The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Sony Pictures are already making moves to develop a fourth Bad Boys film, with Bad Boys For Life writer Chris Bremner returning to write the script.
Bad Boys For Life sees Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett having to confront new issues (career changes and midlife crises), as they work alongside a newly created elite team of the Miami Police Department known as AMMO to take down a ruthless leader of a drug cartel.
The report comes out as the film is set to defy the original box office projections for Bad Boys For Life, as it’s set to become the the second-best MLK weekend opening of all time at the domestic box office, after originally being projected to make $42-45m but is now expected to make between $63-67m.
Bremner co-wrote Bad Boys For Life with Peter Craig and Joe Carnahan, with the film directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. It’s unclear whether El Arbi and Fallah will be attached to direct the fourth film.
Bad Boys For Life was an entertaining film and it definitely left the door open for a fourth, so it’ll be interesting to see where they with it.
