MIB helped further the career of the soon to be 2 time Oscar nominee. Smith reprised his role along with Tommy Lee Jones in the 2002 and 2012 sequels. Even a animated series was made from the franchise.
There has been plenty of rumors going around that this new trilogy may crossover with the 21 Jump Street franchise. For now nothing has been officially confirmed. There isn’t even any word if Tommy Lee Jones will return as Agent K.
