Report Will Smith Feuding With Men In Back Producers
Feuding between Will Smith on the one hand and director Barry Sonnenfeld and the producers on the other has resulted in production of Sony's Men in Black III being halted in New York, the New York Post 's "Page Six" gossip column reported today (Tuesday), citing unnamed sources. The newspaper said that Smith and the filmmakers are wrangling over the script. But a Sony spokesperson told the Post "The only reason production will begin in mid-November as opposed to late October is to take advantage of recent changes affecting New York State film incentives. Suggesting that a disagreement triggered the shift is complete fiction."
