Martin Lawrence: ”Bad Boys 3′ script is in production’

Actor talks about pairing up with Will Smith again

Martin Lawrence, star of 1995’s Bad Boys and its 2003 sequel, has talked about the possibility of a third film in the detective series.

The actor spoke about the plans while promoting Big Momma’s: Like Father Like Son, the third film in Lawrence‘s long-running Big Momma’s House series.

He told Digitalspy.co.uk that the movie’s producers were currently working on a script.

“They’re working on a script now,” Lawrence said. “That’s something I think looks very real. Will [Smith] told me that he wanted to do it as well.”

He added: “[producer and director] Michael Bay, I heard, was on board and [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer. We’ll see.”

The Bad Boys films starred Lawrence and Smith as detectives who work in the narcotics division of the Maimi-Dade Police.

“There’s no timeline,” Lawrence said of the possible new project.
