What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Sure. Fine. Whatever.

So There’s Going To Be A Men In Black 4

I almost used this picture for the top pic. Because really, people. 

Let me just say for the record, Men in Black 3 took in $624,026,776 worldwide but I don’t know anyone who saw it. Moving on.

The Hollywood Reporter says Sony has just hired a writer for Men in Black 4Oren Uziel has the opportunity to write the first draft as well as the task of working on the sequel to 21 Jump Street which takes priority.

Men in Black 4 is in the early stages of development, and it is unclear to what extent franchise star Will Smith is involved at this point,” writes THR. “There are no deals for Josh Brolin or Emma Thompson to return, and the movie series is expensive to make for the studio because of backend participation deals with such players as Smith, director Barry Sonnenfeld and executive producer Steven Spielberg.”

I can’t be the only one surprised they’re going for a fourth installment, right?

    MIB 3 was very good, actually. I’m not sure how they could pull off a MIB 4 tho.

  • Stephen Darryl Suggs

    MIB3 was alright, it lacked a certain something the first two had.

    I just want to know why they decided to kill Zed.

    I honestly liked MIB 3 and I thought it was a good way to end the franchise on a high note after how badly the second movie sucked.

  • Kate Lorimer

    Simple. New partner. Wo-men in black. They did it for 5 seconds in the first film….

    I will direct you to the legal troubles section of Rip Torn’s wikipedia entry.

    When a movie makes that much money a sequel is inevitable.

  • Mark Brown

    And in the animated series.

    C’mon studios, let Agent Elle get a chance in the limelight.

  • Jessie S. Galindo

    I’ve known about this for a while now. I’m just hoping it will be new agents and Agent J is the new boss or something.

  • Nuuni Nuunani

    As someone who really enjoyed men in black 3 far more than the previous two titles, I can totally see it happening. ^^

  • Magic Xylophone

    The previous TWO? You liked it more than MIB? Inconceivable.

  • Magic Xylophone

    I want to know why the hell there wasn’t a 1960s Zed. He was a founding member!

  • Trevor Patrick

    If there is a fourth movie and it involves the original crew, they need to do something other than J explores his relationship with K. for some reason that was the basis of all three movies, even though it made less sense with each one. In the third movie for example, it would have been better if J’s partner/sidekick was his own father, rather than young K.

  • Chris L.

    Wow…I wouldn’t want him in my movie either! As a rule, I don’t usually look into celebrities personal lives unless I’m a huge, HUGE fan. Ignorance is bliss.

  • Anonymous

    Yeah that’s why he got killed off of 30 Rock as well…

  • Laura Truxillo

    We could totally pretend that MiB 2 never happened and make this the third one.

    Honestly, MiB 3 was a really good, enjoyable film. (And was it just me, or was it shot through a slash filter like WOAH.)

  • Laura Truxillo

    Can we bring Agent X in too? Heck, just make the fourth movie about them!

  • Brian

    I liked MiB3. I wouldn’t mind if they just decide to get together and make one every 5 or 10 years, as long as the scripts are good.

  • Piper Newton

    Wasn’t expecting this! Though if it’s at least as good as 3, I’ll be satisfied. MIB3 was an interesting take on the subject of time travel wrapped up in a genuinely amusing package, IMO.

  • Nuuni Nuunani

    Bugs really creep me out and I wasnt as wowed by Will Smith’s acting in the first film ^^;
    As for the second one it was alright but it felt more like ‘this is a sequel to what happend last time’ than a stand alone movie which kinda made it shadowed by the original in my mind. ^^;

  • Kalynn Osburn

    I was actually pleasantly surprised with Men in Black 3

  • Anonymous

    Because they said we demanded it…

  • Shawn Cooke

    I really, really enjoyed MiB 3. It was the Highlander 3 of the series, decent on its own merits but really, really good compared to number 2.

    Of course, based on that analogy, MiB 4 will be the Highlander 4….

  • Anonymous

    MiB3 wasn’t as good as 1, was much better than 2, but managed to pull off some bookend-stuff that made it feel like a natural closing point for the series. (it did it in such a way that it undermined a bunch of good stuff from the first one, tho, in order to shoe-horn in the whole ‘actually a trilogy’ feeling)
    Bottom line? I enjoyed 3, but unless they really tighten it up, I don’t see myself enjoying 4.

    I’d watch the hell out of that movie.

  • Michelle Faw

    MiB 3 was fantastic. I loved it.
