After several months of speculation, both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have signed on to another Men In Black film. Returning director Barry Sonnenfeld confirmed the casting news. There's no word on any other returnng cast members or plot information, but it was revealed that the film is planned for a Memorial Day, 2011 release. Oh, and of course the film will be in 3-D just as any other major blockbuster these days.
This seems like an odd choice for Will Smith to return to this series at this point, especially since so much time has passed after the second film. He's arguably the biggest, most successful actor in Hollywood who has his choice of any high-profile project he wants. I'm sure he could easily sign on to an equally mainstream film and do his usual in it intead. I guess brand awareness wins again, though.
