Bad Boys for Life will apparently follow the titular Bad Boys as they butt heads with a new special forces police unit while responding to a new threat in Miami. Details about Khaled’s role in the film is unknown. He won’t be the only newcomer on the film though as Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio, and Paola Nuñez are all new to the franchise as well.
Production on the film is currently underway in Atlanta. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are taking over directorial duties from Michael Bay for the third installment.
Bad Boys for Life hits theaters on January 17th, 2020.
