Seth Rogen Says He Helped Judd Apatow Rewrite Bad Boys 2

Seth Rogen Says He Helped Judd Apatow Rewrite Bad Boys 2

Seth Rogen has said that he helped write the script for Bad Boys II.

The comedian made the shock admission yesterday, saying that he worked on the film when he was struggling to make ends meet, with him and a friend enlisted by Judd Apatow to help with script rewrites.

Replying to a post comparing the merits of the first Bad Boys film with the second instalment, he said he came up with a few of the jokes in the hit movie.

The 37-year-old said: "I helped rewrite Bad Boys 2."


After being pressed a little further on his role, Rogen said: "Judd was rewriting it and me and Evan (Goldberg) were broke so he gave us a bit of money to help.

"I don't remember much but we all definitely wrote the joke where they don't know the words to the song, and where Martin shoots the machine gun in the car by accident. And probably many more..."

So there you have it, who knew, eh?


It's been 17 years since we got to see detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) in action, but now fans don't have too long a wait until the new flick lands this Friday.

In the meantime, you'll have to be content with the trailer, which shows the duo reunite to take down a drug cartel in Atlanta.

"One last time," the pair say to each other in the footage.


After all this time, you'd expect our dynamic duo to be older and wiser, but it's evident from the very beginning that little has changed - as Marcus bumps his car door on a fire hydrant, and he and Mike start bickering.

Their work as detectives seems no more streamlined, either.

Despite plans to knock on someone's door and speak to them calmly, Mike ends up kicking the door in suddenly to bust into the apartment, yelling: "LAPD! Get down."


A baffled Marcus shouts: "What the hell happened to 'knock and talk'?!"

As well as Smith and Lawrence, Joe Pantoliano will be returning to the role of Captain Howard, as well as Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig and Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio and Paola Nuñez.

DJ Khaled will also be appearing and is set to play a character called Manny the Butcher, who sounds, err, charming.

Bad Boys For Life is released in UK cinemas on Friday 17 January.
