Men In Black III Encounters Production Delays

Feature still planned for a May 2012 release

Men In Black III hasn't had a smooth start for awhile now so it's little surprise that a report from the LA Times indicates production is being delayed yet again after an already two month hiatus. Shooting is now set to begin on March 28th because of continuing issues with the script, which of course is being said by unnamed sources at this point that are close to the production. The film was originally going to start shooting last fall but they ended up doing the very unusual thing of splitting the production in half with its shooting schedule, with the November shoot focusing on the present day sequences while the planned February shoot was going to deal with the 1960's material. Of course, the main reason behind it has to do with money, as producer Walter Parkes revealed previously.

"We had to start shooting this year to take advantage of New York State tax incentives, but we also needed to be able to shoot certain exteriors in warmer weather," Parkes told 24 Frames last year. "So back in July we had the idea to keep the start date but build in a hiatus so we could essentially extend the production to late spring.”

According to Sony, the production delays are not going to impact the planned May 2012 release date of the feature.

Story concept: Few details about the film's plot have been confirmed though the film will revolve around a time travel plot with Agent J and Agent K having to go back in time to the 1960s to visit a young Agent K. The film's villain, Boris, travels back in time to try and kill Agent K in order to set off a chain of events which will result in the end of the world.

Not excited about this at all.

I thought MIB3's biggest issue was the fact that MIB2 sucked and no one really gives a damn anymore.

"Script problems"...

My confidence in this picture is just soaring right now.

This could be a good movie if they put Predators in it. Lets have the MIBs going after the Predators because they have killed to many people in they're hunting. Now that would be a good MIB3 movie.

The first film was amazing. Great fresh story, great characters, and great acting. But the second was so bad that the mention of a third sequel turned my stomach. Hearing this news makes me think my stomach was onto something.

Not excited either but it's something that I'll still check out once it comes out. Agree with Shasta maybe they can recapture some of the magic the first film had going for it.

Not good when they have delays due to script problems.  If I were Wil Smith I would bail on this project, he's already had one Wild Wild West.

Ah, you naysayers. Yeah, MIB2 was bad, but that doesn't mean this one will be. We didn't have Agent K throughout the first act of that film, not to mention we had a stupid villain and a retreading of the first MIB film plot. This one will improve. I'm there for this one.

I cant get into this one either though I will at least wait for a trailer. Im sure will also has a handful trying to launch his daughter's career with his own version of (SHUDDERS VIOLENTLY) Annie.

Perhaps smith does need a bad movie or to to get him to realize that some movie properties should be left alone.

A remake is pretty bad but at least Hollywood hasn't made a seqeul to Annie.

MiB3 has delays do to script problems, that is so funny.  The studio must have thought that the 3D would make up for the bad script and now they relize that with the decline in 3D popularity the movie is going to need a story if its going to make any money.
