Barry Sonnenfeld recently spoke with MTV about the future of this sci-fi series, and hinted that we may see more of Josh Brolin as a younger Agent K in the 70s, but the Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones relationship is completely wrapped up with this latest outing.
Barry Sonnenfeld also clarified rumors that the film was in shambles during production.
So we started the movie with a full script and with a really great first act - but the second and third needed work. We built in a two-month hiatus so we could continue working on the script and not need an eight-week reshoot. So that's what we did. The truth is, the great thing about the movie, is that there was no stress between myself and any of the actors. We all got along very well. You don't ever want a director and a movie star who see two different movies. But we all were working with the same ideas in mind. We knew the characters, we knew the history, and we were very much in sync.
People don't know this, but the end and plot of the first Men In Black was changed after we shot the picture, months and months and months after shooting. We had cut the movie and were ready to mix it and everything. But I took one scene and got a phonetics expert to change what the two aliens were saying - they were speaking English, and we changed it to an alien language, and subtitled what they were saying. That totally changed the plot of the movie. So, we did not have to do that on this movie. We got [the story] right the first time; it just took a long time to get there. The movie is really good, and it looks great. I think it's going to be fantastic in 3-D, too."
