Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], September 30 (ANI): The Men in Black back coming back next summer and how!

Sony Pictures has fast tracked a spinoff of its billion-dollar alien franchise, Men in Black, which has set a release date of May 17, 2019, reports the Deadline.

The untitled film script will be written by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, the duo who penned 'Iron Man' and 'Transformers: The Last Knight.'

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are expected not to reprise their roles as the two secretive agents, who supervise extraterrestrial life forms who live on Earth and hide their existence from ordinary humans.

The new spin off is said to focus on a new set of agents and characters.

The new 'MiB' is being produced by Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald and will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg.

The director's name is not revealed yet. (ANI)
