Columbia has started development on a third installment of its Men in Black film franchise, Variety columnist Michael Fleming reported. Director Barry Sonnenfeld is returning to develop a sequel idea pitched to him by star Will Smith with Tommy Lee Jones.

But producer Walter Parkes and Sonnenfeld don't get along, Fleming reported. Sonnenfeld dropped out of Lemony Snicket when Paramount invited DreamWorks to partner. Smith and Jones won't do the film without Sonnenfeld, so Sony's plan is to let the director run with Smith's concept. Parkes would take a back seat, Fleming reported.
