Reports are suggesting Bad Boys 3 is set to start production later this year.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures are in ‘early negotiations’ with directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to make the film.
El Arbi and Fallah would take on what will be titled Bad Boys for Life, which should see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence reunite for a third chapter.
Smith and Lawrence played Miami police detectives in the first two Bad Boys films, which were directed by Michael Bay.
The films, released in 1995 and 2003 respectively, took in a huge $414.7 million worldwide.
In June 2008, Bay said he may direct the third film, but said the greatest obstacle to the potential sequel would be the cost – as he and Will Smith ‘demand some of the highest salaries in the film industry’.
