Smith mulls movie roles of magician, MIBWill Smith has a choice to make. Variety reports that he could either reprise his role as Agent Jay in “Men in Black 3,” OR … he could take on the role of a magician separated from his daughter in “The City That Sailed.”

According to the report, the 20th Century Fox movie tells the story of a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his daughter. The girl, after moving to London, finds magic, wish-granting candles. Soon after she discovers their power, New York starts floating toward Britain.

The MIB franchise made millions, so the allure of that might be pretty strong. Cinema Blend reports that Josh Brolin, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jermaine Clement might be involved. But Smith’s Overbrook company developed “City” and brought it to Fox. Variety reports that “insiders” say Smith will have a decision soon.
