MEN IN BLACK 3 will be 3D
It’s official. We’re getting 3D tentacles. MEN IN BLACK 3 is set to make its long-awaited screen debut on May 25, 2012. Barry Sonnenfeld, who directed the first MIB (a truly fun and incredibly weird action-comedy), as well as MIB2 (a bland film suffering from a bad case of sequel-itis) will also helm the third (fingers crossed). TROPIC THUNDER scribe Etan Cohen will write the screenplay, based on the somewhat entertaining comic book by Lowell Cunningham. Oh, and some guy named Steven Spielberg is set to executive produce.
Big Will Smith is back on board the mothership, along with Josh Brolin, who looks to be playing a younger version of Agent Kay. The original Agent Kay, Tommy Lee Jones, is in final negotiations to return. Translated, this means Jones is waiting for the right amount of trucks that will back up to his driveway and dump mountains of cash on his xeriscaped lawn.
I could muster a lot more excitement for this project if Sonnenfeld wasn’t attached. You never know which director you’re going to get with him. He’s so hit-or-miss that any project he’s attached to now should be guarded and watched closely.
Frankly, the news that MIB3 will in fact be MIB3D is much more reason to get a little jazzed. For all the debate going on currently about 3D, a MEN IN BLACK film is perfectly suited for the technology. Although I can’t see Sonnenfeld shooting with the Pace 3D cameras, so I’m betting this will be converted to 3D later on. Hopefully, that won’t be the case. At least we can hear that great Danny Elfman score again! (Will Smith video not included.)
