DJ Khaled has rounded out the cast of Sony’s upcoming ‘Bad Boys’ sequel ‘Bad Boys for Lif3.’ Also known as ‘Bad Boys for Life,’ Khaled joins returning stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
Khaled will also join series newcomers Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio, and Paola Nuñez. Joe Pantoliano is on board to return as Captain Howard.
It is currently unknown who Khaled will be playing in the movie.
The hit-making music producer has slowly started dipping his toe in acting. He has already shot the Jamie Foxx film ‘All Star Weekend.’ Moreover, he recently lent his voice to the Fox Animation movie ‘Spies in Disguise.’
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing the sequel, instead of Michael Bay. The script was originally by Peter Craig (‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,’ ‘Transformers’). Joe Carnahan also did a rewrite, and Chris Bremmer is the current writer.
The story revolves around a modern, highly specialized police unit that collides with the old school Bad Boys (Smith and Lawrence) when a new threat emerges in Miami. Production is currently underway. The film will release on January 17, 2020.
