Bowie's In Space people. Bowie's in space. Well, ok not the 1970s David Bowie, but Jemaine Clement is. Yes, we all heard it was possible, but it is actually official: Jemaine Clement is going into space for Barry Sonnenfeld's sci-fi sequel Men in Black III.
No, he's not a man in black, but he will be the villain of the piece, Yaz. With the studio hitting fast-forward on its awesome cast list, May 2012 is looking a good date for your diaries. A 3-D date with Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and one half of Flight of the Conchords - the sexy half at that.
The third part of the trilogy will see Jay (Smith) and Kay (Lee Jones) travel back in time, bumping into the younger version of Kay (Brolin). It's a crazy idea, scripted by Etan Cohen, so crazy it just might work. Especially with Jemaine Clement on form as a bad guy.
So yes, there's no more Flight of the Conchords (although they are on tour), and Brett isn't tagging along for the galactic ride, but Jemaine in a major movie role? Ohh yeah, it's business time.
