Alec Baldwin Departs the Struggling Production of 'Men in Black 3'
Last month we learned that the start of production last year on Men in Black 3, without a completed script, had caused another month of delay from when it should have resumed in February. The delay didn't seem to have any adverse affects on the project's timetable, but it definitely has created some concerns. Now the production's instability is even more apparent as Vulture spoke to Alec Baldwin (who was said to be involved with the film last October) and the actor revealed, "I'm not doing that. I'm out of it; the schedule didn't work out." Whether it's his "30 Rock" schedule or Rock of Ages holding him back is still unclear.
This is just some more bad news for the production of Men in Black 3. Though we didn't cover the initial report, THR ran an extensive and troubling post on the hastily put together, and struggling production, of the sequel that not has screenplay problems, director and producer clashes and plenty of obvious scheduling issues. As someone who was hoping for redemption from the pile of space trash that was Men in Black 2, I'm really starting to worry that a cast that includes Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones being joined by the likes of Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve and more just won't be enough to help this film stand on its own two feet. We'll find out next summer, I guess. Worried?
