Men in Black III has a Writer

Sony Insider announced that David Koepp, the writer behind Spider-Man, Jurassic Park, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, has been pegged to write the a draft of script for the upcoming 3d movie. Etan Cohen wrote the original script, so how much he changes and how much he’ll keep the same remains up in the air at this moment.

In addition to this news, a short 3d teaser trailer hosted by Will Smith was also released.

Men in Black III is set to release May 25, 2012. It will be directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, executive produced by Steven Spielberg, and will star Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, and Jemaine Clement.

The Pulse: I’m not sure about Koepp writing a draft. Given his track record, he seems rather hit or miss (although Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may have had more to do with Lucas than him) (okay, I liked Crystal Skull–sue me). Probably it’s too early to really make any kind of predictions on its quality, but I’m not too hopeful about this installment of the franchise.
