Update: Well it seems like the talk of a fourth film was certainly well meaning as it is being reported that Bad Boys For Life soared to number 1 at this weekend’s Martin Luther King weekend. The film which sees stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence return after a 17 year hiatus was met with a warm welcome from critics and audiences alike.
The threequel earned an estimated $59.1 million over the weekend and is looking at a $68.1 million haul over the four day holiday weekend. The movie took in an additional $38.6 million internationally for a grand total of $106.7 million worldwide.
(Original Post) Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back Ann better than ever as Bad Boys For Life is currently burning up the box office and receiving some great reviews from critics and fans alike. It’s like having old friends over and reliving great memories while making new ones.
With that in mind, it’s already being reported via THR that a fourth Bad Boys film is already in development at Sony and Smith and Lawrence will likely saddle up yet again. It’s funny that this is happening since it’s been over 17 years between Bad Boys 2 and this one.
Sony has tapped Chris Bremner, who is responsible for the screenplay of the threequel, to write the fourth film and its being said that Sony wants to get it going fast and not have a time delay like before. For numerous reasons including budget and finding the right script is what delayed the newest installment. Joe Carnahan was attached at one time but dropped out giving way to the directing duo of Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi. Carnahan still shares a writing credit though with Peter Craig receiving story by credit.
It’s also funny as the new movie’s tag line is “One More Time” but they ending leaves it wide open for another movie. Maybe the new tag line will be “Lets Keep it Going.”
Incidentally, the article also stated that Bremner is currently writing the script for National Treasure 3 for Disney.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to drop on Bad Boys 4!
