If you remember a couple of months ago, 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, as of today's news it seems that we were right- officially. Lawrence confirmed that Columbia Pictures is under way with the new film, and we discovered they have commissioned writer Peter Craig to begin work on a new screenplay.
Also as Lawrence and Smith had hoped for it seems the studio is close to signing on Michael Bay (of Transformers fame) and producer Jerry Bruckheimer back on board, both who were involved in the previous two films.
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.

We also discovered that even his old partner in the film Tommy Lee Jones- who many thought would never do anther MIB film again- is back too.
As rumors would have it, and as we discovered several months ago, Smith had agreed to do the film, but the only real uncertainty was with Jones. After many conversations with the studio execs many speculated that Josh Brolin was going to be a replacement.
At the moment, little is known about the plot of Men In Black 3, which Sony will be aiming to get into cinemas by May 30, 2011, but we imagine it’ll involve Agent Jay (Smith) and Kay (Jones) getting in way over their heads with some angry alien beasties.
We also hear that this film, like every other film hitting theaters now, will be in glorious 3D.
More as this story develops.
