Bad Boys 3

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.

Bad Boys TV Spin-off

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.

bad boys III update

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.

Bad Boys 3

Bad Boys franchise fans eagerly awaiting the reunion of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for Bad Boys 3, aka Bad Boys for Life, recently had some bad news delivered to them. The sequel was set for release by Sony Pictures on November 9, 2018, but the studio pulled it from the calendar completely while shuffling their release schedule around for the next couple years.

Pulling Bad Boys 3 from the calendar left us little hope that we’d ever see this sequel get made, especially since it had already been pushed back several times before. Unfortunately, our suspicions have been confirmed because now Martin Lawrence is casting doubt on whether the project will get made at all. Read More »

bad boys 3 release date

The game of release dates can be a tricky thing. On one level, the studios love to lay out their slates for the next five years in advance, promising an impressive line-up of titles to make sure everyone knows that they’re keeping busy. But on another level, this can sometimes backfire – if a movie needs a little more time to marinate in the development process or if something simply doesn’t come together at the right time, the ensuing schedule changes can be a bad look. It’s not a sign that things are necessarily going wrong, but it does get everyone to wonder what’s going on.

So now we have to wonder what’s going on with Joe Carnahan‘s Bad Boys For Life, the third entry in the Bad Boys series, which has been delayed ten months while the also-in-the-works Bad Boys 4 has apparently fallen off the schedule altogether.

Spider-Man Homecoming Sequel Release Date

The reception for the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (watch it here) appears to have been exactly what Sony Pictures was hoping for, because today they announced a release date for the sequel. That’s right, even though Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t arrive until July of next year, Sony Pictures is so confident in their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that they’ve staked out a date in the summer of 2019.

That’s not the only summer sequel release date news from Sony Pictures either, because the placement of the Spider-Man Homecoming sequel in the summer of 2019 has resulted in the studio shifting their release of Bad Boys 4, the sequel to a sequel that hasn’t even started shooting yet.

Find out both the Bad Boys 4 and Spider-Man Homecoming sequel release date after the jump. Read More »
