Good news for fans of Will Smith, Martin Lawrence – or even both.
The two actors will star together in the new Bad Boys, from the franchise that has already won over millions of moviegoers around the world.
Bad Boys 4 officially becomes a reality
The announcement was made by Will Smith and Martin Lawrence themselves in a video posted on Instagram recently.
Bad Boys 4 comes to continue the series of cop comedies that saw its start in 1995 and has since gained a sizable base of devoted fans.
In the clip posted on Instagram, which you can see at the bottom of this article, Will Smith can be seen driving a car while filming himself with a phone. Later, he stops in front of a house and knocks on the door.
Surprise (or not) beyond the door is Martin Lawrence himself, who opens the door for his friend and co-star. “It’s official! Bad Boys 4!” the two can be heard saying in the next few moments.
The Bad Boys series is directed by Michael Bay, and from the beginning, he has relied on the partnership between the likable actors who play Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett, two out-of-the ordinary cops.
Basically, the fourth “bad guys” movie was officially announced soon after the third, but the project seemed to suffer a stall after last year’s Oscar incident.
Recall that Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 gala after the comedian made a series of inappropriate jokes about Smith’s wife, who was also in the audience.
In an attempt to save Jade Pinkett Smith’s honor, the actor reacted recklessly, earning him a ten-year Oscar ban and shaking his film career to its foundations.
