Ever since Bad Boys II hit theaters in 2003, fans have been clamoring for a fourth installment in the franchise. It seemed like a no-brainer – the movie grossed over $273 million at the worldwide box office and cemented Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as one of Hollywood’s most iconic on-screen duos. So what happened?
It’s been over 15 years since Bad Boys II was released, and there’s still no word on when or if Bad Boys 4 will ever see the light of day. The holdup seems to be due to a variety of factors, including creative differences between Smith and director Michael Bay, scheduling conflicts, and the simple fact that it’s just taking a long time to get the pieces in place.
Bad Boys 4 is currently stuck in development hell, but that doesn’t mean there’s no hope for the movie ever getting made. Here’s everything we know about Bad Boys 4 so far, including what Smith and Lawrence have said about the possibility of making another sequel.
Bad Boy 3 and its box office success
It has been nearly two decades since the last Bad Boy movie was released, but the franchise may be getting new life with the recent release of Bad Boy 3. The film, which stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, grossed $174 million at the global box office in its opening weekend.
While that number is far from the record-breaking $232 million opening of Bad Boy 2, it is still a strong showing that has many wondering if there will be another installment in the franchise.
For now, there are no plans for Bad Boy 4, but with the success of Bad Boy 3, it is certainly possible that we could see another film in the future.
Why a fourth Bad Boy movie is possible
It’s been almost two decades since the release of Bad Boys II, and fans are still clamoring for a fourth film in the franchise. The question of whether or not there will be another Bad Boys movie has been a topic of debate ever since Bad Boys III was first announced – and then subsequently canceled – back in 2005.
Now, with both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence confirmed to be reprising their roles as Detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett in the upcoming Bad Boys for Life, it seems that a fourth installment in the franchise is finally becoming a reality.
So why has it taken so long for another Bad Boys movie to happen? And what can we expect from the long-awaited fourth film? Here’s everything you need to know about Bad Boys 4.
What the fourth Bad Boy movie could be about
It has been nearly three years since the release of the last Bad Boy movie, and fans are already wondering if there will be another one. While nothing has been officially announced, there have been some hints that a fourth movie could be in the works.
The third Bad Boy movie, titled Bad Boys for Life, ended with both main characters, Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence), retiring from their jobs as undercover detectives. However, the final scene of the movie teased that Mike might not be able to stay away from the action for long.
If there is another Bad Boy movie, it could picks up with Mike being drawn back into the world of undercover work, despite his promise to Marcus that he would stay retired. Alternatively, the fourth movie could focus on Marcus as he tries to adjust to life outside of the police force.
Whatever the case may be, fans will have to wait and see if another Bad Boy movie is truly in the works.
The cast of the fourth Bad Boy movie
The cast of the fourth Bad Boy movie has not been announced yet, but we do know that some of the original stars will be returning. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are both set to reprise their roles as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, respectively. filming is set to begin in 2020.
It is not yet known what the plot of the fourth Bad Boy movie will be, but we can speculate that it will picks up where the last one left off. In the third film, Lowrey and Burnett team up to take down a drug lord in Miami. The fourth film could see them taking on another case in another city.
We will have to wait until more information is released about the fourth Bad Boy movie before we can say for sure if it will be worth watching. However, if it is anything like the first three films, then it is sure to be an action-packed thrill ride.
The director of the fourth Bad Boy movie
It’s been nearly six years since the release of the last Bad Boy movie, and fans are anxious to know if there will be another one. The short answer is: maybe. In an interview with Collider, director Adil El Arbi said that he would “love to do” another Bad Boy movie, but that it all comes down to whether or not Will Smith is onboard. “I think it would be amazing to have a fourth movie with Will Smith,” El Arbi said. “I loved working with him. He’s such a professional, he’s so nice, he’s so collaborative. So if he blesses us with his presence in Bad Boy 4, I would love to do it.”
The release date of the fourth Bad Boy movie
It’s been over 17 years since the release of Bad Boys II, and fans are still clamoring for a fourth movie in the franchise. The first Bad Boys movie was released in 1995, followed by the sequel in 2003. Both movies were box office hits, grossing over $414 million combined.
With such a long gap between movies, it’s understandable that some fans might be wondering if there will ever be another Bad Boys movie. The good news is that bad Boy 4 is currently in development, with original director Michael Bay set to return.
While no specific release date has been announced yet, it’s been reported that filming is slated to begin sometime in 2020. So it’s possible that we could see the long-awaited fourth Bad Boys movie hit theaters sometime in 2021.
The budget of the fourth Bad Boy movie
It’s been over 15 years since we last saw Detective Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and his partner Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) on the big screen in Bad Boys II. And while there have been rumors of a fourth Bad Boy movie in the works for years now, nothing has ever come to fruition. Recently, though, it seems like things might finally be moving forward.
In an interview with Inverse, producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the budget for Bad Boys 4 is currently being worked out. “We’re trying to figure out what [the budget] should be and how to make it for a price,” he said. “It’s all about economics.”
Given the success of both Bad Boys movies, it’s not surprising that Bruckheimer is confident they can get the fourth film made for a reasonable price. And with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence both on board, it seems like all the pieces are finally in place for another installment in this beloved action franchise.
The box office predictions for the fourth Bad Boy movie
The fourth Bad Boy movie is set to be released in 2020, and the box office predictions are already high. The movie will reunite actors Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, who played Detective Marcus Burnett and Detective Mike Lowrey in the original trilogy.

If the fourth Bad Boy movie follows the trend of the previous three movies, it is predicted to gross over $500 million at the box office.
Will There Be Another Bad Boy 4 Movie?
