Josh Brolin Was Worried About MIB3

Will Smith and Josh BrolinJosh Brolin worried he might "ruin" the whole Men In Black series by appearing in the third movie.

The 44-year-old actor plays Young Agent K in the film alongside Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones - who reprised their roles in the sci-fi movie as Agent J and Agent K respectively - but he was concerned about how his co-stars might react to him joining the film franchise.

"I thought, 'Oh, yeah, this could be a career-killer. I could ruin an entire series, because I'm severing this great iconic duo, this great chemistry that people really enjoy.' If someone came to my franchise and said, 'Listen, you're still going to bookend it, but we're going to bring in this younger guy instead,' I can't imagine I wouldn't be like, 'Huh? What are you talking about?' I don't know if he felt like that. And if he did he'd never tell me."

Despite starring in a number of big blockbusters, Josh - who has been married to actress Diane Lane since 2004 - admits he no longer feels he has to "push" himself in life and doesn't mind taking the "boring" approach.

Men In Black 3 is the ‘Most Action-Packed Movie Yet’

Men in Black 3Men In Black 3 will have "more action, aliens and magic" than the previous two films in the franchise.

The movie's director Barry Sonnenfeld believes the latest addition to the sci-fi comedy series has "something new and inventive" in the shape of a time travel element that sees Agent J (Will Smith) go back in time to the 1960s to stop an alien from assassinating Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones).

"The relationships are incredibly strong. From Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, between Will Smith and Josh Brolin. And I think we also have more action than in Men In Black 3 than in Men In Black and Men In Black 2' Also, more aliens and more magic. The audiences will be amused, amazed and also moved. I think if we can do all of those three things then we'll have a really successful movie. With Men In Black 3, it's not only a Men In Black movie, it's also a time travel movie. We wanted the movie to be both familiar and different. We wanted to bring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back together again. But we also wanted something new and inventive, and that came in the time travel element," he said when asked what the chemistry was like between Will and Josh Brolin - who plays a younger version of Agent K.

Will Smith Originated Men In Black 3

Men in Black 3Will Smith came up with the concept for Men In Black 3.

The actor reprises his role as alien fighting Agent J in the third installment of the popular movie franchise and director Barry Sonnenfeld revealed Will came up with the idea himself, which sees him travel back in time to rescue his partner (played by Tommy Lee Jones).

"Will calls me Baz. When we were shooting Men In Black II [in 2002], one night he said, 'Hey Baz, I think I have an idea for number three.' The basic idea was that Will's character, Agent J, would have to go back into the past to save his partner. It allowed the movie to take place in another era, and us to learn more about Tommy Lee Jones' character. But it turned out to be a very long process of development, mainly because of the knotting issues of time travel, the time travel thing was really hard," Sonnenfeld said.

He also revealed he started shooting the movie without a finished script which made the whole process more difficult: "We knew starting the movie that we didn't have a finished second or third act. Was it responsible? The answer is, if the movie does as well as I think it will, it was genius. If it's a total failure, then it was a really stupid idea."

Adam Sandler-It pays to be one of Adam Sandler’s friends. According to Chris Rock, the comedian gave his (male) Grown Ups costars Maseratis as “Thank You” presents. (He could just give me the $200,000 in cash.)

-Batman Live will be hitting the UK and the US next year. The traveling stage production – which will not be a musical – will include a “brand new original storyline” and a list of familiar Batman characters.

-Although we shouldn’t be surprised to hear about a “Chilean miners” film – did you know that shooting on The 33 of San Jose started five days after the miners were rescued? No release date has been announced yet.

-Despite reports that Betty White would join the cast of Men in Black III, it appears that news wasn’t true. “Where did that come from?” the Golden Girl questioned. "All these rumors come up but there is absolutely no truth to any of it."
