Series producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed that David Guggenheim is developing a storyline for Bad Boys 3. In July 2014, Bruckheimer stated “we’re working on an outline right now. Hopefully we’ll get a screenplay in the next three months. And that will become a movie I hope.”
The budget for a third film would be considerable if series star Wil Smith reprises his role of Detective Mike Lowrey and if director Michael Bay returns.
