Men In Black 3 Will Shoot This Winter In NY
By Will LeBlanc: 2010-06-18 17:08:39

Men in Black 3, or as it'll most likely be titled M3n in Black 3D, has been a project a few people have been on the fence about, but that most would like to just see go away. The original film is a classic, but director Barry Sonnenfeld missed the mark with his sequel and few have the confidence that he'll be able to produce a good follow up to the 2002 flop.

That's not stopping him from moving forward though. With Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back on board the project easily landed the money it needed to start shooting and according to the Production Weekly Twitter feed, they'll be shooting in NYC from September through December. Story details are slim as all we know so far is that Jemaine Clement will play an evil alien named Boris who travels back in time to 1969 to execute some sort of shady plan. The post specifically says that they'll wrap photography on New Years Eve, will they be including Dick Clark festivities in the final cut?

The Etan Cohen script is currently being rewritten by Spider-Man scribe David Koepp, who has been hit or miss over the years, but has squirted out some winners here and there.

With shooting wrapped up by the end of 2010, expect to start seeing teasers and posters start dropping by Independence Day with the film actually finding theaters in May 2012. How about it, gang? Where do you stand on the threequel? Yay or nay? Excited or peed? Sound off in the comments below.

A little about Jemaine's character: Exclusive: Men in Black III Script Review

Quote:
Yaz is described as an “evil hippie/biker badass right out of Easy Rider” with “a huge mane of hair” and “a big handlebar mustache that frames his grubby unshaven face.” These features are all “strangely alive” and we later learn Yaz is an assembler, meaning his independent body parts are capable of reattaching themselves after a fight.


Rawr at the physical description! :drool: I'd love to see Jemaine play a pure villain but I have a feeling they're going to throw some funny in there somewhere.

"hippie/biker badass" is a bit of a oxymoron, no?

“a huge mane of hair” and “a big handlebar mustache that frames his grubby unshaven face.” Will we ever get to see Jemaine in a movie where he has normal hair? :lol:

Hairy Jemaine! Interesting. Wasn't really expecting that but I can't wait to see exactly how he'll look in the film. :D

There are open casting calls for filming taking place from September 13th 2010 to December 31st 2010 in New York. Click here for more info.

What?! :shock:

*checks for flights to NY*

If production was in LA, I would so be at the open call. Nancy, aren't you an actor (or have theatre experience)? You should try out!

Aren't you folks so sweet and supportive? I was looking for the breakdown of what they're looking for, and the only thing I'm the least bit right for would be a late 60's secretary, although my hair might not be right. I don't think older secretaries had Twiggy haircuts. I can't remember what my hair was like in 1969. :puzzled:

Wigs! But surely a Twiggy cut should work, too. Jane Hathaway, the secretary on the Beverly Hillbillies had a fairly short cut. Go for it!

More inside info on Jemaine's character HERE!

"There’s only one real bad guy in the film, and it’s Yaz, described as a nightmare biker who looks like Dennis Hopper and Satan. But it would seem it would be hard to craft a “badass hell biker” villain who is played by Flight of the Conchord’s Jemaine Clement and named after a side-effect prone brand of birth control. He’s not meant to be particularly funny and the movie is careful to describe him as oozing badassery and violence out of every pore, which makes me wonder why they’d cast Clement over someone more appropriate like Ron Perlman or Mickey Rourke."

:shock:

Thanks vmh! Looks like we might get to see a whole other side to J yet! I'm sure he will interpret the role very well and in his own unique fashion :supz:

The writer never saw "Eagle vs Shark", did he? (or she)
That was some acting, right there.

No kidding. That writer doesn't know what he's talking about. Jemaine will most certainly pull it off.
