London: The third instalment of the science fiction comedy series `Men In Black` starring Will Smith will have "retro aliens".

The movie will see the characters go back in time to the 60s, which gave legendary horror make-up and special effects artist Rick Baker the chance to create "a whole bunch of cool stuff", reported Contactmusic.

"When `Men In Black 3` came along and I heard about the time-travel element, I said, `Okay, it`s set in 2012, so we`ll have aliens that look like 2012 aliens in that part of the film.

"But when we go back to 1969, wouldn`t it be cool to have retro aliens? Big brains, bug eyes, stuff like that?

"I thought they should have a totally different, retro feel. And they agreed to it, thank God. So I got to make a whole bunch of cool stuff," Baker said.

`Men In Black 3` is set for a April 2012 release.
