STALLED FILM: BAD BOYS FOR LIFE FINALLY GETS TO START FILMING
The third film in the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys For Life has been stalled for years with the only major development coming from new directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah being picked to co-direct the new film.
On the flip side, NBC has green-lit a TV spin-off of the classic Bad Boys franchise, starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, but with the last film being 15 years ago; the TV show would need some major hype to perform properly for the network. It’s similar to FOX’s Lethal Weapon show needing references to the original films. Sony can finally rest easy as Chris Bremner’s final script has been approved and shooting has now been scheduled. Production is slated to start early 2019, but more importantly, the film has a tentative release date of Martin Luther King Jr. weekend of 2020. That’s almost two years later than the original planed release.
Despite the new directing duo, original producer Jerry Bruckheimer will be involved with the third film and Arbi and Fallah were behind the FX series Snowfall and are involved in the rumored Beverly Hills Cop 4.
We will finally get to see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence together again!
