Joe Carnahan has said he believes the forthcoming Bad Boys movie (Bad Boys for Life) will be the strongest in terms of story yet.
Speaking to io9 Gizmodo, the director said he is also aware of the pressure to get this third movie right.
“Unless you’re Toy Story 3, usually third ones aren’t the strongest,” he said. “I think this one will be the strongest of the trilogy thus far.”
The Grey director also said the movie will be just as funny as the previous two.
“There’s a lot of funny sh*t in this movie, and there’s also a very mysterious, but tonally spot-on story that I think is kind of perfect for where we are in this day and age, where the guys are and reflectively, a very modern take on these guys. It’s kind of what becomes of Bad Boys when they’re not boys anymore,” he added.
Jerry Bruckheimer will once again produce with a screenplay by David Guggenheim (Safe House).
Bad Boys for Life will hit cinema screens on January 12, 2018.
