The 1995 film Bad Boys, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, was a surprisingly funny and unexpectedly successful hit, taking more than $140million at the box office. And its 2003 sequel Bad Boys II wasn’t bad either.

And now fans of the franchise should be pretty excited to hear that there’s a third film already in the works with the two lead stars set to return.

According to Deadline, Sony Pictures is negotiating with the filmmaking team Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct Bad Boys For Life. And the movie’s set to begin filming this August.

Belgian filmakers Arbi and Fallah recently directed episodes of BBC crime drama Snowfall and their third feature Gangsta is due out this year.

This is pretty great news. AMAZING NEWS. 

The project has been a long time coming for Sony since its release in 1995 when it helped turn Smith into a global superstar and put Lawrence on the A-list as his partner.

Lawrence had previously cast doubt on the chances of another film, telling EW last year: “I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out. Will [Smith] is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.” But thankfully it looks like those problems have been ironed out.

Now to watch the trailers forthe first two films until the next one hits our big screen.
