We learned that Columbia was finally moving forward with a third Men in Black movie back in April, but at the time there was no script attached to the project, and it just seemed like one of those way off things. In October we learned that Tropic Thunder/Idiocracy screenwriter Etan Cohen had been brought on board to carve out a script. Columbia must have a draft in hand, because they’re already beginning the casting process.
According to the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Blog, Josh Brolin (W., No Country For Old Men) is in consideration for a lead role in the third film. It is unclear if Brolin would play a new single-monikered government agent or Tommy Lee Jones‘ character Agent K, as a young man. Lets hope that Brolin isn’t playing the typical role of an original young upstart that J or K must then train. There’s no word yet on Jones’ involvement, but Will Smith is expected to return, if they can fit the sequel into his busy schedule.
