Sony wants Safe House's David Guggenheim to pen Bad Boys 3

Dec. 10, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Hey everyone, look! We're talking about BAD BOYS 3 again!

Is this cause for excitement? Depends on how big of a fan you are, if you are at all. I enjoyed the first installment when it first debuted back in 1995, and even now it's still a good for a watch. The second was okay in my opinion. To be fair, I saw it once then never revisited it. So a third one? Are we a little past the expiration date at this point? Though I really do love Martin Lawrence.

After some restructuring over at Sony, the studio has decided that in order to make good, solid pictures they need to spend a little money on better writers (obviously). So in the case of BAD BOYS 3, Sony is looking at David Guggenheim to script. Guggenheim's last picture was SAFE HOUSE starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. He's recently been working on Doug Liman's NARCO SUB, McG's PUZZLE PALACE, and the video game adaptation of UNCHARTED/DRAKE'S FORTUNE.

Though Michael Bay did direct the first two installments of BAD BOYS, he is not in place to direct right now. The only person attached is producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The studio would like to get the original cast for this so expect to see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence jump back in their roles, unless they done with it which I doubt.

Are you ready for another BAD BOYS film?

why so long

why does it take 10 years in between each one of these, they should have made 4 of these by now, they are nothing but over the top fun and action, we don't need an Oscar caliber script here, just let Smith, Lawrence and Bay do their thing!!

I actually love the first two films. They are in no way 'good films' but they are entertaining ridiculous action films. I mean I cringe a lot while listening to the dialogue of Bad Boys II, "Yes, I'm going to toss this over there. Right on that mine!," but the films are awesome in a so bad its good way. The action goes so over the top you just cannot help marvel in the carnage: it still has the best (and most expensive) highway chase scene ever put on film. Considered my ticket bought for the

I actually prefer sequels this way. Make each movie stand alone. Then when a sequel comes it's exciting, and if it doesn't, then who cares, no loose ends. I do enjoy the comic book movies, but some that don't get sequels and have open ends annoy me.

Safe House wasn't bad and Guggenheim's script did find its way onto the Black List, so I'm curious as to what he'll bring to the table - and whether he'll make it less silly, or just embrace what makes Bad Boys Bad Boys.

Love both films and love the craziness of the sequel. Would definitely be interested in a third film. It's not like Smith and Lawrence have anything better at the moment.
