Sacha Baron Cohen and Jemain Clement being eyed for Men in Black 3?

03.09.2010

It most definitely slipped my mind that a MEN IN BLACK sequel was actually in the works, probably because the last film was released eight years ago and neither Tommy Lee Jones or Will Smith are officially attached to the project at this point.

What the film does have however, is a script written by TROPIC THUNDER and IDIOCRACY’s Etan Cohen, and now we have a few more rumored cast members to throw into the mix.

We heard a while back the Josh Brolin was strongly being considered for a part (he’s still not officially on board yet though) and now Bloody Disgusting is reporting that insiders say Sacha Baron Cohen (BORAT) and Jemaine Clement (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) are being considered for a role in the film named, “Yaz.”

Now, since “Yaz” isn’t a letter of the alphabet, it can be assumed they’re not playing MIB agents, and really, just by looking at them, the obvious conclusion would be some sort of alien presence.

I think this whole project depends on Smith’s involvement, as I feel like they could replace Tommy Lee Jones if need be and not many would cry foul. A cocky kickass loudmouth isn’t exactly a stretch for Smith, so presumably he could shoot this thing in a month, and then go back to trying to win an Oscar again. We’ll see.

Extra Tidbit: The mind-eraser still stands as one of the coolest pieces of movie tech ever if you ask me.

I love the 1st Men in Black but hate Men in Black 2. If they can get Men in Black 3 to be similar to the 1st one, I'm game.

Hells yeah...

If they can get the main man himself back in, link him up with Josh Brolin as a newer fresher, equally as grumpy sidekick.... and have them fighting an alien Jermain Clement, then it is on like donkey kong!

Fucking love Men in Black.........that sounded gay.

I liked the MIB movies but thought they would be better without Will. I mean I cringe every time I hear "You know what the difference between you and me are? I make this look good."

Another sequel no way! After Men In Black 2 wasn't as good as the original i'd prefer another Ghostbusters movie instead.

Oh, I get it now...

I was totally sold on this until I read they weren't the two new agents. Screw Willennium.

Not sold yet...

I'd be up for another MIB, but only if Jones and Smith were back. They ARE the MIB. The dynamic between K and J was what made the series for me. If they tried to pass it off to another set of actors I don't think it would fare as well.

I see how this could go. Agent J is given the assignment by Zed to recruit new agents with two potentials that stand out: a wise ass cop (cohen) and a former researcher skeptic(Clement. Together along with J they attempt to stop an invasion by the bug. How is that for an idea?

Hell. Yes. But only if Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones come back.

And Will Smith has to do a new song. (I miss those)

Jemaine!

"I think, sometimes you hear what you wanna hear. It wouldn't be gay to put a wig on a man and pretend they're a woman. How could that be gay if you're pretending they're a woman? Not that I did it."

Y&Z??

Could it be that Cohen and Clement play agents Y and Z? Now imagine them as Siamese twins or something and voila, Y&Z (or YAZ). Think about it, this could make sense in the scheme of things in the MIB universe..

Oh wait, just remembered Rip Torn's already Agent Zed. well, so much for that..

No thanks.

Can't stand Cohen. In fact, I think he's more over rated than Seth Rogen.

I'm fine with this.

Bring back Vincent D'onofrio and take him from the sea of stupid tv cop dramas.

Pretty sure they'll have to switch the "Yaz" name unless aliens are responsible for creating our birth control, which could be a funny, though minor, twist...

just let these two take over the main roles and write a sequel that has nothing to do with the previous film. build on the "hey look at the alien technology with hillarious effects" ideas. Side note - anyone realize yaz is a birth control?
