- Base this on a comic like "Men in Black" that's abbreviated differently.
- Make it about dead people, but feel free to still make the dead people look ENTIRELY MIB-ish ALIEN.
- Cast a DIFFERENT weathered actor playing entirely to type.
- Instead of giving said weathered actor a brash, sassy foil, cast a partner whose only clearly-defined trait is that he used to have a really cool police car.
- Still have them carry big MIB type shiny guns, OBVIOUSLY.
- Add a Supermodel to disguise the otherwise MIB formula.
