While presenting the Sony line-up at ShoWest, Sony President of Worldwide Distribution Rory Bruer hinted to CS' Edward Douglas that they're planning a third installment in their Men in Black franchise. While talking about District 9 as well as dropping brief information for their future sequels Spider-Man 4 and Ghostbusters 3, the executive announced that they're also planning to jump into the MIB franchise one more time.
No other information was given and no word whether Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will be back to reprise their roles for this next sequel. For now, it's just in the planning stages.
The original film hit theaters July 2, 1997 with a $51.0 opening weekend. It would go on to gross $589.3 million worldwide. Their sequel, released in 2002, went on to gross $441.8 million worldwide.
