Even though it took a very long time to get Bad Boys For Life, AKA Bad Boys 3, off the ground, there are already plans for Bad Boys 4. Sony is said to be developing the project with hopes that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence return for yet another outing as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett. Is there anything even left to say in this franchise? Maybe not. But Sony is going to try anyway.

Three things are essential to the Bad Boys franchise – or at least, they used to be. One is an often alarming cruelty – a disregard for anyone, and anything, all in the name of a near-sociopathic attempt at coolness. The second is what is commonly referred to as Bayhem – the wild, swirling, often incoherent action beats created by director Michael Bay. The third, and perhaps most essential, is the banter – and bickering – between leads Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
What makes Bad Boys for Life, the third and presumably final chapter in this series, so special is the jettisoning of the first two elements while embracing the third. Bay is no longer in the director’s chair, and the overall nastiness – which was ramped up to the nth degree in Bad Boys II – is nowhere to be found. But that interplay between Smith and Lawrence is ever-present, and endlessly entertaining.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence pledged to be bad boys for life, but that’s a hard promise to keep when retirement is waiting just around the corner. “It’s time we be Good Men,” Lawrence tells Smith in the new trailer for Bad Boys for Life, the long-awaited third entry in the outsized action series. “Who wants to sing that song?” Smith responds belligerently. Touché.

The Bad Boys are officially back together. The long-gestating Bad Boys 3 received the green light from Sony last month with Will Smith on board, but a big question mark remained around franchise co-star Martin Lawrence, who remained a hold-out for as long as a Bad Boys 3 had been rumored. But now, Lawrence’s return is seemingly confirmed, with the actor set to reprise his role as Detective Marcus Burnett in Bad Boys For Life.
