Martin Lawrence confident Bad Boys 4 will go ahead with Will Smith

The status of the sequel was put in doubt following the Academy Awards in March when franchise star Smith faced public backlash for slapping Chris Rock onstage after the comedian made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith later issued an apology, and while some of his planned projects remain on hold, Lawrence is adamant the sequel to 2020's Bad Boys for Life is in the pipeline."We got one more at least.” Lawrence played Detective Sergeant Marcus Miles Burnett in the 1995 buddy cop action comedy Bad Boys with Smith portraying Detective Sergeant Mike Lowrey.
