Sony is trying hard to reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for a third Bad Boys film.  The studio is reportedly in early talks with screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to write the screenplay for Bad Boys 3.  The last action film featuring Smith and Lawrence as the two wise-cracking cops came out a decade ago.  Both films were directed by Michael Bay, but the director is not currently involved with this go around… yet, but Jerry Bruckheimer will return as producer.

Guggenheim, meanwhile, is busy making his name scripting action/thriller films.  In addition to the sequel to Safe House, he’s also worked on Doug Liman’s Narco Sub, McG’s Puzzle Palace, and a new draft of Sony’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. (Via Deadline)

What do you think about a third Bad Boys film? I for one love the idea of seeing the two superstars returning for a third go-round. The first two Bad Boys films are among my all time favorite action movies, and it is an easily quotable and likable film. That’s saying a lot considering the first one stars Téa Leoni.
