‘Men In Black 3′ will finish the trilogy and set up a reboot, says director
Barry Sonnenfeld talks about how the threequel wraps things up for a potential reboot.
It has had quite an odd shooting schedule and some bad buzz behind it, but ‘Men In Black 3′ is a month away from releasing and it’s promotion time for all the actors involved. But even director Barry Sonnenfeld talks about the third film and how it will be the end of this trilogy.
MTV has the interview with the director and he talks about it:
The fantastic thing about “Men in Black 3″ is that it totally closes out the trilogy, it answers questions that you didn’t even know you should be asking, it leaves you emotionally warm and sad and happy, and it could also reboot the franchise. But I can’t even begin to tell you how to interpret all of that. [Laughs] But I would say this: If your interpretation is that “Men in Black 4″ will only star the worm guys and Frank the pug, you are wrong.
So this trilogy will be the only one to have Will Smith and the gang in it? What about the reboot? This suddenly opens up a lot of questions that the director will be asked in the coming days. There’s more, where he talks about Jemaine Clement playing the villain:
Jemaine delivers a totally villainous performance. If there’s any comedy at all, it’s just through frustration. [Laughs] The great thing about Earth is that it can be a frustrating place for aliens. We don’t think clearly, we’re not logical all the time. But Jemaine is not on board this movie for comic relief. His performance is really strong and really villainous. Think about it: If you had not seen the first “Men in Black,” and people had told you that Tommy lee Jones was funny, you wouldn’t have believed it. This is the same thing — no one is trying to be funny. I want my actors to be real. If it’s a funny situation, I want it to be funny. But I don’t want anyone to play to the comedy. Let the audience find the comedy; I don’t want to tell any [of the cast or crew] where it is. So, Jemaine does not deliver a comedic performance. While there are moments of humor that the audience will find funny, Jemaine himself is not being funny, if you get that.
That’s good to know. Men In Black 2 is my worst Will Smith film so far and the first one was a real blast. With reservations, looking forward to the film.
