Martin Lawrence says Bad Boys 3 will actually happen

04.21.2010

With Will Smith and Michael Bay both commanding bajillions of dollars to show up to a movie these days, the prospect of another BAD BOYS sequel would need a lot of stars to align to get it made. But the franchise’s less expensive star, Martin Lawrence, says he’s talked to all the majority parties, and the sequel should be happening.

"Any time you can get Big Willie to come out and talk about doing a third installment of a hot movie like ‘Bad Boys,’ you have to take notice. I met with Michael Bay , and he said he’s onboard too — so it’s real…We’re just waiting on Jerry Bruckheimer to let us know when it’s really real."

So I would guess that “real” means that all the players are onboard and ready to go and “really real” means the studio is actually greenlighting the project. Peter Craig is already writing a script for it, and with way, way more unnecessary sequels making to the the big screen these days, I don’t think it’s that far fetched to expect BAD BOYS III in a few years.

I’d be all for another one I suppose, though it’s the kind of movie Will Smith can act and Michael Bay can direct in their sleep. A cocky smooth talker in a film filled with explosions really isn’t expanding either of their repertoires, but it is what each does best. My only request is that they don’t bring in a third partner just for the sake of “spicing things up.”

Extra Tidbit: Despite my recent distaste for Michael Bay, BAD BOYS II is really underrated.

Hardcore ridiculous over-the-top r-rated action is just the kind of movie Michael Bay does exceptionally well... His best movies are pretty much the Bad Boys series and The Rock... everything else he's done just doesn't seem to fit his style/formula as perfectly as these films did. I'd definitely rock out to a third Bad Boys, hell yeah!

agreed

Bad Boys is a sweet movie but I really, really enjoy watching Bad Boys 2 more than the 1st. Though I can't say it's a better quality film than the first, it's crazy entertaining, to me at least. And I would have to agree with Tassi, it's wayyyyyyy underrated, but in no way, shape or form better than the 1st. Bring on a 3rd!!

Recommendations?

Hmmm, I have to admit I've never seen Bad Boys or Bad Boys II. Given Michael Bays reputation (I absolutely hated Transformers 2),are these films worth checking out?

Well, I expected that... And really hope it will happen soon. Can't wait. While Bad Boys 1 is Bay's "worst" movie so far, Bad Boys 2 is one of the best pure action no brain blockbusters ever. So can't wait for something Bayish which hasn't to do anything with Transformers.

Love me some Michael Bay and some bad Boys flicks... i fuckin LOVE Bad Boys 2... and a 3rd flick would be amazing! But fully agree, no new partner in the mix... just stick with: Martin Lawrence, Will Smith and of course, Joey Pants!

While a cool idea in theory, I don't know how they could go any more over the top than "Bad Boys 2."

Bad Boys 2 is also really long. Otherwise, I think this is the kind of thing that just makes sense. When the first sequel came out, it was just bigger, louder, and longer than the original. It wasn't necessary, but it was still fun--until it wouldn't end. I swear...

But what it did prove was they had a winning formula, I'd almost call it a poor-man's Lethal Weapon, but is that racist? I could stand another one, so if they wanna do it, then good.

I could tell you were excited by this purely by your writing style.

All for it

I love the idea. I have to admit it's become kind of iconic. Besides, it's been long enough for a third. I wouldn't have been able to endure a third soon after BBII got real like five or six times; after hour#2 it somehow felt right that they would end up in another country if the story was to go anywhere else.

I am a huge fan of Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2 so am very hip to this news. However, I find it funny reading some of the comments below - like:

They overdid EVERYTHING, and made the movie in good ol' new age Michael Bay fashion........2 and a half hours long, completely unnecessary. Plus the action was very hard to see (car chase, stupid spinning camera gun fight), they brought in a "sister" from Martin Lawrence, who just happened to be a cop as well.....please

I am surprised that you are

I am surprised that you are complaining about these things. They are not a massive step away from the first film. The spinning camera was a great idea and it worked really well. Compared to movies like Bourne the action was not at all difficult to see!

Bad Boys II and underrated in the same sentence dont make sense. That flick was so fucking horrible. Its the second worse Michael Bay flick. It was unfunny, homophobic, it was way too long, in one word, its was SHIT.

I greatly enjoyed both previous Bad Boys films, more than anything else Michael Bay has done. So yeah, I'm hip to this news.

I'm 100% on board. Extra Tidbit: I agree, that like 10 minute highway chase scene if freaking INSANE. That whole sequence is just amazing. I want that blu-ray so bad, not sure if it's out yet though.

I say make it happen.

Bad Boys needs a third to even out the trilogy. Not to mention above all else it would be at least a fun action flick, and whats wrong with that? We need more of those, especially if it involves another awesome Bad Boys 2 Highway Car chase, which i still think is one of the greatest action scenes ever filmed.

Bad Boys 3........nooooooO!

The first Bad Boys was GREAT! The 2nd was fucking horrible. They overdid EVERYTHING, and made the movie in good ol' new age Michael Bay fashion........2 and a half hours long, completely unnecessary. Plus the action was very hard to see (car chase, stupid spinning camera gun fight), they brought in a "sister" from Martin Lawrence, who just happened to be a cop as well.....please. The movie had way to much shit going on.

The first is a great action movie with a solid story... the second takes the action and humor to the extreme but I still dug it. I love their chemistry and I welcome a third.

love it

How can you hate on a buddy cop film, especially one as fun and funny as this, it doesnt ake itself serious and they are a blast. I am ok with sequels to movies that arent Oscar fare, its not like the 1st one was timeless or anything, just fun, cant wait

Yeah, buddy

Hmm, I hope they get back to the tight nip relationship they had in the first film. It was too much about the budget in the sequel

Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2 are easily the 2 best buddy cop films next to Die Hard With A Vengeance or maybe Hot Fuzz, I've been waiting for news on a third installment, nice
