Is "Men In Black 3" a "Wild Wild West"-sized disaster waiting to happen? Guess we'll soon see, but given that filming has been pushed back after a scheduled mid-production break in order to get the script right, signs aren't great for the sequel that Sony hopes will make some mad bank. Regardless of any issues the film is facing, a release date is set and this thing is moving forward, ready or not, and another face has been added to the cast.

Is "Men In Black 3" a "Wild Wild West"-sized disaster waiting to happen? Guess we'll soon see, but given that filming has been pushed back after a scheduled mid-production break in order to get the script right, signs aren't great for the sequel that Sony hopes will make some mad bank. Regardless of any issues the film is facing, a release date is set and this thing is moving forward, ready or not, and another face has been added to the cast.

Deadline reports that Alice Eve has signed on to play a younger version of Emma Thompson's character in the forthcoming sequel. A time-travel film, the story will follow Agent J (Will Smith) who has to travel back to 1969 and team with Agent K (Josh Brolin playing the younger Tommy Lee Jones) to save the world. Eve will play Olivia, the beautiful secretary of the Agency.

The downtime between filming is not going to waste. While the script gets polished by the the recently hired Jeff Nathanson (“Catch Me If You Can,” “Rush Hour 2”), director Barry Sonnenfield has put together the footage he's already shot. So any worries about the film being delayed are likely for nought, as it's still on track for a May 25, 2012 release.
