ENTERTAINMENT: The fourth part in the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boys franchise is already being developed at Sony, with Chris Bremner writing the script.
The news comes ahead of the release of the franchise’s third movie Bad Boys for Life, which reunites the two actors after a gap of 17 years. Bad Boys for Life is currently laughing its way to $22 million-plus at the Friday box office.
The threequel features Smith and Lawrence reprising their fan-favourite characters of detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, respectively.
It is a follow-up to the franchise’s previous two entries — Bad Boys (1995) and Bad Boys II (2003).
The scribe, meanwhile, is also working on Disney’s much-awaited National Treasure 3, which will see Nicolas Cage returning as treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin Gates.
Jerry Bruckheimer, who has produced Bad Boys for Life, will also finance National Treasure 3.
