Director Barry Sonnenfeld has revealed that a third Men in Black film (in 3D) will be released and both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will reprise their roles. The news comes courtesy Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411:
Director Barry Sonnenfeld tells me that “Men in Black 3-D” is ready to roll. Will Smith has signed on, Tommy Lee Jones is in, and a script is awaited.
Yes. I did say 3D. “Men in Black 3″ will be in 3D. Sonnenfeld says it is so. Why not? Everything else is, and this is one movie that might be cool in the process.
With Spider-Man 4 being scrapped in favor of the 3D Spider-Man: Begin Again (working title), Sony could push to get Men in Black 3D ready for release by Memorial Day May 2011.
