With Hollywood suffering from sequel fever, it seems like Men In Black 3 would be a no-brainer for Will Smith. But Fox's fantasy film The City That Sailed might make it impossible for Agents J and K to reunite.

Variety is reporting that the only thing getting in the way of Will Smith getting back into Black is the film The City That Sailed, written by Gattaca writer Andrew Niccol. The movie

revolves around a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his young daughter. The girl, who moves to London, finds magic candles that make her wishes comes true, with unintended consequences: The island of Manhattan separates from the continent and floats toward England, bringing her dad ever closer.

And while that sounds pretty exciting, I'd still rather see a Pug in a suit fighting alien crime. As long as it's better than MIBII.

I'd only watch MIB 3 if it's better than 2.

I'm not even that big of a fan of the first one either.

I think the MIB cartoon series was a much better execution of the concept though. Good mix of police procedural drama and mystery and comedy (that wasn't Big Willie style).
