Will Smith Announces Career Hail Mary Pass “Bad Boys 4” with Martin Lawrence Despite Oscar Slap Scandal


Well, good luck with this.

In a Hail Mary pass to save his career Will Smith has announced the 4th Bad Boys movie, called Bad Boys 4. Chris Bremner, who wrote Bad Boys for Life (2020) is back to pen the new screenplay. No director has been announced.

Bad Boys comes from Sony/Columbia Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer but it’s unclear if this movie has been greenlit or Smith and Martin Lawrence have just decided to do it. Considering the Oscar slap scandal etc this is surprising news. We’ll have to keep updating it.
