It has been over ten years since "Bad Boys II," and in the time since, all anyone can think about is when "Bad Boys III" will get made. And steps have been taken. In 2009, Sony hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write a script, and when that didn't work out, the studio hired David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") at the end of last year to take a crack at it. Not much has been heard about the project since, but according to Martin Lawrence, his signature comedy franchise is very much alive. Stopping by "Conan" last night, the actor was asked if the sequel was still in play, and he offered up this quasi-update: "I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it's real, they’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." Time to get excited? You might want to settle down. »

Asked about the project by O'Brien, Lawrence responded: "I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it's real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good."
David Guggenheim was hired to pen the script back in December with the studio hoping to bring back Lawrence and Smith. Bruckheimer in April said it was all a matter of scheduling more than anything. »

We've been hearing talk of a Bad Boys 3 movie since 2009. The last bit of information that we heard was in 2013 when Sony Pictures was looking to hire Safe House writer David Guggenheim to take a crack at the script.
Martin Lawrence was a guest on Conan last night to promote his new FX series Partners, which co-stars Kelsey Grammer. While there, Conan O'Brien asked him about a third Bad Boys, and if it was actually a possibility, to which Lawrence replied:
"I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer... yesterday and he said its real. They’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good."
The real question remains though… is Will Smith or Michael Bay up for returning? Because without those two elements it's not really going to be a Bad Boys movie. I enjoyed watching the first two films, and »

Development on Bad Boys 3 at Sony Pictures has been dragging along since as far back as 2009. The studio hired The Town scribe Peter Craig five years ago to write the script, but as recently as this past winter, they decided to commission a new script from Safe House writer David Guggenheim. But since then, we haven't heard anything about the project coming to fruition, which is just par for the course. However, Martin Lawrence appeared on "Conan" last night where he was asked about the sequel by Conan O'Brien, and thankfully the star had some good news, giving us hope that he will reteam with Will Smith again. Here's the video of Martin Lawrence on "Conan" last night from Team Coco: If you don't feel like watching, when asked about the potential for Bad Boys 3 finally coming together, Lawrence simply said, "I believe so, yes. I just »

It looks like a "Bad Boys 3" movie is indeed closer to becoming a reality with one of the stars of the film, Martin Lawrence, revealing to Conan O'Brien on his show last night, that he spoke to producer Jerry Bruckheimer the night before, and it's definitely in the works. It previously wasn't clear whether Lawrence was interested in returning (Will Smith and Bruckheimer have previously shared interest, but Lawrence was noticeably quiet about it), but given his conversation with Conan last night, it looks like he will be back for a third film. Screenwriter David Guggenheim ("Safe House") is penning the script for the threequel. Although no »

Comedian Martin Lawrence has confirmed that Bad Boys 3 is very close to getting a green light. He appeared on last night's Conan promoting his new FX sitcom Partners. Host Conan O'Brien brought up the subject, saying he'd heard a rumor that a sequel was in the works.
Martin Lawrence responded:
"I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it's real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good."
The actor also pubicily brought up the sequel on Facebook back in July. Here is what he said:
Conan O'Brien asked Lawrence on his chat show about the latest progress on the project.
Lawrence replied: "I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer.
"I just talked to Jerry yesterday and he said it's real. They're working on the script, they're getting closer and it all looks good."
The pair then joked about O'Brien playing a "crooked cop on crack" in the sequel.
Lawrence said in April 2010 that the project was "real realistic" and »
We've been hearing about "Bad Boys 3" for a while, but nothing ever happened. But in a new interview, Martin Lawrence revealed that he just met with producer Jerry Bruckheimer about the project. When asked if "Bad Boys 3" will ever happen, the actor replied: "I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said its real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good." Bruckheimer previously said that everyone wants to make "Bad Boys 3," but with people like Will Smith and director Michael Bay involved, it may be impossible to find the right time for everyone's schedules to work out. But there's still hope since David Guggenheim (Safe House) is still working on the script. »

After Sony Pictures announced earlier today that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being pushed to 2018, the studio gave Uncharted the superhero sequel's old release date on June 10, 2016. Uncharted currently has the date to itself, falling between another Sony project, the animated comedy Sausage Party on June 3 and Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory on June 17.
Here's what Sony Pictures President Doug Belgrad had to say about Uncharted's new release date.
"June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It's just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film."
Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) revealed last week that production on Uncharted will begin in early 2015. This action-adventure is based on the successful video game series that follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who goes on a quest to find the lost city of El Dorado. Mark Wahlberg was once attached to play Drake, but he is no longer involved. »
The future timeline of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and the planned spin-offs has been uncertain since the second film in the franchise didn't do quite as well as Sony Pictures hoped. Originally, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was dated for June 10th, 2016, and the studio was figuring when they wanted to throw the spin-offs into theaters after that. But now Sony has decided to mix things up by setting The Sinister Six for release on November 11th, 2016 and then following it up with the third film in the primary franchise (likely summer) in 2018. But the vacated summer 2016 date won't be empty. Read on! Sony has decided to fill the June 10th, 2016 with their video game adventure adaptation of Uncharted, directed by King of Kong and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon and written by David Guggenheim (Safe House). Of course, the studio is still trying to figure out who will play the main character of Nathan Drake. »

Looking to broaden its Spider-Man franchise, Sony has dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018.
After modest box office results for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the studio thinks “Sinister Six” will expand the Spider-Man universe by bringing in villains, making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and WB’s Justice League superheroes in the coming years.
The studio has also slated “Uncharted” for June 10, 2016 — which had previously been the release schedule previously held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
Sony made the announcements Wednesday on the opening day of Comic-Con. The studio first revealed the “Sinister Six” and “Venom” spinoff projects in December, »

After being stuck in development for several years, the video game adaptation Uncharted is finally moving in the right direction, with Seth Gordon coming on board to direct back in February. While the production still hasn't found the right actor to play Nathan Drake yet, the filmmaker revealed that production will start in early 2015.

Bruckheimer added that he is hoping to convince Bay to reunite with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence on the project: "We'd love to get Michael Bay [but] he's very busy right now. Hopefully we can twist his arm and get him in there."
"It's been in the works for 35 years!" he said of the former. "We really want to make it, Tom is engaged and so is Paramount, so we »
