Eva Mendes has spoken out about how she'd be up for doing a sequel to Hitch in a bid to find out what Alex 'Hitch' Hitchens is up to these days.

The 45-year-old actor was attending the Create & Cultivate conference in Los Angeles over the weekend when she revealed she would get back in front of the camera with co-star Will Smith.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Mendes said: "You know what? It's time for a Hitch 2. Will, let's do this. Hitch 2," after realising the movie will celebrate its 15th anniversary this year.

"It'd be in the world of all these dating apps," she added. "What would Hitch do? He'd be out of a job."

Eva Mendes says she would do another instalment of Hitch.

Earlier in the interview, she said: "There's just so many things I won't do. Like I won't do most of the movies I've done in the past. A lot of things are off that list. I don't want to do anything too violent. Of course, I don't want to do anything too sexual or sexual at all.

"So I'm basically like, 'Disney, I'm all yours, Disney'. That's all that's left. I'm more of the villain kinda type of girl. I'm more of the Ursula type... I like the villains of the Disney movies. They're fun."

A Hitch sequel could only realistically be possible if Will Smith also agreed, but he's been a little bit busy recently working on the new Bad Boys movie with Martin Lawrence.

He won't be stopping there either because according to reports, Sony is moving forward with another instalment with Chris Bremner lined up to pen the script once again.

After a 17-year absence, Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) returned with the release of the third movie earlier this year.

The first Bad Boys film was released in 1995 and followed lifelong pals Burnett and Lowrey as they attempt to protect a murder witness while investigating the theft of heroin from their own precinct in Miami.

Bad Boys II came out eight years later in 2003 and saw the pair attempt to stop MDMA from getting into Miami. The pair temporarily contemplated calling their partnership quits after Lowrey started dating Burnett's sister, but obviously the pair kissed and made up. After all, bad boys are indeed for life.
