Vanessa Hudgens (34) reprises her role in "Bad Boys 4". This was reported by the industry magazine "Deadline". Accordingly, as in the third part of the film, she will play the weapons expert Kelly alongside Will Smith (54) and Martin Lawrence (57).
Sony had already confirmed in February that Smith and Lawrence would be in front of the camera together for the fourth part of "Bad Boys". The directors of the predecessor, "Bad Boys For Life", Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, will also return for the new installment. The project, based on the script by Chris Bremner, is currently in pre-production. Filming is scheduled to begin in the next few months.
In the film, Hudgens plays Kelly, who works with the Advanced Miami Metro Operations ("A.M.M.O.") unit. The plot of Bad Boys 4 is currently classified, but the third film ends with the eponymous Bad Boys, Detectives Michael "Mike" Lowrey (Smith) and Detective Marcus Burnett (Lawrence), taking charge of the "A.M.M.O. " take over.
Before the cinemas had to close in March 2020 due to the corona pandemic, "Bad Boys For Life" grossed 426 million dollars (approx. 397,000 million euros) at the worldwide box office.
