“We ride together, we die together. Bad boys for life.”
We all knew Bad Boys 3 was happening, but further details were near impossible to locate — until today, that is! Narcotics detectives Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey are officially coming back, and the title to their most recent adventure will ring a familiar bell: Bad Boys For Life.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the long awaited third installment has a preliminary January 2018 target for release.
18 Months? What gives? Well, the long delay is partially due production not being able to begin until Will Smith is done filming Collateral Beauty. Sony also has Bad Boys 4 scheduled for July 3, 2019.
If you thought waiting 13 years for Finding Dory was bad, you’re probably pretty pissed about it. If everything is smooth sailing from here, Bad Boys For Life will premier at least 15 years after Smith and Martin Lawrence filmed the last installment.
While the wait might not be what fans wanted to hear, news of a title is another step towards the third and fourth Bad Boys films becoming a reality. In the meantime, you can pull out your VHS tapes and relive the first two films.
