Men in Black first appeared in movie theatres in 1997. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones helped to save the world from aliens. It became an international cult classic and quickly developed a passionate fan base. So it’s no surprise that fans are let down that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not appear in the spin-off movie planned for 2019.
The original Men in Black movie was quite popular, grossing a phenomenal $589 million worldwide. Both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones were perfect in the first movie and the rest of the trilogy that followed. The comedic actors had great chemistry on screen and you could count on one great laugh after another!
Sony Pictures has given the official “green light” to the Men in Black spin-off movie. It does not have a title yet and has a release date of 2019.
While the original stars will not appear in the film, the storyline will have everything that is familiar to Men in Black fans except for them. The entire universe the tales take place in exactly the same world we’ve come to know and love.
Fans may wonder what actors can come into such an exciting and humorous story such as Men in Black?
Tommy Lee Jones played a serious-minded, federal agent who was dedicated to protecting us from aliens. Will Smith’s character was brand new to working for the same government agency. For now, we can only guess who will enter the entertaining world we’ve come to know as Men in Black.
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have not given a comment regarding why they will not be in the new movie. We are uncertain if the 2019 Men in Black movie has simply been planned with brand new characters to continue to story.
Fans will be excited to see the new 2019 movie with a fresh, original take on the Men in Black storyline. All three movies in the Men in Black trilogy have taken place in America.
The 2019 spin-off has a global view and is expected to show us different parts of the world, not simply America battling outer space invasion.
