A synopsis for Bad Boys For Life has revealed new details from the upcoming film starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
The next installment in the long-running franchise is set to feature another team-up between Detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Bennett (Martin Lawrence). Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing the film from a script written by Chris Bremner. Bad Boys For Life will follow the duo as they go up against a drug cartel which the new synopsis reveals has a target on Mike’s head. You can check it out below.
The new installment centers on the Miami PD and its elite AMMO team’s attempt to take down Armando Armas (Scipio), head of a drug cartel. Armando is a cold-blooded killer with a vicious, taunting nature. He is committed to the work of the cartel and is dispatched by his mother to kill Mike (Smith). Nuñez will take on the role of Rite, the tough and funny criminal psychologist who is the newly appointed head of AMMO and Mike’s former girlfriend- and the one who got away.
Bad Boys For Life has long been in development at the studio with Joe Carnahan (The Grey) previously attached to direct from a script he wrote. Carnahan got involved after Michael Bay’s exit but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, although other claims suggest it was due to creative differences.
Directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah from a script written by Peter Craig, Joe Carnahan, and Chris Bremmer, Bad Boys for Life stars Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Paola Nuñez, Jacob Scipio, Alexander Ludwig, Vanessa Hudgens, and Charles Melton. The film is set to go into production this month.
The Bad Boys franchise is also expanding into television with L.A.’s Finest, a spin-off starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba which is set to debut on Charter Spectrum in 2019. The series features Union reprising her role as Special Agent Syd Burnett, the sister of Lawrence’s Marcus Burnett who was last seen taking down a Miami drug cartel in Bad Boys II. The pilot picks up with Syd working as an LAPD detective when her new partner, Nancy McKenna — played by Alba — discovers Syd’s unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret.
Bad Boys for Life will be released in theaters on January 17, 2020. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Bad Boys franchise as we learn it.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
