The film will start shooting next month. The expanded roster will include new to the franchise actors like Alexander Ludwig from The Hunger Games, Charles Melton from Riverdale, and Vanessa Hudgens known for Spring Breakers and Suckerpunch.
While nothing is confirmed about who the new trio are playing, it’s reported they will be a highly specialized police unit that clashes with the style of the two detectives.
People are excited at the new cast additions
Vanessa getting that check this year ????????

The Bad Boys films are about Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey, played by Lawrence and Smith respectively, as narcotics detectives trying to stop drug distributors in Miami. In the first film, they’re trying to tack down a large amount of heroin stolen from police custody. In the sequel, they investigate a huge influx of ecstasy in the city and try to cut it off.
The stories leave room for many more faces to make an appearance.
@uren_marc, they're back for more trouble, got a spot left on your list???

She can be in it too… It's not like there is a limit to how many women can be in a film
