Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are making a return for a third installment of the Bad Boys series. The movie is set to be released by Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2020 and filming will begin next year.
Columbia Pictures president, Sanford Panitch, said “If we’re going to make another Bad Boys after 15 years, it’s got to be next-level great.”
The plot of the film follows Burnett working as a private eye after a falling out with Lowery, who is going through a midlife crisis who wants to mature. All this while he is dealing with a new young and cocky partner who is loyal to Lowery but the loyalty is one sided. The two are brought together again when they must team up to take down an Albanian mercenary with a vendetta and puts a death order on Lowery and Burnett for the death of his brother.
