The crude language, rough humor and fast action was what made the original #BadBoys movies so popular, and it looks like we're getting more of that R-Rated action for the long-awaited Bad Boys 3.
Director Joe Carnahan chatted with Collider about what we can expect from Bad Boys For Life. First, the rating!
“I think it’s gonna be R. I don’t think we’re trying to make a PG-13 version of 'Bad Boys.' We haven’t discussed the rating, but both the other films were R-rated; 'Deadpool' made $800 million globally and was an R-rated film, the new 'Wolverine' is R-rated. I think these things don’t factor it, my theory is people gravitate more toward R-rated films than PG-13... Unless things change, I think we’re making a 'Bad Boys' film and that’s an R-rated movie.”
This is definitely in keeping with the feel of the first movie. Scenes like this one could never have happened in a movie without an R-Rating:
- Will Smith Movies, News & Rumors: All You Need To Know
- Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do? Whatcha Gonna Do 'Cause Bad Boys 3 & 4 Are Coming for You!
- Bad Boys Grow Up: Director Promises 'Very Modern' Sequel
We're also gonna see more than one Big Bad:
“It wasn’t challenging [coming up with the antagonist]. It should’ve been. You’ve got all these years in the game and you’ve made all these enemies, you’ve accumulated all this, so in that respect it would be easy. But I don’t wanna say anything else because I don’t wanna ruin the delicacy of who our antagonist is, because I think it’s very cool. It’s not one person. It’s a multi-headed hydra, I’ll say that. It works beautifully.”
