Cast Member Replaced in Upcoming Bad Boys 4

We all remember Bad Boys as the king of action movies, one that left a legendary standard in its wake. From the fabled, treasured song to an unfailing love for the two main characters that has survived three movies already. Since the first Bad Boys movie in 1995 to now. One would think that the success of these three movies would be enough to satisfy the creators — it’s no question that sometimes the prolongment of a good thing can sometimes ruin it — but they have against all odds decided to go for a fourth, and with the replacement of one of its cast members, it seems like it’s not off to a great start.

While directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are set to return, and lead stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith will still feature in the film, Theresa Randle, who has played Matin’s wife in every Bad Boys film to date, will no longer be a part of the series.

The reasons for why Theresa Randle won’t be coming back is unknown, but she will be replaced with actress Tasha Smith.

Tasha Smith is best known for Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?, Empire, and First Wives Club. While also being a director and having credits on Mayor of Kingstown and Bel-Air.

To make up for this unexpected cast replacement, however, the movie seems to come with many new movie stars.

Along with Martin Lawrence and Will Smith in the film, there will be Vanessa Hudgens as an Advanced Miami Metro Operations (AMMO) weapons expert, Paola Núñez as Captain Rita Secada, Alexander Ludwig as AMMO tech specialist, and Eric Dane as chief villain.

Bad Boys 4 will also be one of Smith’s most distinguished new projects since the controversy of the Oscars — his slapping of Chris Rock.

While no release date for Bad Boys 4 has been revealed, filming began on April 2023, and Lawrence claims it has potential “to be the biggest one” yet.

The original Bad Boys earned $141 million at the global box office, being topped by Bad Boys II with $273 million, and once again being overpassed by Bad Boys for Life with $426.5 million. Let’s see if this upcoming film follows tradition by taking the lead.
