Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back in Atlanta to film "Bad Boys 3."
Bad Boys 3 is officially in motion as both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have reprised their roles as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett for the new installment in the franchise. The film's new installment has been in the works as release dates and production began to get pushed back. However, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are officially back in action as they've touched down in Atlanta to begin filming their upcoming film, Bad Boys For Life.
TMZ reports that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence began filming in Atlanta yesterday for Bad Boys 3. Although the two actors are in their 50s and it's been over 20 years since the first Bad Boys movie, they're clearly still fit to pull off a few stunts.
Unfortunately, shooting the film caused a bit of an issue for Atlanta locals. WSBTV reports that the production of the film shut down Peachtree Road which many weren't pleased about.
The filming permit requested that the city allow them "to close a portion of State Route (SR) 141 (Peachtree Road) and conduct intermittent traffic control (ITC) in order to film segments of the movie 'Bad Boys 3' in the city of Atlanta. This event is scheduled for Monday, January 14, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.”
As Will Smith and Martin Lawrence start filming the movie, Bad Boys 3 is expected to hit theatres in January 2020.
