The third part of the movie was released earlier this year on January 17, 2020, to a resounding success. This achievement of more than $426.5 million at the box office has spurred Sony to order a new installation of the movie. The producer of the Bad Boys For Life movie, Jerry Bruckheimer, will also be producing the fourth installment of the film. The movie will be written by Chris Bremner, again and most likely directed by Adil and Bilall.
Bad Boys For Life movie garnered an approval rating of 77% from Rotten Tomatoes based on 257 reviewers, while Metacritic delivered a 59% rating from 46 critics.
Will there be a fourth installment of Bad Boys?
It took eight years from the release of the first Bad Boys film in 1995 to the release of the sequel Bad Boys 2 in 2003. Sony Pictures had revealed plans for a third and possibly the fourth film by 2015. However, Bad Boys for Life became the main focus due to a slew of pre-production complications involving the creators, scriptwriters, and cast. on the other hand, Sony Pictures revealed that Bad Boys 4 was in the process on the same day that Bad Boys For Life hit theatres.
After the box office success of ‘Bad Boys For Life,’ a sequel is in the works. The Bad Boys have returned—again. According to sources, a fourth sequel is in the process, after the box office hit of the first.
Sadly, the development has been temporarily suspended and will not be launched anytime in the near future. Despite writing a script and being ready to start pre-production, Sony postponed Bad Boys 4 because of the controversy over Will Smith’s Oscar slap.
Things haven’t been working well for Will Smith since he appeared on stage at the 94th Academy Awards and slapped Chris Rock.
Despite saying sorry to Rock and the Academy for his actions, he was asked to resign from the academy, and several of his projects were canceled. Netflix has canceled a drama, Fast And Loose, starring Smith, intended to be a remake of his movie Bright. Sony has undoubtedly halted production on Bad Boys 4, and Apple has yet to announce a release date for Emancipation, a slave drama in which Smith was featured.
