Alec Baldwin, Sharlto Copley, Gemma Arterton All In Talks For ‘Men In Black 3’
  |  @   |  

A trio of new stars are reportedly in negotiations to join Barry Sonnenfeld‘s Men in Black III, the third installment in the mega franchise that began in 1997.

According to sources, 30 Rock star and “single greatest actor of all time” Alec Baldwin, District 9 and The A-Team‘s Sharlto Copley, and Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time actress Gemma Arterton are all said to be in negotiations with Sony for roles in the new movie.

If all goes well, Baldwin will play the man who runs MiB back in 1969, the year that star Will Smith will be traveling back to in order to save a young K (Josh Brolin) from Yaz (Jemaine Clement), a nasty alien who’s been sent back in time Terminator style to take K out and ensure the destruction of Earth…if plot details we’ve heard are accurate, that is.

  |  @   |  

It’s been rumored for a while now that either Borat and Bruno star Sacha Baron Cohen or Jemaine Clement were being talked to about roles in Columbia Pictures’ Men in Black III. Now it’s being confirmed by Deadline Hollywood that Clement has indeed joined the cast.

In the third chapter of the massively-successful franchise about a special and mysterious agency who patrols the Earth’s alien visitors and immigrants, Clement will play the new villain, named Yaz. The actor is best known for his dry, sarcastic humor on HBO’s popular series Flight of the Conchords, and in movies like Eagle vs. Shark and Gentleman Broncos.

Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones Confirmed For 3D ‘Men In Black 3’
  |  @   |  

Talks of a Men in Black III have been showing up quite a bit as of late, and the project has been gaining a lot of momentum. Last we heard, the star that could make or break a third flick, Will Smith, was choosing between returning to his alien-chasing suit and shades and a much less-visible family movie called The City That Sailed set up at his production studio.

Nothing is official yet and this could change tomorrow, but if you’re to believe franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld, who spoke to Showbiz 411‘s Roger Friedman recently, not only is Smith coming back for this trilogy-maker, but he’s actually already signed on! Sonnenfeld also shared that another huge question mark, Tommy Lee Jones, is ready to come back as well.

Rumor For Your Thoughts: Will Smith To Return For Two-Part ‘Independence Day 2’?
  |  @   |  

News that Will Smith was choosing between a family flick no one knows much about and returning for Men in Black III is still warm, but some pretty large-scale rumors are already materializing for the actor’s future.

It’s beginning to look more and more likely that not one, but possibly two sequels to Smith’s alien apocalypse movie Independence Day could be well on the way. This isn’t the first time rumors of these sequels have been heard, but the big elephant in the room was in fact paying the pile of money required to lure Smith back….something Fox was not willing (or perhaps able) to do.

Now comes word via IESB, who has a major scoop from a trusted source, that Mr. Will Smith is now actually locked in for both of these sequels. The news hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but everything seems to make enough sense for this to be happening now.

Choose Wisely: Will Smith Must Decide Between ‘Men In Black 3’ & ‘City That Sailed’
  |  @   |  

There’s no question that Will Smith is one of the biggest stars on the planet. One of his many memorable roles is as Agent J in both Men in Black movies, so when word came around that a Men in Black III was on the way, it was clear that Mr. Smith had to be involved for it to work.

Not so fast, kids.

According to reports, Smith is staring into the eyes of a major choice. One option is to reprise his role as Agent J in MiB III, which brings a huge payday considering the first two films have made over a billion dollars worldwide, or he can star in a movie called The City That Sailed.

This is the easiest decision ever made for fans, who all seem ready and excited for some more fun alien pursuit action, but there are complications involved. Smith has been doing a lot of work lately as a producer through his own Overbrook Films, and it is Overbrook who just so happen to be be behind the development of City That Sailed before 20th Century Fox picked up the property.
