After a series of false starts and soul-crushing rumors, Bad Boys 3 is finally (really) officially (for real!) happening. In a recent BBC Radio 1Xtra interview, Will Smith offered a brief but very comforting update on the status of the long-awaited sequel and his rekindled friendship with franchise co-star Martin Lawrence.

"I saw Martin [Lawrence] a few weeks ago," Smith reveals. "I haven't seen him in about two years. We looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another Bad Boys. We're definitely doing another one."

For those only here for the raw facts, the key word is "definitely." Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are "definitely" about to make Bad Boys 3 a reality.
