ShoWest: Sony Confirms Men in Black 3 and Ghostbusters 3

Over the last year or so, we've heard rumblings on numerous exciting projects in works within Sony. Back in September we reported that another Men in Black was in development, although it was too early on for any details, and it wasn't official. Additionally, we've written countless times about the Ghostbusters reboot that is already in the works, with Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky writing. During Sony's presentation today at ShoWest, Sony president of worldwide distribution, Rory Bruer, mentioned that not only is Spider-Man 4 in the works for 2011, but so are a new Men in Black and a new Ghostbusters.
Bruer mentioned both of these projects somewhat in passing, right after talking about their exciting upcoming summer slate and mentioning that they had some other great movies in the works. He didn't even mention anything but the names, Men in Black and Ghostbusters, but that's enough to confirm that these are official. While we knew that Ghostbusters would be happening, given they already hired writers, the Men in Black rumor was essentially only a rumor until now. Although most people don't want to see either, I'm honestly excited for another Ghostbusters, for many reasons, but not necessarily for Men in Black.
