Emma Thompson in Talks to Join the Ranks of Men in Black 3D

MiB / Emma Thompson

We already have a bona fide promise from Will Smith that he's "about to make 3D look good" in the new sequel Men in Black 3D, but now someone else is about to make it a bit more interesting, too. Heat Vision reports British actress Emma Thompson is negotiating to join the sequel as Agent Oh, who is monitoring a, presumably alien, prison breakout. She joins returning cast member Tommy Lee Jones and new additions like Jemaine Clement (as the villain Yaz) and Josh Brolin as a younger version of Jones' character, Agent Kay, during a part of the story that involves Jay traveling back in time to 1969 for some unknown reason.

Once again, since we're not sure why Agent Jay has to go back in time, or what dastardly plans Yaz has for the planet Earth, we can only speculate that it may have something to do with the historical moon landing which just happened to take place in the year 1969. The sequel starts shooting later this month in NYC with franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld working from a script by Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen. The secretive script was also recently given a new draft by David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Spider-Man) so it sounds like the sequel is in good hands and should fare better than the atrocious Men in Black 2. Sound good?

    I love Emma Thompson, I hope she joins! MIB 2 left a bad taste in my mouth so I'm very hesitant as of right now. Cut the 3-D and I'll be sold.

    Sad. She reminds me of Natasha Richardson. She was so pleseant. Yeah keep up the good work. So yea, Thompson in MIB. It'd be fun I guess. Good cast so far. Yes MIB II was horrible.

    Pfffft. Whats she going to add to this aside from another cook in already crowded kitchen? Besides, Nanny McNobody here hasnt contributed to quality cinema, not even Potter, since the days of Branaugh and Dead Again.
