Variety says Will Smith is looking at two possible options for his next project - Sony's Men in Black 3 (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=54148) and 20th Century Fox's The City That Sailed (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=56999).

The first film in the "Men (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/#) in Black" franchise earned $587.8 million worldwide in 1997, and the second took in $441.8 million in 2002.

Smith's production company Overbrook Films developed The City That Sailed (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=56999) and brought it to Fox.

The fantastical drama follows a New York City street magician whose daughter, because of family (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/#) circumstances, lives in England. In exploring a lighthouse one day, the girl discovers a room with magic candles and wishes to be reunited with her father, causing the island of Manhattan to break away and drift across the Pond. Andrew Niccol wrote the script.

I think he will do 'Men in Black' as I may be wrong but it seems like he's not had a big 'hit' movie in a while

If he doesn't choose Men In Black, I will have lost all respect for him.

MIB3 is the way forward.

The second film looks like it will only appeal to 12 year girls etc and thats not Smiths style for films! He's to good for stupid flicks like that.. *cough Wild Wild West cough*

YEA!!
But Smith has to choose MIB3.... i don't think it'd be the same if he didn't do it.
I bet he will though, there's no way he wont

Ooooo, tough call on that one. Just from reading the basic plot of The City That Sailed, it has a The Pursuit of Happiness feel to it. And with Will Smith in it, I would say it would do fairly well. But MIB3 HAS to have him AND Tommy Lee Jones both in it or it just wouldn't be the same.

Plus according to the links in the OP, he's already signed to do The City that Sailed, but there's no mention of confirmation for MIB3. Which means either he's made a choice or he's doing both. Only time will tell methinks.

why is that, the movie was ok at best. And the best part was the bug guy, and the lady with the edgar suit line.

M.I.B. 2 wasn't that good, if they're going to make a third part its going to have to be worth watching and I doubt that is going to happen, Smith should just go with "City That Sailed" at least he might or get a Oscar or something; I'm just waiting for Bad Boys III.

I keep hearing how awesome the Bad Boys movies are, but I've never seen either of them. I'm only recently getting back into action films, since they sucked really hard for a while. I've really got to get on that.

How about neither, unless tommy lee jones is back too Mib3 would suck.

I've got no idea what this other movie is about, but I say go with that if there's a chance MIB3 will suck as hard as MIB2.

Man this guy Will Smith is lined up for so many movies, it isn't even funny. Independence Day 2 and maybe 3, maybe MIB 3 or the The City that Sailed, I Robot 2, Hancock 2 and others, but I forgot haha!! That boy is living pretty.

If Tommy Lee Jones will be in Men in Black 3, then I hope Will signs onto it.

If Tommy Lee won't be in it, I'd like him to go to that other project.
It really sounds interesting.
