According to Variety, Alexander Ludwig, Vanessa Hudgens, and Charles Melton are all set to join Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Sony’s Bad Boys 4 Life.
Hudgens, Ludwig, and Melton will each be playing parts of a highly specialized police unit that will be attempting to work with the old school Bad Boys (Smith and Lawrence) when a new threat emerges in Miami.

Most recently, Hudgens starred in the Netflix film The Princess Switch and can be seen next in the upcoming comedy Second Act in which she stars opposite Jennifer Lopez. Melton can currently be seen as Reggie on CW’s Riverdale.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are going to be directing direct the sequel and Chris Bremmer is the current writer. Jerry Bruckheimer will be returning as a producer as will Doug Belgrad and Will Smith. The film is expected to be released Jan. 17, 2020.
