Sony luring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back for Bad Boys 3

BAD BOYS

Sony Pictures is in talks with David Guggenheim to pen the script for a third Bad Boys movie, Deadline reports.

It’s just one of new production co-president Michael De Luca’s ploys to improve the studio’s tentpoles.

That strategy, as Deadline puts it, is “spending money on hot writers,” and Safe House scribe Guggenheim is certainly that.

Sony wants Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to reprise their roles from the first two hit Bad Boys movies, though it’s unknown if they’ll tempt director Michael Bay back too.

Previously, Smith had turned up his nose at a Bad Boys sequel, as well as a follow-up to Independence Day.

But, following the flopping of his After Earth, he suddenly became more amenable to Independence Day 2, and likely this venture too.

We’re assuming Martin Lawrence is available.
