TMZ caught wind of news that Will Smith and Jerry Bruckheimer—the producer behind the Bad Boys franchise—have inked a deal to put the franchise's trilogy into motion.

Sources told TMZ that Smith and Bruckheimer spent four hours at dinner Tuesday night and met up again for a long lunch Wednesday to hatch out the details. They've also reportedly been working on a script.

It's probably safe to say that fans would flock to the theaters to see Smith and Martin Lawrence together again.
