Bad Boys for Life launched release and the creators are now operating on Bad Boys 4. The cast and the writers and directors have been revealed. Read all about it.
Sony Pictures plans to introduce the fourth segment of the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys 4. The screenwriter Chris Bremner is going to write a screenplay for the forthcoming movie. The screenwriter has also agreed to write Disney’s National Treasure 3.
The National Treasure 3 producer is Jerry Bruckheimer, who has made three Bad Boys and two National Treasure films. Jerry Bruckheimer joined up with Peter Craig and Joe Carnahan for Bad Boys for Good. Bad Boys for Life has projected to make $60 million to $70 million during the first day of launch in North America but won just $7 million on the first day.
Of course, we don’t have a lot of details about the movie yet, so it’s never too early to delve through the knowledge that’s accessible and indulges in our characteristic style of educated curiosity. Here’s what we heard so far about the Bad Boys 4.
When is Bad Boys 4 going to release?
Bad Boys 4 does not yet have an official announcement, although as THR points out, the intention is that there will not be as much waiting as there was for Bad Boys II and Bad Boys for Life. Considering that the old photo had published in 2003, it slips into the realm of “Ok, we should not stress out.”
It is real that Sony needs to strike while the iron is heavy, and it is important to remember that in those original reports revealing the ventures in 2015, the Bad Boys 4 was reported to be two years after the third instalment. Of course, at the moment, the movies had to slip in 2017 and 2019, but it’s clear that Sony’s plans have undergone small adjustments since then — but after the insane box office showing Bad Boys for Life, we see no reason why the studio does not want to bring Bad Boys 4 into motion as quick as practicable.
As mentioned, Smith has a pretty packed list of future projects — but we’re going to proceed and presume Sony can do whatever it takes to make sure the Bad Boys 4 reaches theatres no longer than 2022.
Who will be the cast of Bad Boys 4?
We strongly can suspect that Smith and Lawrence will certainly return to Bad Boys 4, even though the rest of the cast is a bit of a question mark. It’s a safe bet that Paola Núñez returns as Rita, the boy’s fellow officer; the end of Bad Boys for Life has her elevated to the rank of Lieutenant, and after her former boss, Lieutenant Howard (Joe Pantoliano), was assassinated during the film’s activities, Lowrey and Burnett are going to have someone busting their asses.
Even, the semi-credit scene of the movie nags that Armando (Jacob Scipio) may have a part to play in the fourth film. After investing all of For Life trying to kill Lowrey for his long-standing role in taking down his parents’ empire, it turned out (shocking forward) that Lowrey was his real dad, having had a deep undercover affair with his mom. Yes, the boy killed a couple of people and is currently in jail, but the stinger suggests that Lowrey might be able to help secure a lighter punishment in exchange for his aid in a new case — something that is sure to form the base of the next film storyline.
What’s going to happen in ‘Bad Boys’ 4?
Regrettably, the source doesn’t give us much in the way of information about this case — but it’s pretty clear that it’s going to have a link to Armando. Although the kid invested his whole life educating the wife of a merciless drug lord to be an assassin for a Mexican cartel, he indeed has inside details on all kinds of foreign criminal organizations, so we’re assuming that Bad Boys 4 might see Lowrey and Burnett attempting to work with a dubious new organization — one for which Armando has a degree of familiarity.
