The High School Musical star also has an unknown part in the long-awaited third installment 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.’

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.
