According to producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, Men In Black is headed back to the big screen - but without its biggest star.

“We're in the middle of it. It's very active,” Parkes told The Hollywood Reporter regarding the blockbuster franchise’s future. However, regarding Will Smith's involvement with future Men In Black films, Parkes said "Most likely no," with MacDonald adding "It will be reinvented as a trilogy."

Men In Black began life as a comic book at Malibu, a publisher that was later absorbed by Marvel Comics, though the film and television rights are retained by Amblin Entertainment and Columbia Pictures in perpetuity. The last installment in the series, Men In Black 3, was released in 2012.

What say you, 'Rama readers? Could a Men In Black revival succeed without its biggest name?
