We just discovered that it seems our speculations were right a couple of months ago. If you remember, we placed a story stating that we heard Hollywood execs were trying their best to bring back Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for a third installment of the Bad Boys films action franchise.
Well, it seems that we were right, and that Hollywood has taken the first step towards that goal. We have just learned that Columbia Pictures have commissioned writer Peter Craig to begin work on a new screenplay for Bad Boys 3.
We have to state that although the film project is still in its early stages, Columbia Pictures hope to entice Smith and Lawrence back to the series as Miami, Florida police detectives, bringing Transformers director Michael Bay and producer Jerry Bruckheimer back on board, all of which was confirmed by Hollywood Reporter this morning..
The original Bad Boys release hit cinemas in 1995, grossing a conservative $141 million worldwide, while Bad Boys 2, the sequel released eight years later, was a global box office smash, taking profits of $273 million.
