Joe Carnahan has been giving us an update on the status of Bad Boys in Life.
Speaking to Collider these last few days, the A-Team helmer revealed that he is aiming for the film to be R-rated.
“I think it’s gonna be R,” he said. “I don’t think we’re trying to make a PG-13 version of Bad Boys. We haven’t discussed the rating, but both the other films were R-rated; Deadpool made $800 million globally and was an R-rated film, the new Wolverine is R-rated.”
Carnahan also revealed that the new film would have more than one villain.
“It wasn’t challenging [coming up with the antagonist]. It should’ve been,” he continued. “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.”
Bad Boys for Life is expected to cinema screens in January 2108.
