We’ve been hearing a lot of talk from behind the scenes of Sony’s upcoming sequel Men in Black III. The unconventional shooting schedule has a lot of people questioning whether or not everything is up to code with the production. The sequel began shooting this week in New York City, but will break for two months after the holidays. Not a few weeks, a few months! Either way, some set photos have surfaced online and they feature a couple of its stars, Oscar winner Emma Thompson and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Take a look…

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will return to the franchise for round three and they’ll get a little help from a few new faces. The new castmembers include Thompson, Scherzinger, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement, and Alec Baldwin. The story is said to center on Agent J (Smith) going back in time to 1969 to stop a villain. While there he’ll get some help from Young Agent K (Brolin) and they’ll join forces to defeat Yaz, the bad guy played by Clement.

Men in Black III will be directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2012.
