Even before "Bad Boys for Life" exceeded industry projections to deliver at $73.4 million domestic opening this weekend, Sony Pictures had already begun early development of the next film in the franchise.

The trade magazine Variety said Friday  that Chris Bremner — who co-wrote the "Bad Boys for Life" screenplay with story creators Peter Craig and Joe Carnahan — had been retained for a projected fourth film featuring Miami police detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence). The current film follows the Smith-Lawrence "Bad Boys" (1995) and "Bad Boys II" (2003).

Neither of the stars have commented publicly on the report.
