Bad Boys producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed that the script for the franchise’s planned fourth installment is being written.
Bad Boys For Life has, thus far, been the biggest hit of 2020 worldwide. The film is, of course, the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise and the first to be released in nearly 17 years. The film would go on to gross well over $400M worldwide and was well-reviewed by critics and currently holds a 77% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Another film in the Bad Boys franchise was already confirmed to be in development. How far along the development was unknown up until now. While speaking to Collider, Bad Boys producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that script for the fourth film is already being written:
We had a great experience on the first one, both through the development process with Tom Rothman [chair of Sony] and his team, and then through the editing process and filming process… We put together, along with their help, a movie that’s very satisfying for the audience, and we’d like to do it again, and I think they’d like us to do it again. We’re currently working on a draft for the fourth one.
