He told Digitalspy.co.uk that the movie’s producers were currently working on a script.
“They’re working on a script now,” Lawrence said. “That’s something I think looks very real. Will Smith told me that he wanted to do it as well.”
He added: “[producer and director] Michael Bay, I heard, was on board and [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer. We’ll see.”
The Bad Boys films starred Lawrence and Smith as detectives who work in the narcotics division of the Maimi-Dade Police.
