Date: 15th August 2016
Will Smith confirmed during the press tour for Suicide Squad that he would reteam with Martin Lawrence for a third Bad Boys film.
However, with pre-production not officially underway yet, it would have taken a herculean effort for Bad Boys 3 to meet its original June 02, 2017 release date.
As many expected, yesterday saw Sony adjust its release schedule and move Bad Boys For Life to January 02, 2018.
