'Bad Boys for Life', the third and final instalment of the 'Bad Boys' was announced in October 2018, but the project has been in the discussion stage since 2008. After the success of 'Bad Boys 2', director Michael Bay was interested to come on aboard the third part as well, however, things didn't work out until 2018. The film was shot between January and June this year in Miami and Atlanta.
'Bad Boys for Life' is slated to release January 17, 2020.
An Albanian mercenary will face Lieutenant Marcus Burnett and Lieutenant Michael Lowrey who brought down the mercenary's brother in the past and try to exact revenge any way possible. So Marcus and Michael, who are currently considering retiring from the service, will come together one last time to take care of this unfinished business.
Martin Lawrence as Lieutenant Marcus Burnett
Actor Martin Lawrence will reprise the role of Lieutenant Marcus Burnett which he played in the previous installments of Bad Boy franchise. A police officer, who is married, Marcus is the man who tries to tone things down when all his partner wants to do is shoot his way out of situations. He fails most of the times in the most epic manner thereby inciting laughter from viewers.
Will Smith as Lieutenant Michael Lowrey
Will Smith returns as Michael Lowrey, the police officer who shoots first and thinks later. He is impulsive and is known to get not just himself, but his partner in dicey situations.
It looks like Michael hasn't changed much in the upcoming film, judging from the trailer, except for the fact that he is going through a mid-life crisis so he might be a tad bit more trigger happy than he used to be.
Joe Pantoliano as Captain Conrad Howard
Actor Joe Pantoliano returns as Captain Conrad Howard and will continue to play the frustrated captain who has to clean up the mess created by Michael. From totalled cars during chases to multiple dead bodies after a shoot out incident, Captain Conrad has had it all and he will continue to deal with Michael until the day he retires.
Theresa Randle as Theresa Burnett
Actor Theresa Randle returns as Theresa Burnett, Marcus's wife in the show. In the trailer, we saw Marcus going through another wedding ceremony with her and so it looks like things finally did work out between her and Marcus.
'Bad Boys for Life' is directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, Belgian directors who went to film school together and have since worked together on projects. They also directed the first two episodes of FX show 'Snowfall' and are expected to direct 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' next, which is in development.
The trailer of 'Bad Boys for Life' was released September 4 and it featured Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnett and Detective Lieutenant Michael Lowrey back together for one last time as the two officers contemplate retirement. While Marcus seems happy at the thought of retirement, Michael is wary and is currently going through mid-life crisis especially on the face of his partner's insistence that all of this has to come to an end at some point.
We also see Marcus doing what he does best, which is become or orchestrate the distraction that aids his partner and in the process has the audience bursting out in laughter. Michael, on the other hand, still seems as fascinated with shooting as before and doesn't think twice before pulling the trigger.
