'Bad Boys' was released in 1995, followed by 'Bad Boys II' in 2003. In spite of a mixed critical reception, both films proved big money makers in the box office. The first film made $141 million at the box office from a $19 million budget while the sequel grossed $273 million worldwide.

According to Deadline, production is starting mid-January with Belgian directors Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah at the helm and a script by Chris Bremner.

The franchise’s original producer Jerry Bruckheimer is also returning.

'Bad Boys For Life' is scheduled to open on January 17, 2020.
