Fans of the 1997 hit Men in Black can rejoice as it’s been recently announced Sony will be officially bringing back the franchise. According to Deadline, Sony will be producing a spinoff slated for a May 19, 2019 release date.
So far the untitled film will be written by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum who penned Iron Man and Transformers: The Last Knight. However, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are reportedly not expected to reprise their roles as the titular men in black, instead the film will focus on a new set of agents and characters. The unnamed movie does not have a director, but it will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg.
The new Men in Black spinoff is not the previously mentioned crossover between 21 Jump Street, which may see Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill donning Smith and Jones’ suits.
