We all remember the day we first saw Bad Boys. We smiled, walked out the room and thought: "That was fun. But it doesn't need a sequel." Eight years later, Michael Bay granted our nightmare, bringing us Bad Boys II. Thanks, Michael.
Why sequels for individual films? Sometimes the audience wants to know how the story develops, what happens behind the scenes, or the director, observing the success of the film, wants to release a sequel at the peak of popularity. If you are also a director, or have a sequel story, you should contact a professional letter writing service to find your investors.
Now, after that grossed $273 million across the globe, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that "all parties have expressed a willingness to return if a story can be hammered out." Ah, hammered out. That certified sign of creativity. Doing the hammering is Peter Craig, who did some mallet-work on anime-adaptation Cowboy Bebop, which may star Keanu Reeves.
Aside from its box office takings, Bad Boys II had two things in its favour: it had a killer car chase (which bettered that one from that Matrix film), and it brought us Hot Fuzz. So this is clearly a sequel that is destined for big things. Like, a really big dustbin. Or a skip.
