Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back as Detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett in Bad Boys Ride or Die. The lead duo, who are returning for the fourth film in the series, have responded to the idea of ​​doing a crossover with fellow buddy action comedies Beverly Hills Cop and Rush Hour. In an interview with CBR, Smith chose Rush Hour because "Jackie (Chan) is my friend." Smith produced the reboot of The Karate Kid (2010) starring Jackie Chan, so the two have already teamed up. 

Lawrence agreed with Smith's answer, saying, "Jackie, that's it." Smith responded, "We have to work with Jackie. That would be amazing. It would be great because we could expand internationally. A crossover with 'Rush Hour' would be genius," and they seem to be quite enthusiastic about the idea. Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah also seem to be positive about the idea of ​​'Rush Hour joining the fray. Albi commented, "You could have the Bruckheimerverse with Axel Foley (the protagonist of 'Beverly Hills Cop') and Mike and Marcus, but you have to add Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan (the main duo of 'Rush Hour') to it." They called it the "Bruckheimerverse" because hitmaker Jerry Bruckheimer produced 'Bad Boys' and the 'Beverly Hills Cop' series.

Tiffany Haddish, who will be making her first appearance in the series with "Ride or Die," immediately chose "Beverly Hills Cop." In response to the interviewer's mention of the Bruckheimerverse, she replied, "It has to be done inside." Incidentally, Bruckheimer himself responded favorably to the possibility of a crossover with both series, saying, "I don't know what will happen. It would be nice." Will a crossover with "Beverly Hills Cop" or "Rush Hour" actually happen? First, enjoy "Bad Boys Ride or Die," which will be released in Japan on Friday, June 21, 2024.

The movie "Bad Boys Ride or Die" will be released in theaters nationwide on Friday, June 21, 2024.
