Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have confirmed that Bad Boys 3 is officially going ahead.
The Fresh Prince actor, who played Detective Mike Lowrey, announced the news in an enthusiastic video on Instagram, to his 24.4 million followers.
The third instalment in the franchise - Bad Boys For Life - will start production in mid-January.
The 1995 original was one of Smith's first major film roles and despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, its commercial success catapulted him into global superstardom as the film grossed $141 million worldwide.
In 2003 the duo returned for Bad Boys II and despite receiving generally negative reviews, the second instalment to the series was another box office success, which grossed over $273 million.
Bad Boys For Life is scheduled to open on January 17, 2020.
