According to Pajiba Alec Baldwin, Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team), Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans, Tamara Drewe) and Nicole Sherzinger are joining the cast of Men In Black 3.

Arterton would play a secretary in the 1969 version of MIB; Baldwin would play the 1969 MIB boss; and Copley would play a fast-talking Yoda type alien. Nicole Sherzinger has also been offered a cameo as Clement’s girlfriend.

At this moment in time other cast members include Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reprising their roles, Sacha Baron Cohen, Emma Thompson, Josh Brolin portraying a younger version of Tommy Lee Jones’s character Agent Kay, and Jemaine Clement portraying the villain.

Men In Black 1 & 2 – which came out in 1997 and 2002 respectively, have combined to earn nearly $1.1 billion worldwide (big cheese $$$$). Men In Black is one of my favourite popcorn movies of the last 15 years, Men In Black 2 was a bit on the lame side for me though, fingers crossed this will be a return to form. Men in Black 3 is set for release May 25th, 2012 and is directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.
