Hollywood stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are finally coming back to the big screen – together. The duo’s long-awaited Bad Boys for Life movie now has a release date.

According to reports, the highly-anticipated action-packed movie is expected to hit theaters in 2020.

Sony has given an Oct. 18, 2019, release date to the Mr. Rogers drama “You Are My Friend,” with Tom Hanks attached, and set “Bad Boys for Life” to open on Jan. 17, 2020. “Bad Boys for Life” is the third film in the action comedy franchise, with Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as detectives in the Miami Police Department, Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey. The filmmaking team of Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are expected to direct “Bad Boys For Life,” with Jerry Bruckheimer back as producer. (Variety)

Last month, Will Smith hinted at his interest in getting back to the big screen with Lawrence.

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)
