Los Angeles - Plans to make Bad Boys 3 are progressing, according to Martin Lawrence.
The comedian, who starred in the first two films in the franchise alongside Will Smith, revealed the news during an interview with US talk-show host Conan O'Brien.
Asked whether Bad Boys 3 will happen, the 49-year-old said: "I believe so. Yes."
He added: "I just talked to producer Jerry Bruckheimer and he said it's real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good."Lawrence did hint at a sequel in July when he sent out this teaser on Twitter.

One of the biggest obstacles to making the film will be getting co-star Will Smith on board - an issue Bruckheimer discussed in April.
He said: "It's so funny because we'll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will is off doing two movies. And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, 'Well, maybe it's not the time for this.'
"And then, Ride Along came out and was a big hit, and now they're all excited to make the movie, but Will is off doing something else. It's just trying to get everybody together to make it. But, we're working on the script. We have a lot of faith and hope that we'll do it."Watch the interview here:
