Barry Sonnenfeld (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001756/) has confirmed to Roger Friedman that Will Smith (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000226/) and, after months of speculation, Tommy Lee Jones (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000169/) will star in Men In Black 3 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1409024/). Smith has been on board Sonyís threequel for some time, but Jonesí involvement was less clear, with Josh Brolin (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000982/) mooted as a replacement, while the likes of Sacha Baron Cohen (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0056187/) had also been in the casting frame. However, Jones has been concentrating on smaller dramas, like In The Electric Mist (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0910905/) and The Company Men (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1172991/), for some time, so the chance to exercise those blockbuster muscles (and pay for a new conservatory) was probably too good to pass up.At the moment, little is known about the plot of the movie, which Sony will be aiming to get into cinemas by Memorial Day 2011 (thatís May 30, 2011 to the rest of us), but we imagine itíll involve Agent Jay (Smith) and Kay (Jones) getting in way over their heads with some angry alien beasties. But Sonnenfeld did drop one more bombshell Ė MIB III will, like every single film in this or any other post-Avatar universe, will be in glorious 3D.
