Sh*t will continue to get real when the Bad Boys franchise dusts itself off for a third installment and the director of said third installment is ladling out some details about what’s in store for Bad Boys III: At World’s End when it arrives in a theater near you.
Joe Carnahan, who’s also helmed motion pictures like Narc and The Grey, is the filmmaker tasked with keeping Michael Bay’s assembly line of banter, explosions and post-explosion banter in order for Bad Boys For Life. Chatting with Collider, Carnahan dished about the January 2018 film which he says is currently at the rewrite stage. One of the big chunklets to tumble out? Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have multiple big bads to take down.
“It wasn’t challenging [coming up with the antagonist]. It should’ve been. You’ve got all these years in the game and you’ve made all these enemies, you’ve accumulated all this, so in that respect it would be easy. But I don’t wanna say anything else because I don’t wanna ruin the delicacy of who our antagonist is, because I think it’s very cool. It’s not one person. It’s a multi-headed hydra, I’ll say that. It works beautifully.”
