‘Bad Boys 3’ Confirmed, But Has Will Smith Sworn Off ‘Bad’ For Good?

23After more than a decade, the Bad Boys are back in business. According to Martin Lawrence, who starred in the first two films opposite Will Smith, a second sequel is definitely in the works. “I just talked to Jerry (Bruckheimer) yesterday, and he said it’s real,” Lawrence confirmed. “They’re working on a script, they’re getting close, and it all looks good.”

Lawrence indicated he would definitely be back on board for Bad Boys 3, but will Smith? When we spoke to him a few years ago, Smith indicated he would be interested in a Bad Boys reunion, but only under the right circumstances.

Will the Bad Boys 3 script be enough to entice Smith back for another round? Stay tuned… and produced.

Fans Just Won’t Leave Stallone Alone! (And You Know What? He’s OK With That)

22Ever since his breakout role in Rocky nearly 40 years ago, Sylvester Stallone has been one of the most recognizable people in the world. On one hand, becoming a household name (and face) has become a very good thing, since it’s helped him become one of the biggest movie stars of our time. On the other hand, it’s difficult to enjoy time out in public without fans wanting to get a few words, an autograph, and a picture.

Is it a fair trade? To Stallone, the answer is a definite “yes,” since he remembers what it’s like to be a fan himself. (Click on the media bar below to hear Sylvester Stallone)

Stallone’s back on the big screen again with The Expendables 3, a movie he also wrote and produced.
