Movie executives at Columbia Pictures have commissioned writer Peter Craig to begin work on a new screenplay for Bad Boys 3.
Although the project is still in its early stages, film bosses hope to entice Smith and Lawrence back to the series as Miami police detectives, bringing Transformers director Michael Bay and producer Jerry Bruckheimer back on board, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The original Bad Boys release hit theaters in 1995, grossing a conservative $141 million worldwide, while Bad Boys 2, the sequel released eight years later, was a global box office smash, taking profits of $273 million.
