Jacob Scipio (“Hunter Killer”) will play the villain and Paola Nunez (“The Son”) has scored a key co-starring role opposite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in “Bad Boys for Life” at Sony Pictures.
The story centers on the Miami P.D. and its elite AMMO team’s attempt to take down drug cartel head and cold-blooded killer Armando Armas (Scipio).
Nunez will portray Rite, a tough and funny criminal psychologist who is the newly appointed head of AMMO and Mike’s former girlfriend – the one who got away.
The pair joins the recently announced Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, and Charles Melton as a modern, highly specialized police unit that collides with the old school Bad Boys (Smith and Lawrence) when a new threat emerges in Miami.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah direct the film which goes into production next month in preparation for a January 17th 2020 release.
