We have yet to see Men In Black III, but like every Hollywood franchise these days, people are already talking about the next installment!
While talking about where the idea for the current sequel came from, director Barry Sonnenfeld told sources that he wants Will Smith's son Jaden to take over for his pop if there's a sequel!
Stop groaning though because we're pretty sure he's just kidding! Here's what he said when talking about the possibility of Men In Back IIII:
"Will's kind of really smart, but as I said, kind of really annoying, too much energy. When he would get too rambunctious, I would tell him that for Men in Black 4, Will is out and Jaden Smith is in. … If we continue on this path, it won't be released until 2032 but it will be damn good. It all goes into the same pot; it doesn't matter which Smith brings it in. So I am sure he will be fine with it."
Since Will is all about encouraging his children's creative aspirations, we would think so, but he actually wants to remain the face of his favorite science fiction franchise. The actor proceeded to joke:
"Jaden is already 13 years old, so he’s at that mythological boys age, you know – it’s time for his bro-mitzvah. So he’s right at that place … He’s ready to test me so he can’t come anywhere near my movies right now!"
Ha! That's okay. If Hollywood really does decide to make another sequel in 2032, we have no doubt that producers will come knocking Jaden Smith's door!
