‘Men In Black 3’ Delayed Again

Production of the sci-fi/comedy was supposed to resume after the Presidents Day holiday

Ongoing script issues have again delayed production of "Men In Black 3," TheWrap has confirmed.

The big-budget 3D film starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones was scheduled to resume filming after the Presidents Day weekend. Instead, shooting will begin again on March 28.

Filmmakers will work on the script until then.

The delay is not expected to affect the movie's May 12, 2012 release.

The Barry Sonnenfeld-directed movie has been on hiatus since December.

The film was supposed to begin shooting in October, but that date was postponed by about a month. Soon after, producers announced they would film the movie in two segments — the first would begin in November and be finished before Christmas and the second would begin in mid-February.

That second half has been postponed yet again.

The Los Angeles Times originally reported the delay.
