Emma Thompson is in talks to join the cast of Men In Black 3.

The actress is negotiating to take the lead role of Agent Oh, the head of the MIB operation, joining Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Most of the action in the third instalment of the extra-terrestrial comedy takes place in 1969, with Josh Brolin playing a young version of Tommy's character Agent Kay and Flight Of The Conchords' Jemaine Clement as the villain.

Principal photography for the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed 3D movie is due to begin in mid-November in New York, with a release set for 2012.

Emma, who recently reprised her role as Nanny McPhee in Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang, will next be seen in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows as Professor Sybill Trelawney.
