It’s been so long since the second entry in the Bad Boys series that I was wondering if we were ever going to see Part 3. I always thought it was Michael Bay’s baby but it appears he’s too busy to return to the Bad Boys universe.
Well, according to Variety “Sony is eyeing Joe Carnahan as a potential director for Will Smith’s “Bad Boys 3.”
The studio is in early talks with Carnahan to do a re-write on a “Bad Boys 3″ script by “Safe House” writer David Guggenheim with an eye to directing.”
Carnahan of course directed Smokin’ Aces, The Grey and The A-Team so he’s no stranger to action and could give Bad Boys a gritty modern edge as well as keeping the humour.
This is an interesting choice and it would be cool to have one more entry in the series.
