It looks like the prayers of Bad Boys fans have been answered! Sonny has officially announced the release dates for the sequels Bad Boys III and IV. Bad Boys III is set to hit theaters in February of 2017 and Bad Boys IV in July of 2019. As of now the original director Michael Bay and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have not been confirmed to work on the two films.
Martin Lawrence has signed on to reprise his role as detective Marcus Burnett but Will Smith hasn’t confirmed whether or not he will be returning as the charming Mike Lowrey which will definitely be a disappointment to female fans. Earlier last year Martin Lawrence called out Smith on Facebook to do a follow up to Bad Boys II. He captioned a picture from the movie with the following statement, “11 years ago today, Bad Boys II was released in theaters. Feelin’ it’s about time for number 3… what do you think Will Smith?”.
Some fans are skeptical about the sequels and believe that producers may have waited too late for the follow up films as Smith is now in his late 40s and Lawrence is now 50.
I am very excited about the two sequels as I was a huge fan of both Bad Boys I and II. What do you guys think about the forthcoming sequels?!
