Los Angeles, Jun 19 (PTI) Filmmaker Michael Bay, who directed “Bad Boys” and its sequel, is not part of the third film but he said it needs to be brought out soon or else there will be no point in making the project.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence fronted the franchise.

“Bad Boys” was a huge success for Sony Pictures upon its initial release in 1995. Its sequel released in 2003.

A third and even fourth film has been apparently planned by Sony Pictures, reported Screen Rant.

“Pretty soon they’re going to be old boys, okay? Pretty soon they’re going to be retired cops instead of active-duty cops,” Bay told CinemaBlend.

“It’s taken a long time to get that thing going, and I’m not involved in getting it going. They should get it going soon, though. You could definitely get Martin and Will to be funny again those were fun movies to do.”
