Vanessa Hudgens loved being in the company of "wonderful" Will Smith and Martin Lawrence on the set of 'Bad Boys For Life'

Vanessa Hudgens says it was "wonderful" working with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence on 'Bad Boys For Life'.

The pair are back as their respective alter egos Detectives Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett, whom they first portrayed in 1995 film 'Bad Boys' and 2003 sequel 'Bad Boys II', and the 'High School Musical' actress also has an unknown part in the long-awaited third instalment of the popular cop comedy.

Speaking about working on the hotly-anticipated flick, Vanessa said: "I love being submerged into worlds that I, Vanessa, don't live in.

"With this job I get to time travel, and go to different places and live different lives, and that's what excites me: to sink my teeth into the humanity of us all, and try to connect with everything that we go through."

On her co-stars, the 30-year-old star added to Wonderland magazine: "Will [Smith] and Martin [Lawrence] are so, so sweet, they're so wonderful to work with.

"It didn't feel intimidating at all."

Despite enjoying her time travelling and being on set, Vanessa admitted she feels most at home on stage.

She said: "I feel the most fulfilled when I get to tell a story on a stage."

Vanessa is joined by an all-star cast, which also includes DJ Khaled, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio, and Paola Nunez.

Scipio is set to portray the head of a drug cartel, Armando Armas, who is on a mission to take down Lowry.

Nunez is the Miami Police Department's elite AMMO team's newly recruited head, criminal psychologist Rite, who is also a former love interest of Lowry.

A description of the synopsis reads: "The new instalment centres on the Miami PD and its elite AMMO team's attempt to take down Armando Armas (Scipio), head of a drug cartel.

"Armando is a cold-blooded killer with a vicious, taunting nature.

"He is committed to the work of the cartel and is dispatched by his mother to kill Mike (Smith). (Paola) Nunez will take on the role of Rite, the tough and funny criminal psychologist who is the newly appointed head of AMMO and Mike's former girlfriend – and the one who got away."

'Bad Boys For Life' is slated for release in 2020.

Mike (Smith) and Marcus (Lawrence) are back, tracking down a mysterious assassin with the help of younger colleagues. The best film in the franchise so far, it’s full of the expected action but also develops the relationship between the leads. Great fun, and the most purely entertaining movie Smith has made in a while.
