As we mentioned before, Men In Black III has been plagued with production delays due to script troubles since taking a hiatus from filming last November.
So what's the problem? Here's the skinny.
After a re-write by Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen, they have now passed the script off to David Koepp, who wrote Jurassic Park and pretty much any other huge movie ever made.
Besides the issues with the screenplay, sources report tension between directory Barry Sonnenfeld and producer Walter Parkes, explaining:
"The real evil here is Walter trying to impose his point of view on things and because he's so facile and he's got great hair, he wins the day a lot. But what sounds great never materializes into a screenplay."
Well something better materialize soon because it's already been a decade since the last movie!
We'd have to say the biggest problem is beginning to film a movie without a finished script! Sony decided to start filming with only the first act of the script ready.
Apparently since the major players like Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Sonnenfeld were available to shoot in the fall the studio decided to take
a $200 million gamble advantage of the opportunity.
Bet they're regretting that now! Ha!
We're crossing our fingers that veteran screenwriter Koepp can fix this thing and make it work so we can, um, you know, maybe watch it some day? K, thanx!
Are U excited for this sequel?
