Who's ready to get back in black?
Sony Pictures has fast tracked a Men In Black spinoff for release on May 17th, 2019.
Matt Holloway and Art Marcum are penning the script.
While Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are not expected to star, the new film will acknowledge and build on the same world they inhabit. Holloway and Marcum scripted a contemporary sci-fi pic about the secret black clad force that protects earth from the alien scum of the universe, focusing on new characters chasing villains that put the picture on more of a global scale than the two previous films. The ambition is akin to the way that Jurassic World rebooted and expanded the Jurassic Park franchise following a fourteen year hiatus.
The new film will be produced by Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The trio are actively involved right now in meeting with top directors. They are expected to land one quickly.
And for those wondering, this new spinoff has nothing to do with the Men In Black/21 Jump Street mash-up film - although that idea is still currently in development.
