The studio is hoping that director Michael Bay, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will all return for the third film. No deals have been made since the project is still in the early stages of development.

“Bad Boys” starred Smith and Lawrence as Miami detectives Mike Lowrey (Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) who get caught up in cases that involved explosions, kidnappings and car chases. The first filmed was released in 1995 and catapulted Smith into action start stardom and Michael Bay as a director. The film grossed $66 million domestically and $141 million worldwide. With the help of Smith’s action star status and Bay as a huge director, the 2003 sequel grossed $138 million domestically and $273 million worldwide.

All parties have expressed an interest to return if a story can be worked out. However, with the popularity of Smith, Lawrence, Bay and Bruckheimer, it could be costly to get everyone on board.
