Hollywood star Martin Lawrence is getting fans extra hyped for a much-needed Bad Boys 2 sequel. The former Def Comedy Jam legend hit up social media this weekend to tease fans about his state of mind going into the BAD BOYS FOR LIF3 production.

Lawrence went to Instagram Sunday (January 13) with a shot of himself alongside co-star Will Smith and confirmed filming would start up this coming week.

Earlier in the day, Smith revealed they watched the first two Bad Boys films to prep for the new movie.

A few nights ago, Smith shared a pic presumably of the BAD BOYS FOR LIF3 script.
