Today's sequel news sort of makes my eyes roll: Men in Black 3 is coming, and Sony is bringing fresh blood to the franchise. The studio has roped in Etan Cohen of Tropic Thunder to write the script — even though neither Will Smith nor Tommy Lee Jones have signed on yet to star.
Not to be cruel, but the second MIB came out seven years ago — isn't Agent K getting kind of old to chase aliens? I liked the first MIB OK (loved that theme song!), but the second didn't grab my excitement, so I'm surprised they've decided to revisit it again. All I've got to say is they better get Smith and Jones to agree stat, because I can't imagine an MIB with all new characters — or even worse, younger actors taking over the roles they originated.
What's your take? Are you happy to see Hollywood move forward with the Men in Black series, or would you rather see it offed already?
