South African director Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) has signed on to helm Battle: Los Angeles, a sci-fi flick about aliens invading downtown L.A. and the platoon of Marines that fight them. The film is described as Independence Day meets Black Hawk Down. Excited?
Series stars Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are reportedly game for a third outing of the popular alien cop franchise according to series producer Walter Parkes. Al that’s needed now is an opening in the actors’ schedules as Smith is busy with a gazillion projects including The Last Pharaoh and an I Am Legend prequel while Jones is hard at work shooting Islands In The Stream, his second movie as a director. That and there’s no script yet. Anyway, Men In Black III (MIIIB?), are you interested?
