There are few things more brilliant than Will Smith and Martin Lawrence sharing the same screen, and it looks like we’ll get to witness the brilliance again as Will confirmed a third “Bad Boys” movie is going to happen.
After dealing with the controversy of his the charge his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, led to boycott the 2016 Oscars, Will sat down for a revealing interview with BBC Radio in London. He discussed the disparity in the recognition of black films, how terrified he is over Jaden’s fearlessness and Willow’s curfew, and much more.
But, the part that made us happy was when he revealed he was interested in doing a “Bad Boys 3” sequel after a recent run in with Martin Lawrence:
“I saw Martin [Lawrence] a few weeks ago… I haven’t seen him for about two years. We just looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another Bad Boys. We’re definitely doing another one.”
You read that right. The Oscar-worthy “Concussion” cinema star is 100% certain that a new film is happening. In the meantime, we can all rejoice because a continuation of the “Wild, Wild West” film is not.
Also, Will Smith called Janet Hubert a “brilliant artist,” even after she ripped him to shreds when she decided to call the Pinkett-Smith’s out for boycotting the Oscars– confirming he’s going to play Mr. Nice Guy whether the original Aunt Viv tries to bait him or not.
