The highly anticipated third installment of the Bad Boys movie franchise will be released 25 years after the original one.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence showed off their chemistry and dazzled the screen with action and humour in 1995’s Bad Boys. It took 8 years for a sequel to hit theaters with Bad Boys II in 2003.

Now fast forward to 2020 when we will see the duo reunite and reprise their roles for Bad Boys for Life, the third film in the series.

Reaching a bit further and Vanessa Hudgens who was in town last year filming the short-lived DC Universe sitcom series Powerless has also joined the cast of Bad Boys 3.

The trio of young actors will play a special police unit which may not see eye-to-eye with the old school bad boy ways Detective Mike Owrey and Detective Marcus Burnett played by Will Smith and Martin Lawrence respectively. All the while the diverse heroes in blue must face a new threat in Miami.
