Jemaine ClementIt's been confirmed that Flight Of The Conchords star Jemaine Clement will play the main villain Yaz (or Boris?) in the third Men In Black film, supposedly due for a May 2012 release.

Even though FOTC are on a highly successful world tour, Clement and his comedy partner Brett McKenzie declined to make a third series of the show with HBO. Since then his movie profile has grown with starring roles in Gentlemen Broncos (from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite) and the new Steve Carell comedy Dinner For Schmucks.

Even though FOTC are on a highly successful world tour, Clement and his comedy partner Brett McKenzie declined to make a third series of the show with HBO. Since then his movie profile has grown with starring roles in Gentlemen Broncos (from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite) and the new Steve Carell comedy Dinner For Schmucks.

The other news surrounding the production is that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are also on board, as is original director Barry Sonnenfeld. The script itself is provided by Ethan Cohen, who wrote Tropic Thunder, and Josh Brolin is in talks to play the younger Lee Jones as, apparently, much of the film's action will take place in 1969.

All well and good but does the world need a new MiB, seeing as the last one didn't exactly set the world alight? Well, my theory is that Hollywood execs are currently scraping around for any semi-successful series that needs a third part. Why? Well, as you've probably already guessed, the new film is going to be called Men In Black 3... D.
