‘Men in Black’ reboot: Chris Hemsworth confirms script being changed, praises Tessa Thompson

While promoting Avengers: Infinity War on the purple carpet, Chris Hemsworth spoke to Variety a bit about the upcoming Men in Black project, sci-fi comedy film that revisits the government agency that deal with aliens.

“We’re developing the script now, we’re basically trying to put a lot of humor in to it like the previous ones. These are obviously some big big shoes to fill, so we’re working our butts off on it to make something pretty epic and fun. They’re trying to change up the locations, make it feel unique and different to the last ones. So you might even see some different countries, maybe. Some different cities than you’ve seen in the previous Men In Black movies.”

Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson has signed on to join Hemsworth in a new era of the MIB and he sounds thrilled.

“Oh she’s incredible, great sense of humor, great heart. A lot of fun, we really just had the best time on Thor, and having the opportunity to work together again was a no brainer.”

Similar to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park film series, Sony’s reboot is to feature new characters rather than Agents K and J, portrayed by original trilogy stars Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, respectively, and will build on the contemporary sci-fi world in which they operated.

Sources say the new project is more of an ensemble piece than a two-hander and will be more global in scope.

“Neither Smith nor Lee are expected to return, but the film builds on the contemporary sci-fi world they inhabited,” notes Deadline. “The MIB spinoff will expand on the original premise of a covert force policing the alien population hiding in plain sight on Earth with a new cast of agents.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are back as producers, while Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer.

The new film, nicknamed Men in Black IV is expected to arrive in theaters June 14, 2019.
