Alec Baldwin, Sharlto Copley, and Gemma Arterton up for parts in Men in Black III

10.14.2010by:

Really enjoyed the first MIB, thought the second one was a piece of shit, and am so beyond indifferent for this third installment. But one very good thing seems to be that they're building up MEN IN BLACK III with a pretty great cast.

According to Pajiba, Alec Baldwin, Sharlto Copley, and Gemma Arterton are all in negotiations to jump aboard the second Barry Sonnenfeld sequel. They'll be joining a cast that already boasts the names of Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Emma Thompson, and Jemaine Clement. Pajiba adds, "Arterton would play a secretary in the 1969 version of MIB; Baldwin would play the 1969 MIB boss; and Copley would play a fast-talking Yoda type alien." Also, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger (pictured below) has been offered a cameo role as Clement's girlfriend.

From our own detailed report earlier this year: "The film has Agent Jay sent back in time to 1969 where he teams up with a young Kay (Brolin) to stop an evil villain named Yaz (Clement) from destroying the world in the future."

MEN IN BLACK III is set to begin production next month and will open Memorial Day weekend of 2012.

will the whole movie be in the past, and does that mean Tommy only makes a cameo?

seems cool, but I'll wait for a trailer.

I STILL couldn't care less for part three of two awful movies.

MIB is the only film where I can tolerate Will Smith only because everything else was awesome about it. Adding Copley and Baldwin has my ticket already bought.

With this casting, I have a little bit more hope than I did yesterday, still cautious though.

I wonder how they're going to get Brolin to lose 150 lbs to play a 'young' (let's face it, Brolin looks as old as Jones now) Jones. Granted, even after losing the 150 lbs, he'll still be in the 300 lb range, but that's neither here nor there.

Why would people vote me down? It's the truth, at least get the name of the character right.

I'm on board as long as Will Smith doesn't do another stupid fucking rap song for it.

Wow, this is indeed lining up to be a great cast. I liked the first MIB and I didn't mind the second, so I'm optimistic about the third.

I feel more confident in this project. The premise sounds like Back to the Future combines with some action movies.

Could be alright.

MIB 2 sucked, but this could potentially be pretty entertaining.
But didn't that animated series do an episode with this exact storyline? Or am I the only one who watched that show...

They did. Though this makes me think that it was probably just a storyline in the original comic or something if both end up using it. And my two cents, my favorite thing about the series was Tommy Lee Jones, so I'm worried there won't be enough of older Kay to keep my interest. I'll still see it, but I don't want to be disappointed.
