The more we learn about this ‘Men in Black‘ spinoff, the more we like it. At first, we were a little disappointed that neither Will Smith nor Tommy Lee Jones would return, but we’re starting to get over that disappointment.
According to multiple reports, Tessa Thompson is joining her Thor: Ragnarok co-star Chris Hemsworth in Sony’s upcoming Men in Black reboot.
This is pretty huge news because they were both great in Thor and Hemsworth was one of the best parts of the recent Ghostbusters reboot, so we know his comedy game is strong.
‘Fate of the Furious‘ director F. Gary Gray is set to direct this reboot, which will feature brand new characters, similar to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park franchise. You still keep the world that has already been created, but you also start over with new characters, so people aren’t directly comparing the two.
Currently, the studio has a release date of June 14, 2019, but that will likely change. Big movies like this often get delayed.
“Details are being kept hidden under a New York City ventilation tower, but sources say the new project is more of an ensemble piece than a two-hander and will be more global in scope.”
We will keep you posted.
