Arterton, Baldwin and Copley join Men In Black 3

Third film bags more stars

The Men in Black 3 cast continues to grow with the news that Alec Baldwin, Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team), and current go-to girl, Gemma Arterton, have joined the project.

This third outing really has managed to secure quite an impressive line-up. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are both returning, alongside Josh Brolin, Jemiane Clement and Emma Thompson.

The plot sees Smith's Jay sent back in time to 1969, where he teams up with a young Kay (Brolin) to defeat Clement's evil alien, Yaz.

Arterton will play a secretary in the 60s MiB headquarters, and Baldwin the head of MiB at that time, with Copley as a "fast talking, Yoda-type alien" . Thompson will be playing the head of MiB in the present.

Men in Black 3 is directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and is due for release on 25 May 2012.
