Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have confirmed that a fourth instalment in the Bad Boys series will be made.

The original Bad Boys, released in 1995, helped cement Smith's status as a bankable movie star at the time. He and Lawrence would go on to make Bad Boys II and Bad Boys for Life.

The success of 2020's Bad Boys for Life led to speculation that another movie would be made, and the duo confirmed their plans in a video released on social media. In the video, Smith travels to Lawrence's home where the pair embrace, saying "IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME!"

The pair joked that they messed up the title of the last movie, as it was this one that should have been called Bad Boys 4 Life.

"We shouldn't have called it that, though," Lawrence said.

"The three was the 'e'.

"But this is Bad Boys 4. It's official!"

Bad Boys 4 will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who helmed Bad Boys for Life.

Bad Boys impact

Lawrence also reflected on how Bad Boys catalysed his career in Hollywood, as before the 1995 release he was known as a comedy actor on television.

"It was big," he continued.

"For us to come together and prove that we can deliver, and we can pull people into the box office – that two black stars, two sitcom stars, could make the money at the box office (was huge).

"I didn't go to college, so I felt TV was my college years. I felt with movies, I had graduated; it was just different."

Lawrence also revealed that the reason for the extended period of time between Bad Boys 2 and Bad Boys For Life is that Smith wanted the script to be close to perfect before signing on.

"It took so long because of Will. He wouldn't do the script unless it was right," he explained.
