ATLANTA — Over the weekend, we learned that directors for the upcoming film “Bad Boys For Life” starring Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are back in town.

Now we have discovered casting producers are quickly filling those last-minute scenes.

Catrett Locke Casting is currently looking for Hispanic males to be a part of a scene that needs a crew of villains!

They are seeking actors who look tough and intimidating. Filming goes down on Tuesday and this is a night shoot.

The plot for this new installment is “Ride Together, Die Together” and follows the Miami PD and its elite AMMO team’s attempt to take down the head of a drug cartel.

A cold-blooded killer with a vicious, taunting nature is committed to the work of the cartel and is dispatched by his mother to kill Mike (Smith).

The new film also stars Joe Pantoliano, Alexander Ludwig, Vanessa Hudgens, Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio and Paola Nuñez.

"Bad Boys for Life” was directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah who are best known for directing episodes of FX’s Snowfall.
