Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the first Bad Boys film featuring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence was released? Fans of the Bad Boys franchise worldwide can now rejoice because Sony Pictures announced a new slate of films including the long-awaited announcement of the buddy cop sequels.

Variety reported on Sony’s big announcement, which includes sequels to other popular franchises and remakes to blockbusters of time’s past. Along with Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4, both coming in 2017 and 2019 respectively, there will be a remake of Jumanji and the first entry into Stephen King’s The Dark Tower franchise.

More from Variety:

“Bad Boys 3″ is set for Feb. 17, 2017, with “Bad Boys 4″ slated to bow July 3, 2019. The first two pics starred Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, though it’s unknown whether those two actors are on board for the next two movies.

The first installment in the adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” franchise will bow on Jan 13, 2017. Nikolaj Arcel is directing.

Sony is hoping for an award season push for “Passengers” by slating the film to bow on Dec. 21, 2016. Besides starring [Jennifer] Lawrence and [Chris] Pratt, “Imitation Game” director Morten Tyldum is on board to direct.

Sony also added that the Ghostbusters remake will be released on July 15, 2016. Also, Resident Evil 6 is coming in January 2017. Six Resident Evil movies? Who knew?
