It looks like a “Bad Boys 3” movie is indeed closer to becoming a reality with one of the stars of the film, Martin Lawrence, revealing to Conan O’Brien on his show last night, that he spoke to producer Jerry Bruckheimer the night before, and it’s definitely in the works.
It previously wasn’t clear whether Lawrence was interested in returning (Will Smith and Bruckheimer have previously shared interest, but Lawrence was noticeably quiet about it), but given his conversation with Conan last night, it looks like he will be back for a third film.
Screenwriter David Guggenheim (“Safe House”) is penning the script for the threequel.
Although no word on whether Michael Bay, who directed the first two films in the franchise, will be back as well. He did say during a press junket interview while promoting the 3rd “Transformers” movie in 2011, that he wanted to do it and was, at the time, talking to the actors about it. So we can speculate that he probably will be back as well.
