Another person who is looking forward to the development of the third installment of the franchise is its former member Gabrielle Union, who recently tweeted an interesting reaction to the news.
Union, who appeared in Bad Boys 2 as Lawrence's character's younger sister, recently took to Twitter to seemingly openly express her interest in joining the cast.
The actress retweeted a video of the two actors sharing the news, and added an eye and phone emojis. The apparent translation: "Call me!"
This comes months after it was announced that NBC shelved Union's previously filmed pilot for a Bad Boys spin-off with Jesssica Alba, titled LA's Finest, due to an expensive budget of $12 million.
