Sometimes it would be nice if some film projects stayed dead. If you’ve been a reader here at LRM for a bit, you’ll know that I’m not one to succumb to the cynicism that’s ever so present on the internet. At the end of the day, we write about movies because we LOVE them, and we gain nothing from seeing a project fall in its face.

That being said, even I have to admit when a project has overstayed its welcome. Too often in the business does a studio dwell on pushing an unwanted project through development hell, only to force it into theaters. One such example is Bad Boys 3, or Bad Boys for Life. While The first two films have a warm place in my heart, in terms of fun action movies, a Bad Boys 3 is something I’ve never wanted.

Not too long ago, one of its stars, Martin Lawrence expressed his doubts that the film would ever make it to the big screen. However, producer Jerry Bruckheimer is singing a slightly different tune, or at the very least, he seems a bit more optimistic. Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Bruckheimer stated:

“Well, we’ve been developing it for I don’t know how many years now and we had a period of time where it got pretty close and then it drifted away a little bit and hopefully it will drift back again. We have a new writer on it who’s working on it right now, so that gives me encouragement.”

When last we heard, Joe Carnahan had stepped down from the director’s chair due to scheduling conflicts, and he’d also served as writer up until that point. With a new writer now paving the way, it’ll be interesting to see if it’ll gain any real momentum.

While the film COULD end up a decent one, it’s hard not to feel like they keep trying to shove this unnecessary sequel down our throats. Hopefully by the time we get a synopsis, it’ll be interesting enough to pique our interests.

    I would love to see another one if it’s done right. I don’t think it’s something that no one asked for. I think there are a few people out there who want to see the characters come back together one last time. Especially how much time has changed and how Martin and Will may not be as cool as they used to be. It would be a movie about them coming to terms with being “out of the loop” while still kicking bad guy ass.
    I do think that Michael Bay needs to stop playing with robots and get his ass back to regular ridiculous over the top action. Otherwise the inevitable reboot will come along with Kevin Hart and Zac Efron playing the roles.
