Men In Black III is being directed and co-produced by Primetime Emmy Award winning Barry Sonnenfeld, who has helmed such films as Get Shorty, Wild Wild West, and of course the first two installments of Men In Black. Steven Spielberg is also on board as co-producer with Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald of the Los Angeles based Parkes/MacDonald Productions.

Ethan Cohen has penned the script, and rumors of him being replaced by David Koepp were untrue, although Koepp did some brief work on the script. Cohen's writing credits include Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and Tropic Thunder.

The principal actor casting director is auditioning actresses in their 20's to play a younger version of Emma Thompson. The character has a good sense of humor, is alluring, and is very secure with her level of intelligence.
