Thirteen years have passed since Will Smith and Martin Lawrence brought more police shenanigans with Bad Boys 3 and Mike and Marcus are gearing up for more.

After years of everyone saying there might be another sequel, last summer, it was announced that Joe Carnahan would write and direct  the popular demanded Bad Boys 3, while Columbia Pictures currently has release dates set for Bad Boys 3 on February 17th, 2017 and Bad Boys 4 on July 3rd, 2019.

Carnahan recently shared some pre-visualization work on Twitter, insinuating that he will indeed be directing “Bad Boys 3.

Considering the release date is now about one year away, we should be hearing more official word about Bad Boys 3 soon.
