Will Smith's 'Bad Boys 3' To Film This Summer 2018

Bad Boys 3 aka Bad Boys For Life is ramping up production.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back with new directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah behind the wheel over for Michael Bay.

According to reports, producers hired production designer Stijn Verhoeven, art director Guy Barnes, and stunt coordinator Ben Hernandez Bray. A signal that pre-production on the action movie has begun as they tend to be some of the first early hires.

While it has been reported by news outlets Sony is trying to get cameras rolling by August, giving Will Smith some time off since his last sci-fi movie Gemini Man in July.

Filming was set to take place in Miami and Atlanta, we assume Sony will start filming in the fall or winter.

There are reports that Suicide Squad 2 has been pushed back into next year as Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey is preparing a January production. This gives more time for Will Smith to make Bad Boys For Life.

Sony has set the release date for January 17th, 2020.
