“Bad Boys For Life” is a go.
Earlier this month, we reported that Bad Boys For Life was scheduled to start filming next year as long as the movie didn’t face further setbacks. The third installment in the Bad Boys series has been heavily anticipated for fifteen years at this point. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are set to reunite for the film, which has gone through several directors. Michael Bay helmed the first two films, bringing his penchant for explosions and intersecting storylines to the forefront. Now, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Snowfall) will sit in the director’s seat.
Martin Lawrence took to Instagram on Halloween to share a photo of himself and Smith together. “It’s official. Bad Boys for Life. #teammartymar #badboysforlife @willsmith #weback,” he captioned the post. The two actors are posted up at Santa Monica beach in California for the picture, and the infamous pier can barely be seen in the upper left corner of the shot. According to Esquire (via The Hashtag Show), the plot for the film is as follows:
“The film will see Lawrence’s character Marcus Burnett working as a private eye after a falling out with Smith’s Mike Lowery, who is going through a midlife crisis as a bachelor who finally wants to mature, all while dealing with a new a young and cocky partner who is loyal to Lowery but that loyalty is not reciprocated, and finds bond with Burnett when he returns to the fray. Lowery and Burnett are brought together again when a lean, mean, skilled, Albanian mercenary with a vendetta puts a death order on Lowery and Burnett for the death of his brother. Now the two must work together once again to bring him down.”
