“Bad Boys,” a 90's action-comedy classic starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Directed by Michael Bay, feature buddy cops, Mike Lowery (Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Lawrence), as they investigate a case of heroin that was stolen out of the basement of police headquarters. As the two Miami detectives sniff out French drug lord Fouchet (Tchéky Karyo), Fouchet leaves a trail of bodies in his wake and the only witness is Julie Mott (Lisa Boyle).
The comedic duo were back on the scene in 2003 in the "Bad Boys II" sequel as they investigated a circulation of the designer ecstasy into Miami. Marcus' sister Syd (Gabrielle Union) is featured in this installment. A budding relationship between Lowery and Syd causes tension between Lowery and Burnett, while the pair are in hot pursuit of a vicious drug kingpin.
Will and Martin are slated to star in a third installment of the "Bad Boys" series which has had several unmet release dates. The rumor mills claimed that there was some friction between Will smith and director Joe Carnahan after Carnahan pulled out of the film. Allegedly, Carnahan claimed that there were too many script changes and the project dragged on for a year-and-a-half. According to Carnahan, there is no ill will between the two, he simply wanted to concentrate on his new company with Frank Grillo, and that he is "a huge fan of Will”.
Despite any supposed beef, let's hope this will not stall the movie any further and that the third installment, "Bad Boys for Life," will be in theaters November 2018, to be followed by "Bad Boys 4" in 2019.
