Martin Lawrence claims that the Oscars sl’ap won’t stop Bad Boys 4 from happening

Martin Lawrence has stated that he has no intention of ceasing his filming with Will Smith for the fourth entry in the series. We have one more at least, Lawrence said in an interview with Ebony. It makes natural that the pair would collaborate once more to develop a film that would succeed Bad Boys for Life, which brought in $426 million worldwide. Smith’s career, however, came to an end after this year’s Oscar snub. Since then, the sequel to Smith’s Netflix film Bright was cancelled for reasons unconnected to the incident, and Smith’s third National Geographic series, Pole to Pole, was briefly shelved.

Apple delayed the distribution of Emancipation until 2023, despite the movie’s potential for film festivals and an Oscar contender the following year. Sony’s chairman Tom Rothman disputed rumors that the studio had halted work on Bad Boys 4 as a result of the Oscars rebuke. That movie has been and is still in production. Because the automobile wasn’t moving, there were no brakes to pump, according to Rothman, who spoke to Deadline.

I don’t think it’s really in my place to comment, but I do want to say that I’ve known Will Smith for a long time and that I know him to be a good man. That was a very unfortunate thing that happened. He went on to say that that was an illustration of a very decent guy having a very awful moment in front of the world. I think his regret and repentance are sincere, and I think there is hope for redemption.
