The long-awaited Bad Boys 3 movie might finally happen. Hollywood superstars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have sparked new speculation about the long-awaited sequel to 2003’s Bad Boys 2 actually happening.

Last night, Smith initially stirred up on Instagram hype by hinting at his interest of continuing the movie series.

The huge Instagram post immediately sparked reactions from both rap star Drake and Smith’s Bad Boys co-star Martin Lawrence.

In August 2016, buzz developed about Bad Boys 3 suffering a premiere setback.

Sony is still nailing down a production start date, hence it would never be ready by next summer for its June 2 date. No problem for the Culver City studio as the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend of January 12, 2018, will do just fine. In its new spot, Bad Boys for Life will go up against 20th Century Fox’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure and Paramount animated feature Sherlock Gnomes. (Deadline)

In spring 2016, Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer inked a new deal for a Bad Boys movie.

Will Smith and Jerry Bruckheimer have agreed to make “Bad Boys 3” … TMZ has learned. Sources connected with both Bruckheimer and Smith tell TMZ, the 2 have talked for hours in the last 2 days — 4 hours at dinner Tuesday night and a long lunch on Wednesday — to hash out the terms of the contract. They also spent time working on the script. (TMZ)
