Spread the Word
Martin Lawrence & Will Smith are two very talented actors in Hollywood. Back in 1995, the duo teamed up and starred in the movie titled Bad Boys. Their performances in the movie showed us how talented they are in making people laugh.
The first Bad Boys movie did so well at the box office. When they released a sequel in 2003 titled Bad Boys II, they managed to make a ton of money at the box office again. Many thought that was the end of the Bad Boys franchise but in 2020, we will be seeing Lawrence and Smith team up with each other for the new Bad Boys For Life movie.
Lawrence and Smith are currently in Miami filming for the third installment of the franchise. Just like any other Hollywood production, producers of the movie had to secure permits from the Miami-Dade County Office of Film and Entertainment. They also need to gather all the camera equipment needed and make sure they know of a data recovery Miami just in case anything happens to their files.
One of the places they are shooting scenes in is the Jose Marti Park which is located in Little Havana. The swimming pool area, dance room, and gym are all going to be used for the filming. They reportedly mentioned in their permit that “simulated gunfire and gunshot wounds” will be included in their scenes.
The City of Miami Beach Film & Print Office issued permits saying that the movie will be filming scenes around the sixth and tenth streets of Ocean Drive. The beach near this area will be closed down for safety purposes. It’s safe to say we will be seeing some jaw-dropping stunts in the movie.
Other sources have mentioned that Smith and Lawrence have already shot some fight scenes in Miami Beach’s Broadmoor Hotel. Prior to the cast and crew heading over to Miami, scenes in Atlanta, Georgia were already shot back in January 2019. They were reportedly spotted in the downtown area of Atlanta.
On April 14, 2019, which is a Sunday, the Bad Boys For Life movie is set to shoot some action-packed scenes on the MacArthur Causeway. They will be filming from 2 pm until 4 pm and they will make use of both the westbound and eastbound lanes. Those who intend to pass MacArthur Causeway that day are advised to take the Julia Tuttle Causeway or Venetian Causeway instead.
It seems like the new Bad Boys sequel was given a very big budget so we are sure it won’t disappoint once it is released. If you watched the first two installments in the franchise, you would notice that they always shot the films in Miami. Well, the story, after all, is about two narcotics detectives who are based in Miami.
Michael Bay was the director of the first two films but this time, Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are taking over. Other than Lawrence and Smith, other famous people like Vanessa Hudgens, DJ Khaled, and Riverdale’s Charles Melton are set to appear in the movie as well. Bad Boys For Life will hit theaters on January 17, 2020.
