Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer’s first go-movie at Hollywood Pictures, “Bad Boys,” to star Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz, has been delayed, possibly for as long as a year.
There are conflicting reports about why the film is not going as planned on Feb. 16 in Miami under the direction of 28-year-old commercials director Michael Bay.
Sources indicate that the postponement was primarily due to the script not being ready and other extenuating circumstances, including problems with locations.
Carvey–who insiders said is particularly upset about the endless script problems–and Lovitz are pay-or-play on the picture. Disney’s deal with the actors was that the movie would either start in February or, at the latest, January 1994.
