Men in Black 3 gets a release date

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2010

It is all going ahead. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back with Josh Brolin playing a young Agent Kay. Not sure if this will be flashbacks or whether Tommy Lee Jones gets youngified.

I just hope it is better than the second film.

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.”

The first two Men in Black films, which were released in 1997 and 2002, went on to become two of the most successful films in Columbia Pictures history, taking in more than $1 billion combined worldwide. The first film in the franchise won an Academy Award(r) for Best Makeup and was nominated for two other Oscars

Captain America – Is Tommy Lee Jones helping him out?

Posted by LiveFor on April 30, 2010

The main parts have been cast, although still not sure if Hugo Weaving has definitely signed up as the Red Skull. Now UGO have a rumour from a reliable source that Tommy Lee Jones may also be starring in the film.

No word on who he will be playing if he does get involved, but as shooting begins at the end of June and Men in Black 3 is also due to start filming this summer Mr Jones may either be very busy or won’t be in Captain America.

I imagine he will be playing a military character, maybe one of the Howling Commandos? What do you think?

Men in Black 3 – Will Smith is signed up and Tommy Lee Jones is coming with him?

Posted by LiveFor on April 21, 2010

Director Barry Sonnenfeld has apparently been chatting with Showbiz411 about Men in Black 3D. Will Smith has signed on, Tommy Lee Jones is in, and they are just waiting on a script.

I knew that this kept surfacing, but I am surprised Will Smith has signed on already.

Past rumours have also had Josh Brolin, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jermaine Clement being in talks for roles in the film.

Not sure if I want a Men in Black 3. I enjoyed the first one, but was really disappointed in the second. Minid you I am glad Tommy Lee Jones could be back.

Do you want a third one? What do you want to see in it?

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?

Posted by LiveFor on April 22, 2009

The Fresh Prince, one time partner to Jazzy Jeff, owner of a fine pair of ears, seems to be a really nice bloke and a major movie star. He has starred in many a movie – some good, some not so good – yet which one is your favourite?

Men in Black 3 is moving forward

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2009

The ShoWest annual convention was kicked off in Las Vegas yesterday and a big bit of news has come forward from the convention floor today. Collider is reporting that Sony Pictures is moving forward with a third Men In Black film.

The announcement was made at the Sony presentation by Rory Bruer, president of Sony Worldwide Distribution, who also mentioned the studio was currently working on Ghostbusters 3 and Spider-Man 4 right now.

It was said that Bruer did mention the year 2011 in regards to the film, but it wasn’t clear if that was when they were targeting these three films for release or not.

Men in Black 3 rumour.

Posted by LiveFor on September 30, 2008

The latest issue of Parade has an interview with producer Walter Parkes who apparently comments on the status of another Men in Black movie.

In response to a question about a Men in Black 3, Parkes says “the challenge is getting the script right and finding a time when our busy stars are available.” He then goes on to say “Everyone, including Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, wants to do another.”

Now I can’t find anything more on this and was surprised on the last part of his comment. I did not think either of the two stars wanted to do another one after the naffness that was Men In Black 2.

If you hear anything more on this let me know. Do you want to see a third Men In Black movie?
