‘Bad Boys for Life’ is an upcoming American buddy cop action comedy film directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. A sequel to the 2005 film ‘Bad Boys II’ and the third installment in the Bad Boys series, the film follows the lives and work of Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnet and Detective Lieutenant Michael “Mike” Lowrey.

‘Bad Boys for Life’ Cast

Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are expected to reprise their roles as Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnett and Detective Lieutenant Michael “Mike” Lowrey respectively. Rest of the cast is currently under wraps.

‘Bad Boys for Life’ Release Date

Sony has confirmed a January 17, 2020 release date for ‘Bad Boys for Life’ in USA.

‘Bad Boys for Life’ Plot

No plot details have officially been confirmed for the third movie, but one source suggests it will see Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) working as a private eye after falling out with his partner Mike Lowery (Smith). Lowery is apparently going through a midlife crisis as a bachelor who finally wants to mature, while dealing with a new, young, cocky-but-loyal partner (although that loyalty is not reciprocated). When Burnett returns to the fray, he finds a bond with the younger man.

The leaked plot details claim Lowery and Burnett are brought together once again when a skilled Albanian mercenary with a vendetta issues a death warrant against the pair in retaliation for the death of his brother. Now the two renegade cops must work together once more to bring him down.

But all this is unconfirmed story and hence the movie plot could diverge anywhere. The movie is releasing in a different decade than its prequel ‘Bad Boys II’, which had released in 2003 and the 2003 movie was itself a sequel to ‘Bad Boys’, released in 1995. A lot of changes have happened not just in filmmakers perspective but also the audience perception. So, there is an expectation that the filmmakers would be intending to translate the passage of time into the characters’ lives as well.
