1. Bad Boys For Life

When: January 22, 2020

Whether it's a jaded school teacher, a tired duchess, or a kick ass weapons specialist, it seems Vanessa Hudgens has grown into an actress with the knack for playing strong, independent women. Perhaps she embodies these qualities most in her latest action comedy Bad Boys For Life, the third installment to Will Smith and Martin Lawrence's iconic buddy cop team-up. Joining the franchise as a young cop named Kelly, Vanessa describes her character as "a strong, powerful, and badass woman–something I feel I can definitely relate to," she tells Preview. It's a fearless female role that she hopes to see more of, not just for herself, but as something that should soon become a dominant Hollywood movie role staple as well. "I think as an industry we need to continue making strong roles for females, both in front of the camera and behind the camera."

Set 25 years after the original film, Bad Boys for Life finds Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett on their final team-up to take down the leader of a drug cartel in Miami. Set in their old ways, they must learn to work with and adapt to the new rule book of AMMO, a tech-driven team of young cops that includes Vanessa's character.

Joining Will, Martin, and Vanessa in the ensemble cast are Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Nuñez, and music producer DJ Khaled.

Aside from Bad Boys, 2020's looking busy for Vanessa. Moving forward, the actress is gearing up to shoot the movie adaptation of the award winning American musical, Tick, Tick...Boom, alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda. "I am so ecstatic to be working alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda and my fellow cast members. My next Netflix film, The Princess Switch: Switched Again will also be released later this year!" she tells Preview.
