Sony also announced a fall 2019 release date for Tom Hanks' 'You Are My Friend.'

The Bad Boys threequel, reuniting Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, has a release date.

Sony on Wednesday announced that Bad Boys for Life is set to hit theaters Jan. 17, 2020, the beginning of the lucrative Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing the third chapter in the buddy-cop film series. The first two pics, released in 1995 and 2003, took in a collective $414.7 million worldwide, not adjusted for inflation.

Sony also announced a release date for TriStar's You Are My Friend, which is inspired by the real-life friendship between Fred Rogers — aka Mister Rogers of TV's Mister Rogers' Neighborhood — and award-winning journalist Tom Junod. The movie is set to open Dec. 18, 2019, the heart of awards season.

Tom Hanks is attached to star as Rogers, with Marielle Heller set to direct from a screenplay by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster. (TriStar stresses that it isn't a Mister Rogers biopic.)
