Men In Black 3

Recommended Posts

On the latter half of that timeline, he mentioned in passing the previously announced Spider-Man 4 from Sam Raimi and the long-rumored Ghostbusters 3, but the biggest surprise was that Sony plans to go back to the well and make a third "Men in Black" movie as well.

This was the first announcement that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones might be back together again, although no further details were given in terms of how far along they are in development, whether there's a script in the works or whether indeed, it will be joining Spider-Man 4 in Sony's summer of 2011.

Sony's milking those sequels, aren't they? If they were serious about the creative direction of MIB (or Ghostbusters for that matter) they wouldn't have sat on their hands for 7 years. Even if MIB 2 was bad (and it was).

I remember reading right after the release of MiB2 that the studio was VERY unhappy with the film, and wanted to wait until they had a new film that lived up to the first's legacy.

There is no way that this won't suck, I'm sorry. Will Smith is a SERIOUS actor now, and Tommy Lee Jones seems to have fallen into the Burt Reynolds trap of pathologically not making the right career decision.

Meh. you could make another one but the original guys shouldn't do it. Get Ice Cube and Woody Harrelson, they'd be awesome.

He can still be funny, though. And shouldn't Agent J be more serious now anyway?

See, J being so utterly hilarious was what made MIB so great. Him playing the veteran to Tommy Lee Jones didn't work at all.

But MiB2 was just a badly-made movie anyway, so who's to say that the concept itself can't work? Maybe it could be a Space Alien Buddy Cop film. They could advertise it as "Starsky and Hutch in Space!"

Sorry; I sometimes forget that sarcasm doesn't come across well on the internet. :P

Columbia Pictures has hired Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen to pen the script for Men in Black 3.

There are no deals yet in place for franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld and stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones to return.

The studio is looking to start filming the third installment in 2010, perhaps as early as the spring.

Sorry, I still love the first one. And I really didn't think the second was as awful as most big time sequels generally are. No interest in a third at this point though.

Yeah, I still like the first one. The second one doesn't exist as far as I'm concerned. It was awful, and it really dampened any chance of me seeing a third movie.

I agree with the first half of this. I'll still see the third one provided that it gets good reviews.

I agree with both halves of this.

I actually didn't mind the sequel. It wasn't a patch on the first one but some of the supporting cast were quite good (Rosario Dawson, Tony Shaoulb), granted Lara FB sucked but I can still watch the second if nothing else was on. The big question is if the second will stop the main cast from doing a 3rd, like Murray and Ghostbusters.

Barry Sonnenfeld has confirmed to Roger Friedman that Will Smith and, after months of speculation, Tommy Lee Jones will star in Men In Black III.

Smith has been on board Sony’s threequel for some time, but Jones’ involvement was less clear, with Josh Brolin mooted as a replacement, while the likes of Sacha Baron Cohen had also been in the casting frame. However, Jones has been concentrating on smaller dramas, like In The Electric Mist and The Company Men, for some time, so the chance to exercise those blockbuster muscles (and pay for a new conservatory) was probably too good to pass up.

At the moment, little is known about the plot of the movie, which Sony will be aiming to get into cinemas by Memorial Day 2011 (that’s May 30, 2011 to the rest of us), but we imagine it’ll involve Agent Jay (Smith) and Kay (Jones) getting in way over their heads with some angry alien beasties. But Sonnenfeld did drop one more bombshell – MIB III will, like every single film in this or any other post-Avatar universe, will be in glorious 3D.

Actually, 3D should suit Sonnenfeld’s manic camerawork pretty well and, with the Smith/Jones deadpan dream team reunited, we’re now quietly optimistic about this one. Especially if they bring back Rip Torn – in full drunken bank-robbing mode – as Chief Zed.

I don't mind this one being in 3D, I just hope Rip Torn can make it back.

I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. He's been in a drunken stupor for years now. You would need to be pretty damn drunk to mistake a bank for your house.

Yeah I know, but I can dream....

I wonder if they'll have K become the boss and team J with someone new. I know it's the obvious way to go, so I hope they have a totally new Z (or Y).

Maybe F gets jealous of G because he's so close to H, but it turns out that H is an alien, which really grosses out I, J, and K. Meanwhile, A, B, and C, finally free from the controlling musical power of the Jackson 5, make an attempt to take over the world.

And that's not even TOUCHING the weird love triangle between Q, R, and S...

Columbia Pictures announced today that Men in Black III will be released in 3D on May 25, 2012. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are returning to produce and Barry Sonnenfeld, who directed the first two installments of the blockbuster franchise, will direct the film from a screenplay written by Etan Cohen, based on the comic book by Lowell Cunningham. Steven Spielberg is set to executive produce.

Deals are set for Will Smith, Sonnenfeld and the producing team to return to the blockbuster franchise with the intent to begin production by this fall and the studio is in advanced negotiations with Tommy Lee Jones to reprise his role as Agent Kay. Josh Brolin is also in talks to star as a young Agent Kay.

Commenting on the announcement, Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing and Distribution said, "Sony's summer of 2012 will get off to a red hot start with an incredible new 3D adventure for the Men in Black. We couldn't be more excited that the original filmmaking team responsible for the first two worldwide hits is reuniting for this third installment. We love where the story is taking Agents Jay and Kay and know this new chapter will deliver a fresh fun twist for fans of the franchise while also introducing the Men in Black to a whole new generation of moviegoers."
