Will Smith And Martin Lawrence Confirm ‘Bad Boys 3’ In Instagram Post

It took 15 years, but after the success of Bad Boys II in 2003, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are reuniting for the long-awaited third sequel.

The pair announced their exciting news to fans on Instagram.

“It’s been a LOOOONG time Coming. But now it’s Here! @BadBoys For Life,” Smith posted on Thursday.

“We back!!” he said alongside his partner in crime, Martin Lawrence.

Their enthusiasm was infectious as they both made the announcement from what appears to be Venice Beach, in Los Angeles, according to the Root. “It’s official!,” the overjoyed Smith exclaimed repeatedly.

“It’s official, baby! It’s official! Bad boys 3 is happening! It’s official! It’s official!”

Lawrence also solidified the announcment by echoing Smith, saying, “It’s official!”

 

What else is there to say, really? Because it really is official since we’re hearing it from the mouths of these bad boys.

“That’s it — no more! Y’all can’t handle no more of that,” Smith signed off, giggling over the silly, but legit announcenent.

 

The 50-year-old Independence Day actor also posted a throwback to the first Bad Boys movie in 1995, assuring fans that his co-star will not be keeping a beeper for the third film.

Lawrence also posted a separate announcement from the same day on his IG account, calling himself and Smith “Bad Boys for life.”

News of Bad Boys III is a relief for fans who were disappointed when Lawrence told EW in 2017 that the third installment for the cop-buddy franchise wouldn’t happen.

“I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” he said, referring to their schedules.

“Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen. I’m there, I’m ready right now. If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that. That’s the studio’s decision.”

The excitement is already building.

Bad Boys For Life is aiming for a January 17, 2020, release date. Director Michael Bay will not be returning but will be replaced with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Black, Gangsta).
