“Bad Boys,” the beloved action-comedy film trilogy that gave us the iconic duo of Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, is returning with a fourth episode. Fans of the series have been waiting for word on the release date and what the future holds for the two wisecracking Miami detectives.
In this post, we’ll look at the most recent news on “Bad Boys 4” and when we might expect to see it on the big screen.
When Will Bad Boys 4 Be Released?
According to Collider, Bad Boys 4 is set to be released in less than a year on Friday, June 14, 2024. However, given that work on the film was halted in July 2023 due to ongoing strikes, we believe this date is likely to change. In fact, with no end in sight to the strikes, we predict Bad Boys 4 to be postponed until 2025.
Even so, it’s not bad news for Bad Boys fans because we’ve all grown accustomed to long gaps between films. Patience is also a virtue.
Who Will Be in the Cast of Bad Boys 4?
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are set to lead Bad Boys 4. Without them, it wouldn’t be a Bad Boys movie! They’ll return as Detective Mike Lowrey and Detective Marcus Burnett, respectively.
Several additional actresses have been confirmed to feature in Bad Boys 4, including Vanessa Hudgens, who will reprise her role as Kelly. Hudgens appeared in the previous film, Bad Boys For Life, as AMMO’s weapons expert.
The list of expected cast members of Bad Boys is given below:
- Will Smith as Detective Lieutenant Michael Eugene “Mike” Lowrey
- Martin Lawrence as Detective Lieutenant Marcus Miles Burnett
- Vanessa Hudgens as Kelly
- Alexander Ludwig as Dorn
- Paola Núñez as Captain Rita Secada
- Tasha Smith as Theresa Burnett
- John Salley as Fletcher
- Eric Dane
- Ioan Gruffudd
- Rhea Seehorn
What Will Happen in Bad Boys 4?
We anticipate that the plot of Bad Boys 4 will center on the AMMO section that Mike and Marcus were assigned to at the end of the third film, as well as Mike’s prospective development as a father.
Bad Boys 3 revealed that Mike and the cartel chief Isabel had a son named Armando (Jacob Scipio). Despite Isabel’s devastating departure from the franchise, Armando saw the light and assisted Mike and Marcus in reuniting him with his father. Regardless, Armando ended up in jail.
We did see Mike visit him with the offer of forgiveness, and we’re hoping to see that redemption in Bad Boys 4, as well as the development of Mike and Armando’s father-son connection. With the conflict between Armando’s background and Mike’s loyalties, this might set up some extremely fascinating plot aspects.
Is There a Trailer for Bad Boys 4?
There is no trailer for Bad Boys 4 yet, and we don’t expect one anytime soon because filming hasn’t finished and is still on hold. For now, you can watch the trailer for season 3 below:
