Apparently, not only is MEN IN BLACK III in need of  a script overhaul, but according to Deadline, the cast is getting a bit of a fresh face as well.

The outlet has revealed that Alice Eve will join the film when it starts back up next month, and will play a young version of MIB Agency head Olivia in 1969, when she was only a hired secretary for the agency. The older version of the character is played by Emma Thompson, who basically runs the place. MEN IN BLACK III follows Will Smith’s Agent J, as he must help save the world with a young Agent K, played by Josh Brolin. With talks of major script issues, casting at this late of a stage in the game definitely doesn’t boost my confidence for the film.

Hit the break for news on the ever-growing cast of NEW YEAR’S EVE.

The upcoming neo-sequel to Garry Marshall’s 2010 romantic comedy VALENTINE’S DAY, NEW YEAR’S EVE, has seemingly gotten a new cast member each day, and today is no different. First, THR has revealed that Carla Gugino has joined the film’s cast, which includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michelle, Robert De Niro, Jessica Biel and Seth Meyers. The film will follow a group of people over one fateful New Year’s Eve.

Finally, THR is also reporting that Halle Berry has re-joined the film’s cast, after apparently pulling out due to personal reasons. Personally, I think the addition of both Berry and Gugino may be great on paper, but do absolutely nothing to make me think this will be a film worth its weight in celluloid.
