Does Will Smith Have Bad News For ‘Bad Boys 3′?

For a long time, Martin Lawrence has wanted to make a third Bad Boys movie, and the studio behind it, Sony Pictures, was on board with the idea.

Now, however, it [...] For a long time, Martin Lawrence has wanted to make a third Bad Boys movie, and the studio behind it, Sony Pictures, was on board with the idea. Lawrence and Will Smith both signed on to the project; the studio hired a director and even gave the movie a tentative release date. Now, however, it looks like the film’s in limbo. They lost the director, the film was taken off the schedule, and Lawrence has told Entertainment Weekly, “I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out, Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.” As for Smith, yes, he’s making other movies — including a live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin (he’ll play the genie) — but he’s still not ruling out the idea of the Bad Boys sequel. He loves the character, and he loves working with Lawrence, but when we spoke to Smith a few years ago, he felt like the window of opportunity was closing on Bad Boys. (Click on the media bar below to hear Will Smith) We’ve thought all along this movie would have a hard time getting made, and now it looks like it could be D.O.A. What do you think? Would you want to see Lawrence and Smith team up again for Bad Boys 3, or do you think the franchise has run its course? Share your thoughts with us!
