The dynamic duo of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence has expressed their willingness to reprise their roles as Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett for a potential ‘Bad Boys 5‘, provided certain conditions are met. The recent box office success of ‘Bad Boys: Ride or Die‘ has reignited discussions about the franchise’s future.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Smith and Lawrence outlined the prerequisites for their involvement in another ‘Bad Boys’ sequel. Both actors emphasized the importance of having a meaningful story and character development arc that would justify asking fans to return to theaters.

Smith stated, “As long as there’s a reason — I never wanted to be one of those dudes who make sequels just because people will go. I want to make them because there is something to say and the characters have a place that they’re developing to that will be interesting and fun to watch and maybe even a little helpful.”

Lawrence echoed similar sentiments, saying, “We’ll have to see. You know I never say never, but it also has to make sense. If the fans ask for it, you know we could be back.”

With a solid opening weekend haul of over $105 million, the movie has a chance to surpass the previous highest-grossing entry, ‘Bad Boys for Life’.

If ‘Ride or Die’ continues to perform well, it could provide the necessary momentum and financial incentive for ‘Bad Boys 5’ to move forward, especially if fan demand remains strong.

While Smith and Lawrence are open to returning, they have acknowledged the need for adjustments to accommodate their advancing ages.

Smith jokingly stated, “Well, these younger actors are going to need to do more of the stunts, that’s for sure.”

Additionally, both actors emphasized the importance of a compelling character arc and meaningful storytelling to justify another sequel, rather than simply capitalizing on the franchise’s popularity.
