A poster for the original "Men In Black." It's uncertain if either Jones or Smith will return for the third movie.

(Newser) – The Men in Black are back … at least, Sony hopes they will be. The studio is moving forward with a third installment in the franchise and has tapped Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen for the script. Barry Sonnenfeld is willing to return to the director’s chair, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter, but the men themselves, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, are MIA. Neither has committed to the project, though Smith reportedly has come around to the idea. (Read more Will Smith stories.)
