Will Smith and Martin Lawrence confirm a fourth ‘Bad Boys’ is on the way

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are teaming up again for a fourth film in the “Bad Boys” franchise.

Rumors have swirled for the past few years about an upcoming sequel – and the cast took to Instagram on Tuesday to confirm that a new ‘Bad Boys’ is officially in the works.

In a clip posted by Smith, the Oscar-winning actor comes across as shy at first, teasing his followers as he gets in the car and starts driving…somewhere. (The GPS announces the destination, but the sound is heard.)

“I’ll give you a hint,” Smith told viewers. He then blasts “Shake Ya Tailfeather” by Nelly, Diddy and Murphy Lee, a track featured in “Bad Boys 2”, from his car speakers.

Smith eventually arrives at what turns out to be Lawrence’s house. The two actors embrace warmly and excitedly announce to the camera that a fourth “Bad Boys” is on the way.

“It’s official, y’all,” Smith says in the clip. “Bad Boys for life, baby!” Four life!” He raises four fingers to emphasize the point.

“Bad Boys for Life,” of course, was the name of the third film in the series, and Smith and Lawrence joke that they missed an opportunity not to record that title for the fourth installment. “We shouldn’t have called it that,” Smith said, with false regret.

The clip already has more than 3.5 million views.

Sony Pictures has confirmed that the buddy cop action-comedy movie ― which doesn’t yet have a title or release date ― is in early pre-production at the studio, according to The variety.

“Bad Boys for Life” directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are returning to direct the next film. They worked with Smith and Lawrence reunited in 2020 for the franchise’s third installment, 25 years after the original “Bad Boys” was released.

The first “Bad Boys” film, directed by Michael Bay, follows Miami detectives Mike Lowrey (Smith) and Miles Burnett (Lawrence), who “protect a witness to a murder while investigating a case of stolen heroin in the evidence storage room of their police station,” as an IMDb summary the dish.
