Big News for 'Bad Boys 3'

Huge changes are coming to the film.

Published August 12, 2016

Get ready to see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back on screen as they're gearing up to reprise their roles in their uber-successfull Bad Boys franchise. However, this time the film will be under a new name.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the movie title has been changed from Bad Boys 3 to Bad Boys for Life. The film's new tentative release date is January 12, 2018, with both actors reportedly on board to reprise their roles as detectives Lowery and Burnett.

Another change that's coming to the film, though, is its direction as Michael Bay, the mastermind behind the direction of the first two installments, will not be returning. Instead, Joe Carnahan will be sitting in the director's chair for the upcoming flick.

The fun doesn't end there either. A fourth installment has also been confirmed to premiere on July 3, 2019.
