Remember all the talk a while back about a Jump Street/Men In Black crossover (here)? Yeah, we actually got kind of excited for that one, well, it look looks like it’s not going to happen… or at least, not with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.

It seems the Sony are looking at reinventing the Men In Black franchise. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have confirmed that the Men In Black movies are in for a radical reinvention because Smith isn’t likely to return: “Most likely no [Smith won’t be back]. We’re in the middle of it. It’s very active.. It will be reinvented as a trilogy,” they said.

Surely a reboot is a silly idea with Men In Black? If any franchise lends itself to a new cast/same universe approach it’s MiB, no? Still… the same could have been said about Ghostbusters.

Sony strikes again, it seems….

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….
