Director Barry Sonnenfield has confirmed that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are officially on board for the third installment of the Men In Black trilogy, which is about a secret agency that monitors extraterrestrial life on Earth. The first film, released in 1997, is one of the roles responsible for catapulting Will Smith to fame. In the MIB films, Smith plays Agent J, another member of the Men In Black who has given up connection with the outside world in order to join the agency.
It was unknown whether Tommy Lee Jones would return and it was speculated that he would be replaced at one point. MIB 3 is currently set for a May 30, 2011 release date and little plot details are known.
