Bad Boys 4, 5, and 6 are reportedly coming soon.
It took years before we finally saw a sequel to Bad Boys 2, but, according to reports, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence could be reprising their roles as Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett for the foreseeable future. In 1995 the Bad Boys franchise helped launch the actors from sitcom actors to action movie stars. It was the directorial debut for Michael Bay, and in 2003, the sequel is one of the biggest action movies of all time.
The third installment was in development hell after many years. Seventeen years later, the duo returned for Bad Boys For Life, filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, and Project Casting had the opportunity to share casting calls. Bad Boys For Life scored the most significant box office numbers in the franchise and is still ranked as one of the highest-grossing movies of 2020 after making almost $425 million worldwide.
A fourth movie was given the green light nearly as soon as Bad Boys For Life had debuted with a $62 million weekend and received acclaim by fans. According to reports, fifth and sixth movies are also in development as Sony is looking to capitalize on its success. No details are available now, but the studio is looking for their next hit production, so this is not much of a surprise.
