“Men in Black 3” was a mild box office success domestically, though it earned more than $600 million worldwide. That film starred Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin. Now Sony is pressing ahead with “Men in Black 4” and going all in with writer  Oren Uziel. Uziel wrote the webseries “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth” and is not only writing the new MiB but also rewriting “21 Jump Street 2” starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.
