The budget for “Men in Black 3” could blow out to as much as $215 million dollars, because of Will Smith’s massive demands and delays in filming.
The Wrap says the star has been making incredibly expensive requests, including asking for a couple of sets to be torn down and rebuilt to suit his ideas of what was “right” for the film.
Another time he reportedly needed a set to be changed because he improvised a phone call with Tommy Lee Jones’ character ‘Agent K’, and deviated from the script so much the set no longer fit the scene.
There’s been a number of problems with the production of this film- starting with his massive trailer needing to be moved from a New York City street because it was too big; and ending with delays in shooting and problems re-working the script.
Everyone official seems to be keeping mum on this speculation, but who knows. $215 million is a lot to spend on re-booting the “Men in Black” franchise, even though the first two did bring in some pretty spectacular box office cash.
