Ok this is what we know about scheduling. Summer 2015 is 3 years from now:Michael Bay: He's dong "Pain and Gain" now which drops in 2013 and "Transformers 4" next which drops in 2014 after that his schedule is clear.Will Smith: He's working on "After Earth" now for a 2013 release, And Producing a Karate Kid sequel for his son and Annie Remake for his daughter, after that his schedule is clear.Martin Lawrence: Is working on a TV show and a "Coming to America" spin off called "Back To Africa" after that his schedule is free.Based on what everyone has on the table, 2015 sounds pretty good if they start shooting Summer of 2014.

Don't forget WInter's Tale and Hancock 2. Hancock 2 is for early 2013 (maybe) and Winter's Tale is a go for this year. Was thinking July 1, 2015.

I didn't think the second one was all that profitable to justify a third, but whatever. I enjoy these movies.

Bad Boys are the ultimate Popcorn Buddy Cop Blockbusters. The fans really like the movies and the critics hate them. As far as Box Office they both did pretty well if you ask me:

Bad Boys: 19 Million Budget

Domestic: $65,807,024 46.5% + Foreign: $75,600,000 53.5% = Worldwide: $141,407,024

Bad Boys II: 130 Million Budget

Domestic: $138,608,444 50.7% + Foreign: $134,731,112 49.3% = Worldwide: $273,339,556

So that 414 Million WW off a 150 Million Budget for both. That's not counting what both have made on Home Video and Television since both movies play on TV regularly. I'm sure the Budget for Part 3 will be over 200 Million since Will and Bay both are huge now. Believe it or not Martin Lawrence was the Headlining Star of the original "Bad Boys" and got more money than Will. As for development, Sony started it in 2009 and Hired Peter Craig (The Town) to do the screenplay, that was 3 years ago but according to Will they have gotten more than one screenplay so I'm sure there have been some rewrites.

Brittle Boys 3, Will will be late 40's and Martin will be past 50...maybe theyll mentor younger guys or something, ehh we'll see

If there was a Lethal Weapon 4, Die Hard 4, Indy 4, Rambo 4, Rocky 6 when everyone in those guys was pretty old. Bad Boys 3 when Will and Martin are mid-40's would be spring chickens in comparison. But Martin does need to lose some weight cause he was pretty big in Part 2 and that was 9 years ago. I'm sure a "New Bad Boy" will be introduced to the team to get the younger audience. I think it should be Derrick Luke or Tyrese. Edited by filmscholar

Your right about "Winter's Tale" forgot that one but that's a smaller scale and could be done quicker. I think Bad Boys III will get done over Hancock 2 1st cause Will knows he's getting older and that will complete the Trilogy. After "Battleship" I know Peter Berg wants HC2 ASAP, lol.

If BB3 is for 2015, then Smith could do HC2 for 2014.

Winter's Tale and After Earth - 2013

Hancock 2 - 2014

Bad Boys III - 2015

Wow, Smith is really going to be going to work after that 4 year break. We might see another 8 100 Million Dollar streak again. As a huge fan of the original and with effects today, I would really like a "ID4-2" but I think they might have waiting to long. Here's another interview where Smith says BB3 and HC2 are on the way but ID4-2 and I am legend 2 are not:

Any update on Independence Day 2,Bad Boys 3,I Am Legend 2 and Hancock 2

He says no, yes, no and yes. Meaning the two that might be going are Bad Boys 3 and Hancock 2
