Plot Details And Title Revealed For 'Bad Boys 3'

Details have been revealed of the highly anticipated third Bad Boys movie, so we can officially start to get excited now.


The latest instalment has now got a name - Bad Boys for Life - and it's been confirmed that both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will be reprising their roles.

The film is set to start shooting in August/September this year and will hit cinemas next year.

According to That Hashtag Show, some details of the plot have been leaked. The new film will see Marcus Burnett (played by Lawrence) working as a private investigator having fallen out with Mike Lowery (Smith).

Lowery's is in the midst of a mid-life crisis while having to deal with being matched with a new younger partner.

The pair find themselves reunited after an Albanian man puts out a death order on both men, for the killing of his brother.

The film has a reported budget of $100 million, so there's most likely lots of high-action car chases to look forward to.

Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have been brought in after Joe Carnahan had to pull out in March due to scheduling conflicts.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are the pair behind the excellent FX crime drama Snowfall, which seems like pretty safe hands.

As well as the new movie, there's also a Bad Boys spin-off TV show - titled LA's Finest - starring Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union, which is currently shooting. Union starred in the second Bad Boys film and she will be reprising her role as DEA agent Syd Burnett, who is now working as an LAPD detective, partnered with Nancy McKenna (Alba).

According to the official synopsis: "The free-spirited former DEA agent Burnett has a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective. She's partnered with Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom who can't help but look at Syd's freedom with some grass-is-greener envy.

"These two have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they both are at the top of their fields in this action-packed, character-driven procedural."
