The original Bad Boys film, directed by Michael Bay in 1995, was one of Will Smith's earliest film roles to launch him in the spotlight before appearing in other blockbusters. Bay returned to the characters in Bad Boys 2 in 2003, well after the actor had established himself as one of Hollywood's most in-demand actors.

But the latest entry in the franchise, Bad Boys for Life, opened in theaters on Jan. 17, 2020 to positive reviews and a sizable box office take. However, the movie was abruptly taken out of cinemas when the beginning of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced movie theaters and most of the United States to shut down.

Bad Boys for Life was directed by the talented upcoming directors, Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, whose film schedule has gotten booked for the next couple of years. The duo has been attached to direct an HBO MAX movie based on the popular superhero, Batgirl, with In the Heights' Leslie Grace attached to the role of Barbara Gordon.

It was also just announced that the pair would be helming the long-in-development Beverly Hills Cop 4, featuring the return of Eddie Murphy in the iconic role of Axel Foley, with the film having been added to Netflix's lineup of projects for the streaming platform.
