You Choose Will Smith's Next Role!

Looks like Will Smith needs some help deciding which film he should make next, and while he's not exactly asking for fan input, I know the readers of Fandango could probably help push him in the right direction. Does he read this blog? Probably, it's pretty awesome. But on the off chance that he doesn't, let's voice our opinion loud enough so that he can see (and hear) it.

Will Smith

Basically, it comes down to this: Smith is currently trying to decide between two films for his next project. The first is Men in Black III, which we've talked about before. It's a pretty big sequel; Sony is rumored to be bringing on lots of new talent (like Josh Brolin and Sacha Baron Cohen), and, like the first two films, we know it's something that will at the very least entertain us for a couple hours with its alien jokes and creepy special effects.
His second option is a family film called The City That Sailed, about a New York street magician (note: I live in New York, and while there are plenty of street musicians, I've never seen a street magician) who is unhappily separated from a daughter that lives all the way in England. However, that begins to change when his daughter finds magic candles and uses them to make a wish that comes true – making it so the island of Manhattan detaches from the United States and begins floating toward England, this way father and daughter can be with each other at last. Why she didn't just wish for a simple plane ticket is beyond me.
My Choice: Personally – and I usually never go with the sequel over the original film – I think I'm leaning toward Men in Black 3 on this one. The whole detached island family-adventure thing sounds a tad bit weird, though I'm sure there's a lot more to it than that. Plus I live near the island of Manhattan, and going to see a film like that might freak me out a bit.
What do you think? Which film should Will Smith take on next?
