The film has yet to be greenlit, true, but big names are already in the running for roles in the third intergalactic adventure featuring those alien-huntin' men in black.
While the return of Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K has yet to be confirmed, it's looking as though Will Smith will be pulling on the shades once again as Agent J to shoot a script penned by Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen.
Josh Brolin, still riding high after wowing critics in No Country For Old Men and Dubya film W. , has been attached to the project but nobody knows who he's playing.
He's the kind of guy who'd look good in a suit, however, so we're throwing our tin foil hat into the ring and guessing that perhaps he's playing another Agent alongside K and J.
Or, because you never know, he could be signing up to play younger version of Jones's character (they do look kind of similar; check him out as Bush...).
Once the film is given the go-ahead it could shoot next year, and original helmer Barry Sonnenfeld is a tentative director. In the meantime, check out Brolin in the upcoming Jonah Hex and Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps , or just watch No Country For Old Men again because it's that bloody good.
Think Brolin and Smith would make a good duo if Jones doesn't return? Or has the MIB franchise run its course after the less-than-stellar Men in Black 2 ? Comment below...
