Men in Black was an awesome franchise with Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, and now, a
spin-off movie is arriving. Here is everything you need to know about this film.
This time around, we are not going to have Agent J, and Agent K as the two main characters and
the agents are going to be more modern and kind of a new generation of law enforcers. Matt
Holloway and Art Marcum are going to write the script for the new film. These two writers
worked on Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight and the notorious 2008 Marvel film
Punisher: War Zone. The director will be F. Gary Gray, most famous for the last film in the Fast
and Furious saga and Straight Outta Compton.
The original franchise consists of three parts, each one with its own tone, but all of them of high
quality. These films became popular around the world, which is why the new spin-off will be a
Men in Black
In the original movies, we had a chance to watch Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones who were
one of the biggest reasons Men in Black became so popular in the first place. The first film came
out in the summer of 1997, and the chemistry of the two actors was instantly recognizable. They
played agents of a space-gadget-armed secret government organization, and they were in charge
of overseeing the assimilation and arrival of aliens into the United States. Their biggest challenge
was to keep that a secret from the public.
Men in Black II
The next movie came out in 2002, and it was just as good as the first one. Once again, the two
actors played their roles fantastically.
Men in Black III
For the next installment, we had to wait for ten years. Instead of Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin
played a younger version of his character.
Together, the three films grossed $1.655 billion, which is a reason enough to come up with the
spin-off. Speaking of it, don’t expect any of the three actors mentioned here to reprise their roles.
So, who is going to star in Men in Black 4? One of the main roles will go to Chris Hemsworth.
According to Variety, Liam Neeson is going to join the cast, and he will be the head of the UK
branch. Tessa Thompson, who appeared in Thor: Ragnarok, Annihilation and Creed, will also be
on the set, THR reports. They will be joined by Kumail Nanjiani as That Hashtag Show
announces and he will play an interesting character called Pawny, an “alien from a civilization
that exists on a chessboard.
Steven Spielberg will be a part of the crew, which is promising for the film and he will work
together with Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald as well as Sony’s David Beaubaire who
will be producers of the new movie.
It is too early to discuss the story of the spin-off and the details about it are scarce. At this point,
we know that with the new characters, the story is going to be expanded globally. However, most
of the story will be filmed in London according to various reports, but some of the action scenes
are going to be shot at other locations around the world.
Men in Black 4 Release Date
Men in Black 4 is scheduled for June 14, 2019.
