Okay, Bad Boys For Life, the long overdue capper to the Bad Boys trilogy will finally be arriving early next year, and Sony Pictures Entertainment has just released the first trailer.
The film reunites Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in a film about two reckless cops. While Michael Bay helmed the first two, the director is sitting this one out, leaving Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to fill the Bayhem void. And judging by the looks of this trailer, there are plenty of expensive cars, Smith and Lawrence banter, slow-motion gun shooting, and goofy dialogue. Check out the trailer below.
Following the success of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds teased the idea of getting an X-Force film off the ground. The film would follow a black-ops team of mutants, led by the time-traveling Cable, that would take a more proactive stance against threats to mutantkind. Recently, it was confirmed that Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces) would pen the script. But that still left the film without a director.
Now there’s word that Fox has tapped Drew Goddard, writer of films like Cloverfield and Deadpool 2, to write and direct X-Force. More on the story below.
MGM has released the first trailer for Death Wish, a remake (or “re-imagining”) of the 1974 revenge thriller of the same name starring Charles Bronson.
The remake is helmed by Cabin Fever, Hostel, and The Green Inferno director Eli Roth, and stars Bruce Willis in the same role Bronson played in the original, Elisabeth Shue, and Camila Morrone. The screenplay was penned by Joe Carnahan, the writer and director of Smokin’ Aces, The Grey, and the upcoming remake of The Raid.
Continue below to read a synopsis and check out the trailer.
It was recently revealed that The Grey and Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan will be making a re-imagining of the hit Indonesian action flick The Raid with Frank Grillo starring. This in addition to working on the screenplays for both X-Force and the Uncharted video game movie.
All of these projects led many to wonder when Carnahan would get to Bad Boys 3, also known as Bad Boys for Life, which he has been attached to since June of 2015. We now have an answer to this question. Carnahan has walked away from the long in development trilogy-maker, leaving Sony to find a new director.
The success of Deadpool proved that R-rated comic book movies could work. So in light of its success, Fox is following it up with Logan and a Deadpool sequel. The former is set to hit theaters next week, while the latter is still in the early stages of writing.
But one film Ryan Reynolds would very much like to see happen is X-Force. The actor has spoken about his interest in bringing the title to the big screen in the past. Now it’s being reported that Joe Carnahan is writing the script, so it looks like we are that much closer to it being a reality. More on the story below.
