Men In Black 4 gets a release date… Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones unlikely to return

October 1st, 2017 by Marc Comments

The Men in Black are coming back!

Yes, remember the Men in Black meets 21 Jump Street movie that was all the talk last year (here)? Yeah, well that’s not happening.

We will be getting a Men in Black spinoff on May 17th, 2019 (the same date as John Wick Chapter 3) and it will be penned by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum who wrote the first Iron Man and, em, Transformers: The Last Knight.

The spinoff will “build on the world from the first three Men in Black films and expand the universe to a global scale with new characters and new villains. The idea is something along the lines of how Jurassic World rebooted and sequelized the Jurassic Parkfranchise at the same time, and just as with that film, original stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are not expected to return.”

Producer Walter F. Parkes said: “It’s so rare to get to the end of the script and know you’re holding a movie in your hands – but Art and Matt have written a spinoff that somehow is true to the core of the MIB world, and yet expands the franchise to a fresh new place.”

So there you go. No Jump Street crossover and no Smith and Jones.

Can they deliver a Men in Black worth watching? We’ll just have to wait until May 2019.

What do you all think? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
