Two 007 connections to Men in Black III

Men in Black III debuted in the U.S. on May 25. One James Bond connection had been publicized — Skyfall’s teaser trailer would be attached, making MIB III the first opportunity to see it on the big screen after an online debut on May 21.

There’s another 007 connection of note. Men in Black III’s second unit director and stunt arranger is Simon Crane, who was second unit director for sequences in Panama on Quantum of Solace (Dan Bradley was the primary second unit director). Crane also was a stunt performer on 007 films inclujding The World Is Not Enough, GoldenEye and The Living Daylights. Crane’s on-screen credit is relatively early in the end titles of Men in Black III.

  1. I think it strange to connect 007 with Men in Black. The connections mentioned here are coincidental. More interesting I think are 007’s influence/connection on other secret agent novels and movies. For example, many others use Fleming’s licence to kill idea, although I was recently surprised to read that actually Desmond Cory’s Fedora came up with it first, Fedora predating Bond by 2 years or so.
