‘Bad Boys 3’ Director Teases Freeway Motorcycle Chase

‘Bad Boys 3’ Director Teases Freeway Motorcycle Chase

This sequel has been in development for several years, but a report from August claimed that Will Smith hadn't signed on yet. While it still hasn't been officially announced that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are officially signed on, this long-awaited action thriller is closer to happening now than it has ever been in the past decade. It isn't known if any other franchise stars such as Gabrielle Union, Theresa Randle and Joe Pantoliano will come back at this time.

Another big question mark for Bad Boys 3 is whether or not Michael Bay will be involved in any way. 1995's Bad Boys marked the filmmaker's directorial debut, and he came back eight years later to direct the follow-up Bad Boys II as well. Michael Bay's career has certainly skyrocketed since then, directing the lucrative Transformers franchise, and, most recently, his war drama 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which debuted last month. It isn't known if Michael Bay even has any desire to return to the franchise, 12 years after he made Bad Boys II.

The news of the death of Will Smith's Stephen Hiller was revealed through a news report on a viral website. The report revealed that he died while test piloting the ESD's first alien hybrid fighter, when an unknown malfunction caused the untimely death of Col. Hiller.

‘Batman’ Solo Movie Getting Will Smith's Deadshot?

Next year, Warner Bros. kicks off their DC Comics Extended Universe (DCEU) with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which brings both Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time. We reported in July that Warner Bros. is so pleased with Ben Affleck's work as The Dark Knight that they have brought him on to star in and direct a new Batman Reboot, while co-writing the script with DC's Geoff Johns. Today we have a new report from Latino Review, which claims Batman may get some company, in the form of Will Smith's Deadshot from Suicide Squad.

Nothing is official yet, but if a deal is made, Will Smith will reportedly have a "major role" in what's being described as a "The Good the Bad and the Ugly scenario." The actor is reportedly excited about being part of a larger cinematic universe, and he has already signed on for multiple appearances as Deadshot in the DCEU. All of the parties involved are reportedly "enthusiastic" about the actor signing on, so perhaps we'll hear something official in the near future.

‘Concussion’ Trailer #2: Will Smith Wages War Against the NFL

Concussion focuses on an important topic. But is it the movie people want to see on Christmas Day? Perhaps it will pull in NFL fans, and it could garner a few Oscar nominations. But this is not the feel good family movie you and your family will want to sit and enjoy this holiday season. As the second trailer teases, Concussion is going to weigh heavily on your brain. This drama stars Will Smith and is based on a true story that delves into NFL brain trauma.

Will Smith plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) and fought for the truth to be known. Concussion is based on the David vs. Goliath journey of Dr. Omalu, who treats the football-related brain trauma of a pro player while fighting to bring awareness to the public. In his search for the truth behind the devastating malady, Omalu's quest humanizes the price paid by professional athletes in impact sports but also by people who challenge the status quo as it exposes the political, cultural and corporate interests that fuel the business of sports.
