Will Smith unlikely to return for Men In Black 4

"Three is enough for me"

Will Smith has thrown a potential spanner in the works of Sony's fourth Men In Black film, revealing that he intends to leave the third film as his last outing.

We learned a little earlier this year that Sony had put screenwriter Oren Uziel to work on a script for a potential fourth film, but those plans may be derailed by Smith's unwillingness to return.

"I think three is enough for me," said the star. "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."

Not a definite "no" then, but it doesn't sound as though he's in any great hurry to don the suit and shades for a fourth outing.

In which case, will Sony still push on with the series despite losing its star name? Common sense would suggest not, but with the third film grossing a franchise best total of $624 million, don't write it off just yet...

Would you like to see Smith return for another round? Tell us, below!

      The third one was a lot better than the second and worth a watch if you're a fan of the first. I wouldn't mind seeing another Men In Black but without Smith, would Jones return?

      Is it me or is Will Smiths star power becoming ever so dimmer? (Please don't make that into an 'Is it me?' feature)

      Were'n't there supposed to be early script conflicts on the third one that Smith didn't like. Maybe he'd sign on if they had a decent story to tell with something different to the others, like letting the MIB out into the galaxy, maybe transporting a prisoner or something.

      Hadouken - it's not just you I also feel the same about Smith and actors from that generation (Cruise, Pitt etc) the problem is Will thinks he can coast by on his smile and charisma forever, he needs to push himself and accept challenging roles. Tarantino gave Smith a golden opportunity to re-ignite his career but Will's ego took control once he saw the large role Waltz had.

      Yeah I agree, but at least Pitt isn't above doing the odd indie movie like Moneyball or Killing them softly. But yeah Smiths problem is he doesn't want to do character pieces but blockbusters, and turning down Tarantino is a career ender.
