'Bad Boys' Director Has Spilled Some Beans About 'Bad Boys III'

'Bad Boys' Director Has Spilled Some Beans About 'Bad Boys III'

Anticipation will sometimes set you up for horrible disappointment, but you'd hope that isn't the case for the third Bad Boys film.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are finally regrouping to complete the trilogy, but it might be a while before we're actually graced with the film. That probably won't matter, as we've already done 13 years of waiting; we can wait a little longer.

Director Joe Carnahan has calmed our worries that the third film could be too good to be true, by saying it'll definitely be worth the wait.


"It wasn't challenging [coming up with the antagonist]," Joe told Collider. "It should've been. You've got all these years in the game, and you've made all these enemies, you've accumulated all this, so in that respect, it would be easy.

"But I don't wanna say anything else because I don't wanna ruin the delicacy of who our antagonist is, because I think it's very cool.

"It's not one person. It's a multi-headed hydra, I'll say that. It works beautifully."


The amount of time that has passed since the first sequel will also be taken into account, which will help to make it funnier as both Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowery will presumably play on their age.

Joe also said that Bad Boys III will be R-rated, much to the delight of expletive enthusiasts, claiming there's no need to go PG-13 due to the success Deadpool had with an R-rating.

Unfortunately the script is not quite ready, with time being needed to polish things up and sand around the rough edges. We'd all rather wait for a perfected script, rather than have a rushed one right now, so take as much time as you need, lads.
