Bad Boys 3 Renamed And Given New 2018 Release Date
Detectives Burnett and Lowery’s new case has an official name.
Sony has titled Bad Boys 3 as Bad Boys For Life, EW confirmed. The name change comes with the project moving closer to reality with a Jan. 12, 2018 release in mind, a source tells EW.
The new title is a fitting throwback to 2003’s Bad Boys II where star Will Smith tells his cop partner Martin Lawrence, “We ride together, we die together. Bad boys for life.” (See the clip, below.) The two will reprise the roles they debuted in 1995’s Bad Boys — Michael Bay directed that movie and the sequel. The Grey’s Joe Carnahan is in the director’s chair for Bad Boys For Life, not Bay.
Bad Boys For Life has had three different release dates in the last year, originally set for Feb. 17, 2017 before shifting to June 2, 2017. Now, it’s back to a winter window.
Let Will Smith tell it, this is not a hoax. Back in February, the slightly-wrinkled Prince damn near guaranteed that this movie was a go during a BBC interview.
“I saw Martin [Lawrence] a few weeks ago, I haven’t seen him for about two years. We just looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another Bad Boys. We’re definitely doing another one.”
