The Bad Boys are back in action!
“Yo, yo. I’m telling y’all. I’m telling y’all this is crazy, wait, wait, just wait — it’s official!” Smith, 50, shared in a video he posted to Instagram on Thursday while at the beach with Lawrence.
“It’s official, baby! It’s official! Bad boys 3 is happening! It’s official! It’s official!” Smith continued as Lawrence, 53, could be heard saying, “It’s official.”
“That’s it — no more! Y’all can’t handle no more of that,” the Suicide Squad actor added while laughing.
To commemorate the moment, the father of three also shared a #TBT of a Bad Boys movie still while promising fans that Martin wouldn’t have a beeper in the upcoming film.
Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly in 2017 that the third film wasn’t likely to happen.
“I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” he said. “Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
He added, “I’m there, I’m ready right now. If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that. That’s the studio’s decision.”
Lawrence and Smith will revisit their characters of Det. Marcus Burnett and Det. Mike Lowrey, respectively.
The original film was released in 1995 and directed by Michael Bay (Transformers). The story centered on two detectives ordered to protect a witness to a murder while investigating a case of stolen heroin from the evidence storage room of their police precinct.
