Sony is looking to reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for a third installment in the Bad Boys franchise. The studio is reportedly in early talks with screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to pen the script 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 another go, 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)
