Men in Black 3 has been moving along nicely over the past few weeks. First we heard that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones would be returning, along with Josh Brolin as a new addition to the franchise. Columbia then set a May 25th 2012 release date for the film, and now they’ve found their villain in the form of Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords.
More from Heat Vision:
Most of the new casting will be the villains, whose identities, look and super-abilities are being kept under lock and key. It is known that Clement is playing a villain named Boris, who is described as being charmy and creepy at the same time. (The name Yaz was used as a filler name, and since the script is still being polished, there is a chance the name may change again.)
I’m not familiar with Jemaine Clement, however from the image above he looks both ‘charmy’ and ‘creepy’.
No specific details on the story have been revealed thus far, although we do know that the film will use a time travel element that moves the action back to 1969 and Josh Brolin will play the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones’s character.
