New Men in Black III Set Photos & Details

The Brooklyn Paper reports that the Men in Black III production filmed at the Relish diner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Wednesday night. The site says the diner has been closed since July.

Will Smith and Josh Brolin were there, while the funny looking light-wearing bike riders from the previous films were on set as well. The site added that next month, the production will film for a few days at the Grashorn Building on Coney Island.

Co-starring Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, Emma Thompson, Nicole Scherzinger, Alice Eve and Michael Stuhlbarg, the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed film is scheduled for a release on May 25, 2012.

Men In Black III Brings Coney Island Back To the '60s

Last year there was a casting call for Men In Black III, where a call out specified "people that are less than 4’10 and more than 6’5 in height to play aliens. Men and women to play late 1960s New Yorkers." Another last month noted they were still looking for "1969 New Yorkers (hippies, beatnik poets, 60s celebrity look-a-likes, bikers, models, etc)" and explained "most scenes take place in 1969 and men and women must be willing to get a hair cut and to work around smoke."

This week the production is shooting on Surf Avenue in Coney Island, and a ton of extras—including Lola Star—have been called in for a boardwalk scene. Star has been transmitting photos from the "past" via Twitter all day, and you can check out a few above. Apparently Smith was about to film a chase scene down the boardwalk just before one of them was taken.

'MIB3' is groovy on Greene

The "Men in Black III" movie is turning a Greene Street loft into a back-to-the-sixties party palace. The upcoming flick, starring Will Smith, Alice Eve and Josh Brolin as the young Tommy Lee Jones character, Agent K, has rented the 9,000 square-foot second floor of 38 Greene St., where it intends to film a crucial scene.

The space has 20 wrap-around windows on Greene and Grand streets.

"The party is going to have an Andy Warhol theme, and they got the most charming loft in SoHo," said building owner David Zar, who was told he could dress up and be an extra in the film if only the busy real estate owner had time to stand around for hours.

"MIB 3" is paying "quadruple" the normal rent, which Zar is splitting with another film industry tenant that is now waiting to move into the loft once filming is over.

The tenant-in-waiting, Logan Media, is a production and post-production facility that is now a block away at 155 Wooster St. The asking rent for its seven-year lease with options was $43 a square foot, so you can imagine what "MIB3" is paying.

Logan was repped by Glenn Teyf, who is now with Gideon Group, while Zar did the work for his own building.

"MIB3" has also rented several other Zar-owned spaces in the area to handle hair, makeup and places for those extras to hang out when they are not actually in front of the cameras.
