LOS ANGELES, April 21 (UPI) -- U.S. film director Barry Sonnenfeld says Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are set to star in a third installment in the "Men in Black" film franchise.

Sonnenfeld confirmed the development to The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday.

Few plot details are known regarding the upcoming science-fiction comedy, which is expected to open in 3D in May 2011, Empire Online said.

The previous two "MIB" movies -- released in 1997 and 2002 -- featured Smith and Jones as U.S. government agents dealing with space aliens who come to Earth.
