“I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” Lawrence said to Entertainment Weekly. “Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
The film, believed to be called Bad Boys for Life, lost the director, Joe Carnahan, and the release date of Nov. 9, 2018, was scrapped. As for the actors themselves, while Lawrence was willing and ready to shoot the film, his co-star, Will Smith, is a very busy man.
“If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that,” said Lawrence. “That’s the studio’s decision.”
Hopefully something turns around so we can see the dynamic duo on the big screen again. Bad Boys II was released 14 years ago and had a worldwide gross of $273.3 million.
