The Men in Black are back again.  There’s a spinoff in the works that’s apparently being ‘fast-tracked’ at Sony Pictures.  This, according to Deadline.  Though we’re not likely to see Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return to their roles, the film exists in and ‘builds on the world they inhabited.’

The idea is not a new one; let’s relaunch the franchise and make the threat of the original world a bigger, more global one.  The script has been written by  Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, who also penned Iron Man and Transformers: The Last Knight.  The two have written a spinoff in MiB‘s alien laden world ‘focusing on new characters chasing villains that put the picture on more of a global scale than the two previous films.’

There’s been no title or director announced, but producer Walter F. Parkes has expressed some excitement about the project saying, “It’s so rare to get to the end of the script and know you’re holding a movie in your hands, but Art and Matt have written a spinoff that somehow is true to the core of the MiB world and yet expands the franchise to a fresh new place.”

The new Men in Black film is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019.
