Bad Boys for Life is officially happening with Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, but will it include Gabrielle Union? The actress reacted to Smith and Lawrence's social media post yesterday with the use of the eyeball emojis and a telephone, which loosely translates to: "Call Me." Union played Lawrence's younger sister, Sydney Burnett, in Bad Boys 2 and was also Smith's love interest in the movie. Union's response to the long-awaited sequel comes after NBC canceled her Bad Boys TV spin-off with Jessica Alba, titled LA's Finest, over a ballooning budget. Charter and producers Sony Pictures Television announced that the drama, originally developed and passed over at NBC, has been picked up to series with a 13-episode order for a 2019 premiere on Spectrum's platform.

Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union continue production on their new series L.A.'s Finest, and while the actresses had some downtime, they danced to their new favorite song.

Union, 46, shared a new video on Instagram, featuring the actress and her co-star dancing on the downtown Los Angeles/Boyle Heights set, where she and Alba are both dancing to the new song Lil Bebe Remix by Dani Leigh.

The actresses had some help, since their makeup artist just happened to be a former dancer for Janet Jackson.

Bad Boys 3 has been in development for what seems like forever, but serious talks only started in 2009. In the nine years since it was revealed that the movie was going to happen, a revolving door of writers and directors have been attached at one time or another. We've been close a few times, but now Bad Boys 3 is officially happening, and fans are super excited, including Gabrielle Union. After seeing her reaction online, fans started to echo her sentiment, with one social media user stating, "Ain't nothing official without Gabby"

For now, it's unclear if Gabrielle Union will be involved in Bad Boys 3, but we should find out soon. If all goes well, the sequel should start filming in and around the Atlanta area early next year. Will Smith has been attached to the project for over a year, but it was beginning to look like Martin Lawrence was getting sick of waiting around to see if the production was actually going to begin. However, he's all in now, as seen in the actors' excited social media posts.
