One of the most successful comedy franchises of all time may be making a comeback. Columbia Pictures has hired Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen to write the next Men in Black movie, and veteran MIB director Barry Sonnenfeld is reportedly attached to the project, which could start production as soon as the spring of 2010. The film isn't a sure thing yet. The studio probably won't greenlight the picture unless Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones sign on. At the moment, Smith is said to be interested but not yet committed to reprising his role, although he does not currently have a film project lined up, while Jones' involvement is uncertain.
