Ioan Gruffudd Joins Will Smith & Martin Lawrence In ‘Bad Boys 4’
At this past week’s CinemaCon, it was revealed that the fourth film in the Bad Boys franchise had already begun filming weeks ago. However, not much was known about the film outside the return of series stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. As first reported by Deadline, the dynamic duo will be joined by Fantastic Four star Ioan Gruffudd in the cast as well.
While the initial report does not include details regarding his character. However, imagining him taking on a villainous role in the film is not hard. Gruffudd joins Paola Núnez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Alexander Ludwig, who will also reprise their roles from previous films in Bad Boys 4.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will return to direct the film after tackling 2020’s Bad Boys for Life. Chris Bremner (The Man from Toronto) penned the screenplay and Jerry Bruckheimer is on board as executive producer. In addition to their starring roles, Will Smith and Martin Lawerence will receive producer credits for the feature as well.
Ioan Gruffudd last appeared on the big screen alongside Jessica Chastain and John Malkovich in the political thriller Ava. However, the actor touts roles in hit films like San Andreas, Fantastic Four, and James Cameron’s Titanic. Most recently, Gruffudd starred alongside Ivanna Sakhno in the miniseries The Reunion.
