We might be getting Bad Boys 3 after all.

After initially being pegged for a 2018 release the film's production was curbed last year, but now it looks like it's back on.

Deadline reports the third instalment of the hit film series is being brought to the screen, with an August production date in sight.

Sony Pictures is negotiating with directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct the third movie, Bad Boys For Life.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will return to star, as will producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Deadline says Bad Boys For Life has "long been a priority project" for Sony.

It'll be the first movie in the series in 15 years, with Bad Boys II released way back in 2003.

The film had long been scheduled until director Joe Carnahan left the project last year due to scheduling conflicts, with Sony removing it from their schedule a few months later.
