BAD BOYS 3 In The Works? Whatcha Gonna Do?
Ah, Bad Boys. I have a soft spot in my heart for these films. The first one came out when I was in college. Myself and some classmates were surrounded and questioned by police about a car theft in the area as we waited for the bus to head over to the cinema. "What are you boys doing tonight?" (Sheepish look) "Going to see Bad Boys, officer". It shows you the caliber of Toronto's police when they question guys at a bus stop about stolen cars. 

Moving on! Word has it that scribe David Gueggenheim is being courted by Sony Pictures to pen a third installment for the franchise. Gueggenheim wrote Safe House and its upcoming sequel, and upcoming projects like Narco Sub, Puzzle Palace and an adaptation of his own novel, Weaponized. It would seem that Sony is pleased with his most recent work for them, scripting the new draft of the Uncharted video game adaptation. 

Jerry Bruckheimer is reported to be producing again and Sony wants Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to reprise their roles. There is no word on whether or not Michael Bay will return to the directors seat. The first Bad Boys was the introduction of Bay to the World. He continued to knock it out of the park with The Rock, faltered a bit with Armageddon, then the cracks began to show with Pearl Harbor. Then he came back with Bad Boys II and has been fostering a love/hate relationship with cinema goers since then. I don't feel he would be missed but you cannot have a Bad Boys flick if you do not have Lawrence and Smith. 

So who would be a suitable replacement?

Whatca gonna do? I'll tell you what I'm going to do, I'm not going to watch this shit!

Needs a BETTER director. Then I am all for it. This movies needs to be smart and action packed....not stupid and action packed. Smith and Lawrence can rock this with the right director.

I would argue that Bad Boys 2 was exactly the right amount of stupid and was bags of fun as a result.

It wasn't good stupid. It was bad stupid. Bay Stupid.

I think the movie is jingoistic, racist, homophobic, and misogynist, and unrepentantly so. But that's part of it's delight. Not because I agree with it's world view, but it's rare to be able to witness such a personification of mutant swagger and delusion. I fucking love Bad Boys 2 and the world is a little less bright for it not existing on Blu.

Peter Berg would be great for this project. Maybe they can be ambitious and get Matthew Kassovitz. Despite his exile from Hollywood, John Woo would be right at home in the director's chair.

What ever, to each there own. Personally...I LOVE Bad Boys II!!!!!
Say what you will, as if it wasn't inevitable....thanks to our world wide web....but
I can NOT wait for this third one!!

Oh god I hope not...

I wouldn't mind 3rd one. I can honestly say I haven't like a Will Smith movie over the past decade. Maybe longer. It would mean the world to me to see Smith and Lawrence back together.

I want no Bay. He can't speak in front of a live audience to promote a product. Why would I want him back on a franchise like this even if he can't get Transformers right?

But whoever take writes the story has enough play room to make a decent story of it and hopefully end it well.
