It has been 22 years since Michael Bay’s Dangerous Boys exploded in theaters, and I can nonetheless hear Martin Lawrence saying “Mike Lowww-rey” as if it was simply yesterday. However whereas Lawrence’s Marcus Burnett is not probably quickly to return to the stalled-out Bad Boys universe, we’d very effectively see the character’s sister, Gabrielle Union’s Sydney Barrett, making the massive soar to tv quickly for a at present untitled spinoff of the hit movies.
Gabrielle Union is ready to go again to the position of Syd for the Dangerous Boys TV sequence, though it is unclear if she would nonetheless be working with the DEA, as she was in Dangerous Boys II, or if that can have modified. Producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Doug Belgrad might be working behind the scenes with the latter’s 2.zero Leisure and Main Wave Leisure. Sony Photos TV Studios could be the studio, and although no networks have formally proven any curiosity, Deadline studies there’s main curiosity from a number of totally different locations, and a noteworthy deal is anticipated to be made sooner or later. This appears ripe for Showtime, FX or maybe even Netflix.
The inventive workforce behind the Dangerous Boys spinoff might be The Blacklist writers and producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier. They’re fairly versed on the planet of twisty crime-dramas with motion thrives, so that can match up properly with the world of Dangerous Boys.
That is positively excellent news for followers of Gabrielle Union, whose BET sequence Being Mary Jane was cancelled recently, although it will be getting a TV film finale in early 2018 to wrap up the story utterly. Her administration firm, the aforementioned Main Wave, was apparently who first began placing the challenge collectively in a shift towards TV improvement. And may the spinoff be wherever almost as action-packed because the movies, audiences needs to be pumped to get a badass actress like Union main issues.
With a lot of movies getting the TV treatment nowadays, both by means of spinoffs or outright remakes, it isn’t so stunning that Dangerous Boys would enter the fray, contemplating followers have been clamoring for a 3rd film to be produced ever because the smoke cleared round Dangerous Boys II in 2003. Jerry Bruckheimer solely just lately mentioned that the long-awaited sequel still isn’t out of contention but, with a brand new author being introduced in to offer it a go. Simply do not search for Michael Bay to be concerned, as he’s not too interested.
Whereas we’ll probably be ready some time to listen to something extra concrete about the place the Dangerous Boys spinoff will land, you may head to our fall TV premiere schedule to see all the opposite variations and extra that can hit the small display screen quickly.
