Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi on directing Bad Boys: Ride or Die

Directing duo Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi return to the movie's helm after directing the action comedy Bad Boys for Life (2020) and notching the franchise’s best reviews from critics and audiences alike. Ahead of the movie's theatrical release, the duo recently gushed about directing the Bad Boys franchise movies.

“When we were 19 and studying in Brussels in film school, we were always dreaming of one day being part of Hollywood, and we were always joking that if one day we would be getting the chance to go to Hollywood, we’d want to make a Bad Boys movie—a Bad Boys 3,” Bilall laughs. “But obviously, we never really believed that it would happen up until we got to ask Jerry and Will. And we’re still pinching ourselves. We are fanboys, so it’s still a very surreal feeling.”
