Bad Boys 3 Movie in 2012?

Bad Boys III MovieSony Pictures wants to produce a new Bad Boys movie! There has been talk of a Bad Boys 3 movie since a while, but nothing really concrete until Sony announced a few weeks ago that they have hired Scriptwriter Peter Craig to pen the screenplay of this third Bad Boys movie.

The Bad Boys movie franchise may not win the disdainful critics, but the public does enjoy watching the adventures of Miami detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence), and the two previous movies have been real blockbusters. So no wonder that a new Bad Boys sequel is under development.

Director Michael Bay is kind of busy with the Transformers 3, but he did say that he'd be glad to helm Bad Boys 3. That is, when he'll have time, so not before 2012...

Both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are more than likely to reprise their roles. There was a doubt about Will Smith who's become a huge star in between, but the first Bad Boys movie started his Hollywood career, so he feels some attachment for the franchise. Fortunately he kind of lifted that doubt:

"We need 'Bad Boys 3.' I was just watching 'Bad Boys 2' with my son and I told him you can’t open a movie better. That’s the best movie opening ever!"
Will Smith

Let's knock on wood for the whole crew to come back for Bad Boys 3, especially Will Smith and Martin Lawrence!

Any suggestion to Scriptwriter Peter Craig about the plot of this upcoming Bad Boys III movie?
