When a movie can gross $625 million internationally and be largely forgotten, it must have been a hell of a summer. Last year, Sony released the third film in their hit Men in Black franchise, MIB 3. The Will Smith/Tommy Lee Jones/Josh Brolin sci-fi comedy was generally well-liked and did well for the studio, but thanks to films like The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, very few people have gone on to discuss it since.
They’ve been discussing it at Sony, though, and today it was revealed the studio has hired a writer to pen the fourth film.

This movie has everything but Cowboys and superheroes.
It looks like Sony Pictures will actually be making this movie, and who is going to direct this madness? Jonah Hill?!
