It’s been close to two years since we last heard anything about Bad Boys For Life, the third movie in the reasonably good action movie series, but it seems like the project is still having some problems. After all, it was supposed to come out a month ago and didn’t, which is usually indicative of some issues.

But hey, at least Joe Pantoliano will reunite with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for the sequel (whenever it happens). According to Deadline’s sources, Pantoliano will reprise his role as Captain Howard from the other Bad Boys movies, and this time around he’ll most likely once again be acting as sort of a buffer between stuffy higher-ups and the controlled chaos of the Bad Boys themselves. Or maybe he’ll get to join Smith and Lawrence on the adventure, getting sweaty and blowing shit up as the camera swings around him—i.e. the classic Bad Boys scene.


Bad Boys For Life will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah from a script by Bad Boys 2's Peter Craig. Also, now that we’re thinking about it, shouldn’t Bad Boys For Life be the fourth
