Miami PD Detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are ready to tackle their next case.

Pre-production has officially begun on the third Bad Boys film, currently titled Bad Boy For Life. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, who first played the best-friend detectives back in 1995, have been documenting the process of bringing the third film to life. It officially kicked off  on November 1st, 2018, when the two appeared together in a video on Smith’s Instagram announcing that the third film was given the green light. Since then, the two have posted gun-training pics and test footage clips on their respective accounts. Additionally, Smith posted the following pic to his Instagram.

While the first film was nearly 24 years ago, the two came back for a sequel with returning director Michael Bay. The film was a fan favorite and financial success. While there was always talk of a third film, nothing ever came of it. Now, 16 years later, the first steps in the third chapter of Miami’s “bad boys” are being taken. While mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer is returning, director Michael Bay will not be involved. This time around, the film will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Snowfall) based off a screenplay written by Joe Carnahan (The BlacklistThe A-TeamSmokin’ Aces), Chris Bremner and Anthony Tambakis (GringoWarrior).

Bad Boys For Life is scheduled to be released nationwide January 17th, 2020.
