Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson share photo from the set of Men in Black
The new Men in Black spinoff is currently deep into production, and stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson have shared a set photo via Instagram teasing their yet-undisclosed characters. All that’s missing is the 1997 tagline: “Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe.” Either that, or something relating to a Calvin Klein ad, because Hemsworth and Thompson are two very good looking people. Check out the full post below!
Joining the Thor Ragnarok co-stars is a large ensemble that features Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible Fallout), Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Howards End), Liam Neeson (Taken series), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick) and Rafe Spall (The Big Short, Life of Pi). Production is already underway on the new film (see more set photos here).
The untitled Men in Black spinoff will not feature Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones, but it will expand on the world of the original trilogy. This will be a different project from the aborted 21 Jump Street franchise mashup, MIB 23, which Jonah Hill admitted previously was “too complicated” in terms of the deals needed. That film remains in development, however.
The Men in Black spinoff film is set to be directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious) and is been written by Matt Holloway & Art Marcum (Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight). Original franchise producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are back along with executive producer Steven Spielberg. Production is underway on the film in London.
Look for the new Men in Black movie to arrive in theaters on June 14, 2019.
