    Re: Be

    This is future tense. So, as a statement:
    I will be getting more in next week.
    He will be getting more in next week.
    You will be getting more information when it comes to hand.


    As a question:
    Will you be getting more in next week?

    or could phrase it:
    Are you getting any more in?

    Just to add a wee bit, modal verbs always take the first form/the infinitive/the dictionary form.

    She might be/He may be/They should be/thou shalt be/We would be/I could be/She can be
