Arterton, Baldwin and Copley join Men In Black 3

Third film bags more stars

The Men in Black 3 cast continues to grow with the news that Alec Baldwin, Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team), and current go-to girl, Gemma Arterton, have joined the project.

This third outing really has managed to secure quite an impressive line-up. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are both returning, alongside Josh Brolin, Jemiane Clement and Emma Thompson. 

The plot sees Smith's Jay sent back in time to 1969, where he teams up with a young Kay (Brolin) to defeat Clement's evil alien, Yaz. 

Arterton will play a secretary in the 60s MiB headquarters, and Baldwin the head of MiB at that time, with Copley as a "fast talking, Yoda-type alien" . Thompson will be playing the head of MiB in the present. 

Men in Black 3 is directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and is due for release on 25 May 2012.

Are you excited at the prospect of seeing Smith and Jones back on screen together? Let us know below.

      Isn't Rip Torn in prison for trying to rob a bank? (Thinking it was his house or something?) I admit it'd miss him but not much can be done if that's true surely!

      so... did someone in the hollywoodland offices "do a baldrick" with delivering scripts and we're gonna get extra-terrestrials turning up in austin powers 4 (title wise the obvious twist Moonraker is a little coarse perhaps - those kind of jokes don't tend to go down too well)
