While there hasn’t been any solid Bad Boys 3 news since it was announced last August that Columbia Pictures had hired Peter Craig to write the script, Martin Lawrence told MTV that he thinks it’s happening.
“Any time you can get Big Willie to come out and talk about doing a third installment of a hot movie like ‘Bad Boys,’ you have to take notice,” Lawrence said. “I met with Michael Bay, and he said he’s onboard too so it’s real.”
“I got Big Willie to come down and see me about the movie. I felt special,” Lawrence added. “We’re just waiting on Jerry Bruckheimer to let us know when it’s really real.”
The first Bad Boys, released in 1995, was made for just $19 million and earned $141.4 million worldwide. It was followed in 2003 with Bad Boys II, which took in $273.3 million.
While it may be happen, Mr. Bay wouldn’t be available until sometime next year as he’s currently getting ready to shoot Transformers 3.
