Sony hired screenwriter Oren Uziel to pen a draft for the fourth offering from the franchise, capitalizing on the success of "Men in Black 3," the entertainment industry publication reported Friday.
"MiB3" grossed $624 million, the most of the three "Men in Black" films.
Uziel will tackle the script after reworking a draft for a sequel to "21 Jump Street," The Hollywood Reporter said.
The initial draft was written by actor Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall. The sequel will see the undercover cops in a college setting rather than the high school setting of the first film.
