Will Smith is all set to join the Bad Boys team for one more time. Franchise stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence recently took to their respective social media and share the news. They posted the same video that they each captioned, “IT’S ABOUT THAT TIME!”
The video began with Smith recording himself as he drove to Lawrence’s home, telling viewers that he was going to provide a ‘hint’ as to what his big news was, before “Shake Ya Tailfeather” by Nelly, Diddy and Murphy Lee, from the Bad Boys II soundtrack, began playing through the speakers. Smith then turned to the camera and said, “I wish I was you not knowing what I’m about to show me.”
Smith then arrived at his costar’s home and greeted Lawrence who opened the door and asked with a smile, “It’s about that time?” However, after the duo cheered and embraced, Smith turned the camera on them both and confirmed jubilantly, “It’s about that time!” “It’s official, y’all,” he continued, confirming production on the fourth film. “Bad boys for life, baby!”
Smith held up four fingers, seemingly confirming that the movie would be called Bad Boys 4 Life but Lawrence was quick to remind his friend that the third film was already called Bad Boys for Life. “We shouldn’t have called it that, though. “The 3 was the ‘e,’ ” said Smith, adding with a laugh, “But this is Bad Boys 4. It’s official!”
The news comes after Lawrence said in a July 2022 interview with Ebony magazine that he’s “got one more” instalment in the pipeline, “at least,” of the action-comedy series. The franchise kicked off with 1995’s Bad Boys and has so far produced two sequels alongside Smith. Combined, the three films made more than $840 million at global box offices.
