No Martin Lawrence, no. Not only did the famed actor and comedian dead any chance of a reunion of his namesake sitcom, he also denied that those Bad Boys movie sequels are ever happening.
Reports Page Six:
“A reunion? No, we’ve done everything that we could do,” Martin Lawrence told Page Six Tuesday. “There will be no reunion.”
Though Lawrence, 52, didn’t go into detail, he did make clear that skipping out on the nostalgia route wasn’t because of bad blood with the cast.
“I talk to Tichina [Arnold], Carl [Anthony Payne II] and I ran into Tisha [Campbell-Martin],” he said of his “Martin” co-stars. “Yeah, we’ve talked.”
Determined to only look ahead, Lawrence denied rumors of any more “Bad Boys” sequels starring him and Will Smith — despite both “Bad Boys for Life” and “Bad Boys 4” appearing on his IMDb page.
“There can’t be a ‘Bad Boys 4’ if there hasn’t even been a ‘Bad Boys 3,’ ” he pointed out. “The whole ‘Bad Boys’ — there’s no ‘Bad Boys’ going on. There’s no ‘Bad Boys.’ ”
Lawrence has a bunch of other stuff going on—an emoji app and TV projects—but we’re stuck on this now Bad Boys sequel debacle.
Not one but two sequels to the pair of movies starring Lawrence and Will Smith have long been rumored. Just a few years ago, it was Lawrence who confirmed it was in the works.
But then again, maybe it’s better to let the classics be.
Either way, we blame Trump for this.
