“Men in Black 3-D” Set to Roll with Will Smith

By Roger Friedman

I guess it’s official, more or less.

Director Barry Sonnenfeld tells me that “Men in Black 3-D” is ready to roll. Will Smith has signed on, Tommy Lee Jones is in, and a script is awaited.

Yes. I did say 3D. “Men in Black 3″ will be in 3D. Sonnenfeld says it is so. Why not? Everything else is, and this is one movie that might be cool in the process.

Sonnenfeld told me he’d get me a neuralizer–that’s the cigar holder like gizmo that erases memories–but he couldn’t promise it would work! (I love that thing.)

Nevertheless, you can bet Sony is juiced to get this puppy moving since “Spider Man 4″ fell apart. They are in desperate need of a blockbuster for next Memorial Day May 2011. And “Men in Black” is like money in the bank.

I ran into Sonnenfeld, by the way, at Vanity Fair’s annual outdoor cocktail soiree at the New York State Supreme Court building. This is the party that launches the Tribeca Film Festival. Graydon Carter greeted each guest as they climbed the massive stairs to th e portico. Right behind him were Robert DeNiro and Grace Hightower, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff, and everyone who’s anyone in town.

    True. I loved the first one and somewhat enjoyed the second one. I don’t mind if Brolin came in as a new character (new Zed maybe? Though I wasn’t Rip Torn to be involved still.) but Tommy Lee Jones has to be there.

    I say ONLY do MIB 3 if Tommy Lee Jones comes back, none of this Josh Brolin junk. I like Brolin a lot but Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith ARE the MIB franchise
