Unfinished Screenplay Has Delayed Production on 'Men in Black 3D'

Men in Black

Even though Will Smith promised to "make 3D look good" with next summer's sequel Men in Black 3, apparently that promise may have been made without a completed script. Production on the sci-fi sequel bringing Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back into action was expected to resume this week after a two month break. However, now the project will not resume shooting until March 28th. Why? Well, EW has learned that Sony is giving director Barry Sonnenfeld a little more time to prep the final act of the film after the dailies on the first act turned out so well. This means that more writing is being done to clean up the ending.

Apparently writer Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) was recently brought on board to work on the script for about four weeks, but now the script's original writer Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) is being brought back to finish up the script. Rewrites are certainly worrisome this late in the game, especially with something as crucial as the ending of the film. However, apparently this production delay won't impact the film's slated release on Memorial Day in 2012. Since Men in Black II was a wretched piece of filth, I'm really hoping this sequel doesn't follow in the same messy, disappointing footsteps. Anyone worried?

    I propose re-think all the script... of the second part, before taking any care about the third one. The "Will-Smith-kind-of-way" of Men In Black was so lame (even the first one).

    I dont understand all the negative comments. I love the Men in Black movies, they are cheesy and stupid, and thats what i love about them. Its def not going to win any awards, but they are entertaining. To me anyway, i dont expect much from them, just a few good laughs..

      Man, it's okay if you love them. For me (and me only) was too much cheesy-Will-Smith material that I can handle.
