Emma Thompson is in negotiations to star in Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black III. Thompson would join Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the project, which will also star Josh Brolin and Jemaine Clement.
Barry Sonnenfeld is directing the project, which reunites Smith’s Agent Jay with Tommy Lee Jones’ Agent Kay. Most of the action, however, takes place in the 1969 with Josh Brolin playing a young Jones.
Thompson will play take-charge MIB operative Agent Oh, who is monitoring a prison breakout. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing. David Koepp wrote the most recent draft.
Men in Black III begins filming in New York later this month and is scheduled to hit conventional and 3D theaters on May 25, 2012.
