Men In Black is one of Hollywood’s most loved sci-fi franchise with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in lead roles.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones’ sci-fi flick, Men In Black, is getting a reboot. Producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have revealed that a revival of the hit franchise is in development at Sony Pictures, but without original star Will Smith.

According to the producing duo, the plan is to make a reinvented Men in Black trilogy, reported Ace Showbiz.

When asked about the possibility of reviving the franchise, Parkes said, “We’re in the middle of it. It’s very active.”

A still from the movie. Jones and Smith were alien-hunters in the movie.

He also hinted that Smith was unlikely to be involved in the possible Men in Black revival.

The last film, Men in Black 3, was a commercial success, grossing USD 624 million at worldwide box office when it was released in 2012.

Plans to make Men in Black 4 seemed to be merely rumours as Smith shut it down, saying, “Three of anything is enough for me.”
