Vanessa Hudgens Joins Bad Boys III



High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens has signed on to join Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys III (which is also, confusingly, sometimes named Bad Boys 4 Life by the studio).

Vanessa Hudgens, alongside other new recruits Alexander Ludwig (Vikings) and Charles Melton (Riverdale), will portray members of a modern, coordinated police unit that clashes with the decidedly old-school Bad Boys (Smith and Lawrence). Yeah, they’re pulling that story.

The script has gone through three writers thus far (Peter Craig, Joe Carnahan, and Chris Bremmer), and the feature will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. The film’s villain is still yet to be cast, with the flick reportedly a month out from shooting.

Bad Boys III/Bad Boys 4 Life/Bad Boys 5: The Last Knight/2 Bad 2 Boys: Tokyo Drift is set for a 17th January, 2020 release.
