Will Smith unsure if he will return for Men in Black 4
While it is regrettable that After Earth has not done better at the box office, Sony Pictures is indeed interested in another franchise sequel Will Smith has helped make very popular; Men in Black. It seems that the studio has given the green light to Oren Uziel penning the script to Men in Black 4, there’s only one problem; Agent J A.K.A. Will Smith, may not be on board.
While on the red carpet for the After Earth premier, the would-be Alien investigator and protector of Earth said this to Collider, “I think three is enough for me. Three of anything is enough for me. We’ll look at it and we’ll consider it, but it feels like it might be time to let someone else do it.”
The question really is one that will obviously answer itself in time as nothing else really has come from the Smith camp at this point, but speaking as a fan, I would love to see Will Smith reprise his role as Agent J. Whether or not the super star actor wants to go down the road again is another story entirely and I suppose I can understand the need to grow into new roles, but hey; if the script is good enough, at least we know Will will consider it right.
So the point to take from this article and Collider Smith quote would I guess be for the script writer Oren Uziel; make it a good one my friend!
