Three 'Men in Blacks' May Be Enough for Will Smith

Men in Black 3

After starring in three Men in Black movies, Will Smith may be ready to let someone else save the world from dangerous alien criminals in Men in Black 4. Here's what he told Collider (via The Playlist).

"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 that it might be time to let someone else do that," Smith said.

He's probably sincere in that sentiment, and while he's willing to walk away, a big check from Sony would make him want to "look at it" and to "consider it." In other words, count on Smith returning unless Sony is not willing to pay him his asking price.

Despite production delays which caused the budget to balloon to a reported $225 million, Men in Black 3 made over $624 million at the box office, so the franchise still has a lot of life left in it. Would it have fared as well without Smith? We may find out when it's time to talk contracts for MIB 4.

Oren Uziel will write the script for the next MIB installment after he's done with 21 Jump Street 2.

In the same interview, Smith revealed that he had written other stories, but After Earth is the first one that was produced. A 12% on Rotten Tomatoes and a $27.5 million weekend debut for a movie that cost $130 million to make? Smith may want to stick to acting.
