Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

We're pretty sure Michael Bay has a devious plan to blow up every square inch of Miami-Dade County... if only through the film magic of CGI. So it's not much of a surprise that the third film in his Bad Boys franchise is in the works

Starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as your favorite Miami detective duo this side of Crockett and Tubbs, the previous two films, released in '95 and '03, have grossed more than $400 million at the box office. 

Neither Bay, Smith, nor Lawrence has officially signed on, but novelist turned action movie scripter Peter Craig is working on a script in the hopes it will entice all three back. 

Of course, there's no promise the action will stay in Miami. But as long as it's not Bad Boys Down Under or Bad Boys in Space, we can deal. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
