Will Smith in Men in Black
Now that Columbia Pictures has green-lit 'Men in Black 3' -- the first new installment in the sci-fi comedy franchise since 2002 -- the question is whether Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will be lured into a reprise of their roles as Agents J and K.

What is known is Barry Sonnenfeld, who helmed the first two 'MIB' flicks back in 1997 and 2002, is attached to the director's chair for a third time. It's a comfortable seat, given the combined global grosses of the 'MIB' brand have already topped $1 billion.

Variety and the Hollywood Reporter also announced today that 'Madagascar' and 'Tropic Thunder' scribe Etan Cohen -- already sleuthing through a 'Sherlock Holmes' screenplay project for Sasha Baron Cohen and Will Farrell -- is rushing to complete a draft of an 'MIB 3' script.
