Josh Brolin is being considered for a role in Men in Black 3, The Los Angeles Times reports.
Although his exact part is a matter of discussion, the buzz in development circles gives rise to a handful of possibilities, the paper says.
Brolin could play a new government agent who takes the baton from Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K; he could play Agent K as a young man or he could play something else entirely.
Will Smith is expected to return in the new MIB as Agent J.
Sony is currently mulling a production start for the film in 2010. Based on a script by Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen, the film tentatively has Barry Sonnenfeld coming back to direct.
