In "Men in Black 3," Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner.
But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right.
J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
Michael Bay expressed interest in directing.
Screenwriter David Koepp, who was originally involved with Men in Black II but left to write Spider-Man, signed on permanently for this film.
Sacha Baron Cohen was considered for the role of Boris.
Betty White was originally rumored to have a role.
This is Will Smith's first film in 3.5 years, since the release of Seven Pounds in December 2008. This is the longest he has gone without appearing in a movie since his film career started in 1993.
Gemma Arterton was originally cast as young Agent O, but scheduling conflicts prevented Arterton from taking the role.
Josh Brolin plays a younger version of Tommy Lee Jones's character Agent K. Brolin's wife Diane Lane appeared with Jones in Lonesome Dove. In the sequel Streets of Laredo, Lane's role was taken over by Sissy Spacek, who played Tommy Lee Jones's wife in Coal Miner's Daughter and is the cousin of MIB co-star Rip Torn.
