somebody has worked with him, they usually have a good story to tell. Few filmmakers, if any, direct and act like Michael Bay. He’s one in a million, which is maybe why his movies tend to make hundreds of millions of dollars.
Someone else who has some great stories to tell about Michael Bay? Michael Bay. The filmmaker (and huge dog lover) usually discusses his work and collaborators with candor. His commentaries, for example, are highly entertaining. After listening to all of them and devouring his movie’s extensive bonus features – and having my mind consumed by Bayhem – I decided it was time to compile a list of the best Michael Bay stories…as told by Michael Bay.
