Bad Boys III in the Works

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.
