Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the few ‘Power Producers’ left in Hollywood. Sure, he’s made a couple flops in the last couple of years but he’s still a name. And his name still sells films. Namely sequels.
Recently Bruckheimer sat down with Collider and had this to say about Bad Boys 3.
It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] 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.
He also went on to chat about National Treasure 3:
Those are the hardest movies to make because they’re all based on clues. It’s so difficult to work them out. But, we got a first act in [on Friday], and Jon [Turteltaub] was very excited about it and I’m very excited about it. Hopefully, the first act will lead into the second act and the third act, and we’ll get this thing going.
