Josh Brolin in Men in Black 3?
Posted by LiveFor on December 9, 2009
Josh Brolin has been going from strength to strength lately. From The Goonies to W., Milk, No Country for Old Men and the forthcoming Jonah Hex he is definitely, like Hanzel, so hot right now. He was also cool in Planet Terror and is also working on Wall Street 2 and has signed up for the Coen Brothers True Grit remake.
News today from Hero Complex suggests he is being considered for a role in Men in Black 3 where he would be donning the suit and shades with Will Smith likely to return as Agent J.
The question is what role would Brolin be playing? Will Tommy Lee Jones be passing the title of Agent K to him or will Brolin be playing a younger version of Agent K? Maybe the plot will involve time travel shenanigans. Maybe Brolin will be the big bad of the piece.
Sony is currently contemplating a production start for the picture in 2010 (though it has yet to be greenlit). The film, which is based on a script by “Tropic Thunder” writer Ethan Cohen and which tentatively has Barry Sonnenfeld coming back to direct, could shoot at least partly in New York.
It all sounds like it could be very, very cool. I thought the first film was great. Funny, good action and nice chemistry between Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. However, cast your mind back to Men in Black 2. That wasn’t so hot now was it and I felt it kind of killed the series.
Still, third time’s the charm and if they get a cracking story it could work. It would be nice if Tommy Lee Jones was also in it for that No Country for Old Men team up again. Would be nice to see Brolin and Jones actually share some screen time together.
What are your thoughts on Brolin fighting the scum of the universe? Do you want a Men in Black 3? How can they improve on the second film?
