After taking a quick break from shooting blockbuster films to go nude in the indie abduction-thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed, British actress Gemma Arterton is ready to return to tent-pole movie-making. The 24-year-old up-and-comer is said to be in negotiations to star in director Barry Sonnenfeld’s soon-to-start-shooting Men in Black 3-D.
Arterton is reportedly up for the part of a 1960’s MIB secretary serving under the organization’s head (to possibly be played by Alec Baldwin). Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reprise their roles as Agent Jay and Agent Kay. Josh Brolin and Emma Thompson costar.
Arterton first caught moviegoers attention as James Bond’s doomed love interest Strawberry Fields in 2008’s Quantum of Solace. Since then she’s played female leads in Warner Bros. remake of Clash of the Titans and in Michael Bay’s epic video game adaptation Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
