The upcoming feature film Men In Black III is currently in pre-production and the extras casting director is holding an open casting call for background performers to appear in the film. Sony Pictures Inc., has announced that the film will be released in 3D on May 25, 2012.
Men In Black III will be directed and co-produced by Primetime Emmy Award winning director Barry Sonnenfeld, who has helmed such film as Get Shorty, Wild Wild West, and of course the first two installments of Men In Black. Steven Spielberg is also on board to co-produce with Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald of the Los Angeles based Parkes/MacDonald Productions. Etan Cohen has penned the script, and rumors of him being replaced by David Koepp are untrue, although Koepp did some brief work on the script. Cohen's writing credits include Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and Tropic Thunder.
