Men in Black
Producers Walter Parkes and Laurie Macdonald confirmed that a Men in Black reboot trilogy is in the works. Will Smith will most likely not return to the series. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller discussed with MTV that a crossover with the 21 Jump Street franchise is a possibility. The franchise will be produced by Sony Pictures.
In November 2015, co-producer Walter Parkes updated the status on the trilogy: “We are quite early on in it. We looked at the first three in retrospect as a bit of a trilogy. We tried to tell a story about those two characters and that relationship. It sounds silly because it’s a fun, science fiction comedy but when you work on these things, you try to find some thematic basis underneath it.” Parkes added “there will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth movie.”
