MEN IN BLACK III Loses Alec Baldwin

The ongoing production delays for Men In Black III have caused another complication. Alec Baldwin has had to drop out of the film.

Baldwin told New York Magazine’s Vulture blog, “”I’m not doing that. I’m out of it; the schedule didn’t work out.”

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as the filming on the Barry Levinson-directed comedy should have already commenced as per the original schedule announced when the film took a planned hiatus at the end of last year. The hiatus was planned to allow for script revisions to the section of the film set in the 1960s, which Will Smith’s character will visit thanks to some time-traveling. Baldwin was set to play the head of the Men In Black agency in the past.

Currently David Koep is working on revisions for the section of film yet to be shot. Production is now set to begin in New York at the end of the month. And meanwhile, Sony continues to throw money at the project in such a way that I continue believe will preclude them from ever showing an appreciable profit.
