AceShowbiz - Will Smith and Martin Lawrence recently created a legendary moment with Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes and Tracy Morgan when they filmed on the same set. The stars of "Bad Boys for Life" and the "Coming 2 America" bumped into each other at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta on Wednesday, October 30.
After sharing a photo from their iconic meeting, Smith has now posted on his Instagram account a video of their spirited reunion. The "Gemini Man" actor was seen calling Murphy's name, telling him to come out as he and Lawrence approached Murphy's trailer.
Smith, Lawrence, Murphy and Snipes excitedly greeted each other before they posed for a group photo. Morgan was then seen joining the foursome, still wearing his character's green outfit before excusing himself to get back to work.
Joking that they almost shut down the production that day because of their spirited meeting, Smith captioned the video, "You can't put @BadBoys 3 next to Coming to America 2 at @TylerPerryStudios and expect us to get ANY work done :-)"
In "Bad Boys for Life", Smith and Lawrence reprise their roles as Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett respectively. They reunite once again when a fierce Romanian mob boss, whose brother they defeated, exacts retaliation just as the duo are about to officially retire.
Directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the third "Bad Boys" movie is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on January 17, 2020. Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig and Charles Melton also star as a new team of young cops.
As for the "Coming to America" sequel, it follows Prince Akeem Joffer (Murphy), who is set to become King of Zamunda when he discovers he has a son he never knew about in America, a street savvy Queens native named Lavelle (Jermaine Fowler). Honoring his royal father's (James Earl Jones) dying wish to groom this son as the crown prince, Akeem and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) set off to America once again.
Craig Brewer serves behind the lens for the comedy film. David Sheffield, Barry W. Blaustein and Kenya Barris pen the script based on a story by Murphy. It is due out December 18, 2020 in the United States.
