Jerry Bruckheimer Confirms 'Hopes & Dreams' of Bad Boys 3
While there's a set of threequel's in store for both Martin Lawrence (Big Momma's House 3) and Will Smith (Men in Black 3), the two actors have another in the works that brings them both together for the third time. I'm talking of course about Bad Boys 3, and while we heard last August that screenwriter Peter Craig, who wrote The Town for Ben Affleck, was going to take a crack at the script, we haven't heard much since, other than Lawrence's hopes that it would come together sooner than later. Well, now it looks like super producer Jerry Bruckheimer is also up for a third go round but it's something that they're building to gradually.
Whilst promoting his other film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Bruckheimer spoke with ComingSoon and this is what he had to say about the potential of a Bad Boys 3, "It's a wish and a hope and a dream. We've been working on a screenplay, which is excellent. It's an idea Will gave us, so hopefully, it will come to fruition, we would love it to." Since Lawrence said he's waiting for Bruckheimer to tell him it was "really real," it seems like we only have to wait for Will Smith's schedule to open up. If all goes well maybe Michael Bay will have an opening after Transformers 3 wraps shooting, then maybe we'll see some real movement.
The first two Bad Boys movies were some crazy adrenaline fueled fun, so a third go round could be a return to form, or so I hope. It's good to know that the idea came from Will Smith and not some marketing gurus at Sony. Anybody else share Bruckheimer's same "hopes" and "dreams" of seeing a Bad Boys 3?
