Gabrielle Union is Down with Reprising Her Role in ‘Bad Boys 3’ with Will Smith & Martin Lawrence

*Martin Lawrence and Will Smith reunited last week to announce that “Bad Boys for Life,” the third film in the “Bad Boys” franchise, is officially happening… but will it include Gabrielle Union?

In case you missed it, watch Will and Martin’s video announcement below.

The actress reacted to Smith and Lawrence’s social media post with eyeball emojis and a telephone, which basically translates to: “Call Me.”

Union played Lawrence’s younger sister in “Bad Boys 2” and Smith’s love interest. As reported by movieweb.com, her response to the long-awaited sequel comes after NBC canceled her “Bad Boys” TV spin-off.

As we previously reported, on Instagram Wednesday, Smith and Lawrence confirmed that “Bad Boys for Life” is finally moving forward, and they’re reprising their roles as Detectives Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett.

In a video shared by Smith, the actors tell viewers that the new movie is going to happen.

“I’m telling y’all…this is crazy, wait, wait, just wait..it’s official!” Smith yells in the video with Lawrence by his side.

“That’s it, no more, y’all can’t handle no more of that!”

The news follows more than a decade of rumors, confirmations, and delays for a follow-up to “Bad Boys II,” which was released 15 years ago.

In 2015, Sony confirmed that “Bad Boys III,” as it was initially titled, was set for a February 2017 release. In 2016, the date was pushed back to January 2018.

The original movie grossed $65 million and the second installment bagged $138m worldwide.

Michael Bay directed the first two films. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will helm “Bad Boys For Life” — which is now set for release on January 17th, 2020.
