Will Smith Allegedly Making $11 Million More Than Martin Lawrence In “Bad Boys 3” Movie
Reportedly, Martin has snagged $6 million for the film that will be released in 2020. Meanwhile, Will is said to have landed $17 million.
Allegedly, the pair once were paid roughly $20 million for each film, but both lowered their salary for “Bad Boys for Life”.
Will will also likely score an impressive paycheck from Netflix for ‘Bright 2’. Reportedly, he’ll make $35 million to reprise his role.
Will’s most recent film credits include Aladdin (which comes out later this year), Bright (2017), Collateral Beauty (2016), Suicide Squad (2016) and Concussion (2015).
Martin’s latest film credits include: The Beach Bum (which will be released later this year), Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (2011), Death At A Funeral (2010) and College Road Trip (2008).
As previously reported, ‘Bad Boys’ filming wrapped earlier this month in Mexico. Will shared the news on social media. The pair posed on set, holding umbrellas. Will captioned the post,
That’s a Wrap! @BadBoys For Life – Ciudad de México. Now hand me a Margarita and a pack of tropical fruit bubblicious.
Based on the caption, it looks like part of the film will take place in Mexico City. Back in January, both stars gave the first official look at them in action on set. They both premiered the sneak peek on their Instagram pages. Their captions read:
FIRST LOOK! Theeeeey’re BAAAAaaaack! :-) @badboys
