Almost 24 years after Will Smith and Martin Lawrence first joined forces for Bad Boys, the duo are back on the beat in the first look at the franchise’s long-awaited third installment, Bad Boys for Life.
On Instagram, the stars shared a Boomerang video of themselves, appropriately tuned to P. Diddy’s 2001 track “Bad Boys for Life.”
The film from directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (taking over for Michael Bay) will feature Smith and Lawrence once again playing ride-or-die Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett. Vanessa Hudgens, Charles Melton, and Joe Pantoliano (the latter reprising his role from the first two films) are also set for BBFL, while there’s no word yet if Bad Boys II star Gabrielle Union, who played Mike’s love interest and Marcus’ sister, will also return, as she’s starring in the upcoming Bad Boys spin-off TV series, L.A.’s Finest.
Bad Boys for Life is slated to hit theaters Jan. 17, 2020.
