Men In Black 3 ’s pre-planned holiday hiatus may have been extended as script-honing takes place, but the casting department are still busily doing their jobs.

So Alice Eve ( She's Out Of My League ) has just been recruited to play a younger version of Emma Thompson’s character, Olivia.

She’ll appear in the 1969 portion of the film, in which Will Smith’s Agent J travels back in time to work with a young Agent K (Josh Brolin) in order to save the world.

Olivia is a secretary at the Agency in 1969, but by the time we get to present day, she's now in charge of the place.

Production on the threequel took a pause over the holidays, and won’t resume for another month as the writers attempt to polish the existing script until it gleams.

Considering the amount of films that make the script up as they go along, this can only be a good thing.

Men In Black 3 opens 25 May, 2012.
