Way to keep everyone on the same page, Will!
Men in Black III has been experiencing all types of delays because of screenplay issues…and now another bizarre issue has come up with regards to the script.
While other writers were working on the script, Will Smith brought in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air writer Mike Soccio to "punch up his part," but NONE of the other writers even knew about him.
Here's what Sony had to say about this mystery writer in a statement:
"[Soccio] was hired for minor on-set punch-up work during our initial production period while [screenplay writer] Etan [Cohen] was not on location. If any writer was unaware of his involvement, we regret that.”
No word on any writers taking any kind of extreme offense to Soccio's involvement, but that's definitely strange.
Maybe they can flashy-thing the writers, so nobody remembers any of this!
…But then they'd have to flashy-thing us too…we take it back! We like our memory as is. Ha!
Do U think it was shady for them to bring on a writer without telling anybody? Or do U think it's not a big deal?
