Cheeky film star WILL SMITH is set to blast into the same orbit as big earners like BRUCE WILLIS - after signing up for the MEN IN BLACK (1997) sequel.
The former PRINCE OF BEL-AIR TV star is set to earn $20 million (£13 million), plus a percentage of the gross takings, for reprising his role as AGENT J.
Co-star TOMMY LEE JONES, though, has priced himself out of the movie - after demanding twice as much. (TM/WNTRE/NFA)
