Bad Boys: Ride or Die Movie:

Bad Boys: Ride or Die is an American action comedy film starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the fourth installment of the Bad Boys series of buddy cop films. The sequel to Bad Boys for Life (2020), it is directed by Adil & Bilall and written by Chris Bremner and Will Beall. Joe Pantoliano, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Paola Núñez, Jacob Scipio, and DJ Khaled reprise their roles from the previous film with Tasha Smith taking over the role of Theresa Burnett from Theresa Randle, who previously played the character in the last three films. New cast members include Eric Dane, Ioan Gruffudd, Rhea Seehorn, Melanie Liburd and Tiffany Haddish. It follows Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett trying to clear the name of their late Captain, Conrad Howard, falsely accused of conspiracy.

Following the opening weekend box-office success of Bad Boys for Life, Sony announced plans for a fourth installment, with Chris Bremner returning to write the script.

In April 2022, it was reported that development for the fourth film was being put on hold in light of the incident with Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony. However, the following month Sony head chairman Tom Rothman confirmed the fourth film was still in development, despite the previous report.

In February 2023, Smith announced that he and Lawrence would reprise their roles for the film, which was in pre-production, with Adil & Bilall returning to direct. That same month, it was reported by musician/disc jockey Questlove that Smith had to drop out of a planned surprise appearance at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards because pre-production for the fourth Bad Boys film had started earlier that week.

In March 2023, it was revealed that Vanessa Hudgens would reprise her role as Kelly from Bad Boys for Life. In April 2023, it was announced that Eric Dane had been cast, reportedly as the villain and that Paola Núñez and Alexander Ludwig would also reprise their roles from Bad Boys for Life. The same month, Ioan Gruffudd joined the cast. In May 2023, it was announced that Rhea Seehorn had joined the cast.

The film was originally under the working title Bad Boys: Ride or Die by co-director Adil El Arbi.

Principal photography began on April 3, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia, and Miami, Florida. On May 22, 2023, TMZ released behind-the-scenes clips of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence filming scenes of the movie in Atlanta. Filming was suspended in July due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike.

Bad Boys 4 was released in theaters on June 7, 2024. The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 3, 2019, but was moved up to May 24, 2019, before being pulled from the schedule. In July 2023, it was announced that the film would be released on June 14, 2024. In February 2024, the release date was moved up to its current date.
