Bad Boys 3 AND Rambo 5!
This awesome news comes from Moviehole...
Umpteen years after co-star Joe Pantoliano told Moviehole's Clint Morris (who is knee-deep in film work at the moment, hence yours unruly getting to make it with the keyboard) if there's ever a "Bad Boys 3" - and he didn't sound confident - that he'll likely be so old he'll be acting from a wheelchair, The Hollywood Reporter has announced plans for said second sequel. (And that clinking sound is the faint murmur of Joey Pants' buckled wheelchair tyres as he wheels down to the Sony offices... pen in hand).
In all seriousness (in other words, Joey still has the use of his legs), nobody - not even headline-acts Will Smith and Martin Lawrence - has officially signed for "Bad Boys 3" yet, but Sony are happy for the trades to announce that the flick is in the cards. Ideally, the studio would love to get Michael Bay back to direct... but that too is up-in-the-air. The only certainty is that Peter Craig is writing the screenplay. Oh, and that it'll likely feature lots of flipping cars, explosions and cussing. And maybe a sexy female lead. Oh, and maybe Joey Pants.
And speaking of sequels, Nu Image/Millennium has officially announced "Rambo 5" - which will again be directed by it's star, Sylvester Stallone.
As previously rumored, the new film will be set on American soil. Variety says the "storyline revolves around Rambo fighting his way through human traffickers and drug lords to rescue a young girl abducted near the U.S.-Mexico border. Production will start in the spring."
And I'm assuming Rambo's father will feature in this one? And if so, can he please be played by Brian Dennehy? (wouldn't that be the shizzle!?)
