Men in Black 3 director Barry Sonnenfeld is attached to direct an adaptation of the DC Comics title The Metal Men.

The story centers on William Magnus, an artificial intelligence expert who creates six different cyborgs, each made of a different metal on the periodic table. Gold is the leader and can stretch his form in an infinite number of ways. Iron is the muscle of the group, and Lead protects the group from radiation. Mercury can melt and slide into the tiniest of spaces, Platinum, the only female, could stretch or flatten her form, and Tin is the insecure cyborg.

The project doesn't have a screenwriter attached yet, and is still in the very early stages of development. It isn't known if this will be the next project that Barry Sonnenfeld shoots.
