Is Josh Brolin the New Man in Black?

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Columbia Pictures is considering bringing on Josh Brolin for Men in Black 3.

Who he will play is not known:

He could play a new single-monikered government agent, with Tommy Lee Jones’ Agent K passing the baton to Brolin’s character. Or he could play Agent K as a young man. Or something else entirely.

Will Smith is expected to return for the third installment, written by Etan Cohen, but will Jones? Barry Sonnenfeld may also come back to direct.

Brolin’s upcoming projects include Jonah Hex and Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.
