Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the directors of “Bad Boys for Life,” recently revealed the news on Instagram.
Fallah posted a photo of himself in front of a “Tyler Perry Studios” sign. In the caption, he wrote, “S/O to the @tylerperrystudios and @tylerperry !!! #badboysforlife #hollywoodinatlanta lets do it!”
And Arbi snapped a selfie while on set, writing, “Back on set #badboysforlife #drarriesunited.”
For the third installment of the franchise, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will reprise their roles as Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett, respectively. This time, the two Miami detectives are attempting to take down a drug cartel.
Although Perry hosted the studio’s grand opening just a few weeks ago, a few other celebrities have also filmed at the stages.
Earlier this month, Steve Harvey revealed he shot a “special project” there, and Arsenio Hall said he was there for the “Coming to America” sequel.
