Bruckheimer Confirms Development on Bad Boys 3

In the past few months, there's been quite a bit of chatter about Will Smith returning to some of his most famous franchises as they receive the threequel treatment. In fact, just this week it was confirmed that Smith would start shooting Men in Black III with Tommy Lee Jones this fall for a summer 2012 release date.

There's also been talk in the past year about Sony reuniting Smith with Martin Lawrence and Michael Bay for Bad Boys 3 with a screenwriter having been hired last summer, though it seemed somewhat dubious even last month when Lawrence confirmed to MTV that the project was "real."

At the UK junket for Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time, ComingSoon.net asked the Big Kahuna, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, if there was a possibility we'd see him, Michael Bay and Smith working together for the first time since Bad Boys 2 back in 2003, presumably once Bay and Smith finish their current threequels, Transformers 3 and Men in Black III, respectively.

The producer was more prudent with his choice of words on the project than Lawrence, saying, "It's a wish and a hope and a dream. We've been working on a screenplay, which is excellent. It's an idea Will gave us, so hopefully, it will come to fruition, we would love it to."

Being that the first Bad Boys was the big breakthrough movie for Bay, Smith and Lawrence 15 years ago--seems like longer, doesn't it?--it certainly would be interesting to see them do a third movie maybe with some of the modern edge they've seen since been exploring.

EXCLUSIVE: Will Smith Has A 'Terrific' Idea For The 'Bad Boys 3' Story

Interview with Jerry Bruckheimer:

"We're talking about it," he said. "Will Smith came up with a terrific idea for a screenplay, and we've been working on a script, so we'll keep our fingers crossed."

What this means of course is that Bruckheimer has also spoken with the duo about reprising their roles as Detectives Lowery and Burnett. "Of course. They're the guys. Will would love to do it, and I think Martin would too."

Now the question is, what is Smith's idea? Bruckheimer's not saying. "I can't give that up yet. Maybe next time."

A Script Exists For Bad Boys 3

Sony has tapped "The Town" scripter Peter Craig to adapt the French Canadian hit "Fathers and Guns" for Columbia Pictures.

Comedy-thriller, about a father-son cop duo assigned to investigate an outdoor adventure group for fathers and sons, is being developed and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall.

The original pic, "De pere en flic," became one of Quebec's biggest local hits when it launched there in summer 2009 and earned more than $10 million.

Pic's producer Denise Robert and writer-director Emile Gaudreault will share producing credits on Sony's remake.

Warner Bros.' "The Town," which grossed nearly $90 million domestically, was Craig's first screenwriting credit.

He is currently working on a script for Sony's "Bad Boys 3."

Craig is repped by CAA and Management 360.
