Budget For Men In Black 3 Hits The $215 Million Mark

Script problems, movie star behavior, and a terrible shooting schedule all seem to be contributing factors in making the latest Men In Black film cost millions of dollars more than the previous movie.


Men In Black 3 has had its fair share of problems from supposed script problems to Will Smiths gigantic bus that was irritating New Yorkers. More problems seemed to have surfaced recently mentioning that Smith has been displaying some extreme star behavior. This includes having sets torn down and rebuilt to better suit his style of acting.



Reports The Wrap:

Smith also had a set rebuilt in order to accommodate an improvised scene he filmed, according to two people involved in the production. The scene involved a telephone call between Smith’s character, Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones’s character, Agent K. Some time after Jones filmed his portion of the call, it was Smith’s turn. But Smith improvised quite a bit, and his part of the conversation no longer matched Jones’s. Smith told producers he wanted to see Jones on camera responding to the new material -- a request that required the crew to rebuild the set, or at least a few walls of it -- so Jones could film there again.

On another occasion, early in the filming, Smith had the crew tear down a nearly completed set at Kaufman Astoria Studios because it "wasn't right," a person with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.


With all the problems that are occurring it looks like it is going to take its toll on Sony's wallet. Sources are saying that the budget for the film has ballooned all the way up to $215 Million, that is about $75 million more than what it took to make Men In Black 2. The source is also saying that the budget is after tax rebates that New York was offering.

Men In Black 3 Stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Rip Torn, and Jemaine Clement and will be released on May 25, 2012.
