‘Bad Boys 3' Film: Martin Lawrence Appears To Confirm ‘Bad Boys' Sequel - Is He Telling The Truth? (VIDEO)

Martin Lawrence has delighted ‘Bad Boys’ fans by appearing to confirm that a third film is in the works, however, we’re not too sure if the actor is telling the truth.

During an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s US talk show, Martin told the host that writers are currently working on a script for ‘Bad Boys 3’.

When Conan quizzed Martin on rumours that a new film was in the works, he replied: “Yes, I just spoke to Jerry [Bruckheimer, producer] yesterday and he said it’s real.

“They’re working on the script - it’s all good.”

However, as much as we’d love the news to be true, it seems Martin may be stretching the truth.

For the past four years, he’s remained insistent that the movie will happen, while his co-star Will Smith and Jerry have stated while the script is being written, the project still hasn’t got the green light.

Speaking back in April, Jerry stated: “It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies.

“And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, ‘Well, maybe it’s not the time for this.

"It’s just trying to get everybody together to make it. But, we’re working on the script. We have a lot of faith and hope that we’ll do it."
