Jerry Bruckheimer talks Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3

Apr. 22, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

Last week Jerry Bruckheimer gave an update on BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, and now Bruckheimer has revealed what's going on with two other franchises involving the producer: BAD BOYS and NATIONAL TREASURE.

In an interview with Collider, Jerry Bruckheimer says BAD BOYS 3 is still in the works, but the reason why it hasn't happened yet is very simple: bad timing.

It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies. And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, ‘Well, maybe it’s not the time for this.’ And then, Ride Along came out and was a big hit, and now they’re all excited to make the movie, but Will is off doing something else. It’s just trying to get everybody together to make it. But, we’re working on the script. We have a lot of faith and hope that we’ll do it.

David Guggenheim (SAFE HOUSE, STOLEN) is penning the script for BAD BOYS 3, however it still sounds like it's going to be a while before a third film actually happens.

It's a little surprising NATIONAL TREASURE 3 hasn't been made yet considering how well the first two films performed at the box office, however Jon Turteltaub is hard at work on the script for the third movie, and Jerry Bruckheimer told Collider Turteltaub just recently finished writing the first act.

Those are the hardest movies to make because they’re all based on clues. It’s so difficult to work them out. But, we got a first act in [on Friday], and Jon [Turteltaub] was very excited about it and I’m very excited about it. Hopefully, the first act will lead into the second act and the third act, and we’ll get this thing going.

Which third movie would you rather see: BAD BOYS 3 or NATIONAL TREASURE 3?

Extra Tidbit: There are only a few songs in the world I hate more than "Shake Ya Tailfeather" from BAD BOYS II.

Another Bad Boys would be amazing. I love the other 2. Its not just because of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence though, I have to say. Dont get me wrong, they have good chemistry, but the supporting characters have always been pretty spot on, especially the bad guys. After seeing Noah, and the other Bad Boys movies, I'm personally submitting my vote for Ray Winstone as the BB3 antagonist.

BB3

#2 was so over the top it was great. I really liked the first National Treasure but found the 2nd just "ok". If Hollywood had any balls they'd team up Smith, Lawrence, Hart and Cube and let the expletives fly!

Not a fan at all of the Bad Boys films, but I wouldn't mind seeing another National Treasure movie.

I liked the National Treasure films; I look at them as a more family-oriented version of The Da Vinci Code.

National Treasure 3

Not a huge fan of the Bad Boy films, so not really looking forward to a part 3. NT3 however I have been waiting since part 2 came out in theaters. Love those films!

Love both these franchises.Bad Boys 3 should be made even if Michael bay won't return to direct.also looking forward to Top Gun 2.wish Ridley scott directs it,with some aeronautical action scenes in 3D.

National Treasure 3.

I just wan to see Bad Boys 3 for completion sake. Frankly the banter between Lawrence and Smith got stale halfway through the 2nd one. There is only so much freaking out Lawrence can do followed by Smith telling his bitch ass to calm down. I like conspiracy movies and adventure movies, and it has Nic Cage so he's never not entertained me.

I've been waiting for Bad Boys 3 for a long time. It's one of my favorite franchises. It's good to know they are working on it. I hope it happens soon. But I know Michael Bay is working on a new Transformers trilogy. Who knows when that will happen? I could honestly careless about National Treasure 3. I like the first film but I hated the second one. The only thing I enjoyed about the second film was Helen Mirren.

I enjoy the National Treasure movies, they're fun. But if Bad Boys 3 is going to be as fucked up as BB2, gotta go with the Boys...as long as Smith's kids aren't in it of course.

I would rather see a National Treasure 3 then a Bad Boys 3 because I have to agree with what Netforce said....Nicolas Cage is much more entertaining to watch and especially in these films. The first two films are alot of fun.

Thanks, man. Regarding National Treasure, I like National Treasure 1 more than 2 because the first one makes much more sense.

No problem, man. And I agree. The first National Treasure film was better.

Hopefully the third film deals with the alien conspiracy that was forshadowed in the second film.

National Treasure 3 because, frankly, I enjoy watching NIcholas Cage more than Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.

This is going to sound stupid but I'd be more excited for a NT3 thand BB3. It may sound childish but I always loved watching them work out the clues to lead to the treasure. I'd be all for a BB3 but news of a NT3 has me more stooked!!
