There’s just something about the Bad Boys franchise that both fans and the film’s stars just cant get enough of. As Gabrielle Union prepares for her own televised spin-off of the action-comedy, Will Smith is now inquiring about a third installment, asking his partner in crime, Martin Lawrence, if he’s ready to put in work on their latest movie.
The Oscar-nominated actor took to Instagram to wish Lawrence a happy birthday, sharing a photo of their May 1995 JET magazine cover and asking if the comedic genius is ready to go.
“Happy Birthday to the Best Damn partner EVER!!! What you think Marty-Mar? One more time? @martinlawrence”
