Last night, Will Smith stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his ridiculous looking movie, Collateral Beauty – but he also teased fans about a more popular ridiculous movie: a potential third Bad Boys movie.
News of Bad Boys III has been going back and forth for some time now. Depending on what day it is, the movie is a green light or a red light. Usually, Martin Lawrence seems to think it’s a 100% certainty, for some reason…
Anyway, Smith said Bad Boys III is “very close.” Check out this clip:
So there you have it. If Smith says it’s happening that’s probably on better authority than Martin Lawrence. Just sayin’.
Personally, I really enjoy the original but I remember hating Bad Boys II. It was abhorrent soulless garbage, at least from my perspective in 2003. But, as The Internets sometimes do, Michael Bay’s sequel has undergone a reappraisal with fans. Many see it as some gonzo work of maniacal, self-contained genius from Bay. Perhaps I should watch it again. UnPop’s Curtis Waugh has some thoughts along those lines.
There’s no Bad Boys III release date or shooting schedule or anything, but a tease from the most important star of the franchise is a good sign.
Do you think this is a good idea?
