Martin Lawrence confirms Bad Boys 3 in the worksMTV caught up with Martin Lawrence who said that Bad Boys 3 is definitely happening, despite nearly seven years since Bad Boys II and 15 years since the first Bad Boys, which co-starred Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and was directed by a relatively unknown Michael Bay.

"It's real realistic," the comedian revealed to MTV News recently, addressing rumors that he'll re-team with Bay and the former Fresh Prince once again. "We've talked about 'Bad Boys 3.' "

"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," Lawrence explained. "I met with Michael Bay, and he said he's onboard too - so it's real."

"I got Big Willie to come down and see me about the movie. I felt special," Lawrence said of a visit Smith paid to his friend recently to talk about getting the band back together, adding that at this point, the green light is in the hands of the franchise producer. "We're just waiting on Jerry Bruckheimer to let us know when it's really real."

Peter Craig is putting together a script for Columbia.

Production most likely wouldn't start until next year as Michael Bay readying production for Transformers 3.

Bad Boys 3 comes to theaters February 17th, 2017.

    Paramount.. better not beg for TF5! I want Bay to do this and some other projects. Pain and Gain was his break, but more of his action films, im asking for. I want TF4 to be the last

      FINALLY i dont understand why they couldnt do this sooner bad boys 2 was not only a phenominal box office success but was also HUGE among the general public. everyone i ever met loved the movie and talked about. so the fact that they didnt RUSH to do a third one after the 2nd being so succesful is beyond me.

        not sure if this is a good idea, but the series was fun. Hopefully they can do something good with this...

          Bad Boys 1 and 2 was good action movies, I wish Michael Bay would make a sequel.


          • themime • 5 years ago

            1 and 2 was good, hopefully this one, if it came out, will be as good or better.

                      Armageddon was a good movie

                        I can't watch the first anymore simply because of the whole mistaken identity thing that could've ended sooo much sooner. The second one I love. I quote it often, and will probably do something similar when my daughter goes on a date as what Mike and Marcus do. I'd love to see where the third one goes.

                          I heard the 1st 2 werent all that good

                          Bay's movies mentioned the most include: Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, Transformers

                          for some reason he's left out others such as the Island and Bad Boys and the Rock

                          can he still do any better outside of just producing horror flicks?

                            THIS COULD BE GOOD, THE FIRST 2 WERE SO WHY NOT

                              I hope this will not be in 3D. But I will support the boys!

                                    some how i see this not working. seems more nostalgic than reasonable/necessary. hopefully i'm wrong though.

                                      the first two were awesome, I've been waiting for this to happen. If Martin really is a friend then why didn't he join Will on any of his other films over the years.
