Bad Boys 4 in the works, screenwriter already attached
A fourth instalment of Bad Boys is now in development.
The third instalment, Bad Boys For Life, was released on Friday and enjoyed a great opening weekend in the US, with an expected gross of almost $70 million.
It had been 17 years since the last instalment, Bad Boys 2, which was released in 2003 and grossed over $270 million at the box office.
It was the second outing for Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as trigger happy police detectives Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey.
Now, according to Deadline, producers want to fast track the fourth instalment, with Chris Bremner, who helped write Bad Boys For Life, already enlisted to begin work on the new movie.
There is no word on whether Belgians Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who directed the Bad Boys For Life, will return for the new movie.
