It’s wonderful to hear the Bad Boys franchise will continue along its once-per-decade schedule, but it’s even more wonderful to hear how Will Smith knew a threequel was in the offing. “I saw Martin [Lawrence] a few weeks ago,” Smith said during an interview with BBC Radio 1. “I haven’t seen him in about two years. We looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another Bad Boys. We’re definitely doing another one.” Sony Pictures has Bad Boys 3 slated to premiere February 17, 2017, so it must have been thrilled. Boy, can you imagine being so confident in your realizations? Or your hugs? To be fair, this is probably how Will Smith decides everything in his life. This is how Will Smith decides what to eat for lunch: a intense, soul-altering hug with the guy behind the Subway counter that will change both of their lives forever.
