Director Barry Sonnenfeld has confirmed that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have both signed on to star in the next Men in Black film simply titled Men in Black 3-D. Because you know…it’s movie number three in the franchise and it will be in 3-D.
Because Sony’s Spider-Man 4 has completely halted production, the studio is in desperate need of a Summer blockbuster for next year and a 3-D MIB with Will Smith will fill in quite nicely.
The first MIB released in 1997 grossed $590 million world-wide and the second one released in 2002 grossed over $400 million. With the added prices of 3D tickets, you can expect some pretty high numbers for Mr. Smith that will hopefully have us all forgetting about Seven Pounds.
