Chris Hemsworth & Tessa Thompson talk about the upcoming Men in Black reboot

Director F. Gary Gray is looking to reboot the once enormously popular MEN IN BLACK franchise but this time it looks like Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson (THOR: RAGNAROK) will be stepping into the suits and ray bans instead of the series' old go-to's Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.

If you're still reading this then I guess you're still interested in the reboot so you might be interested to hear that Hemsworth and Thompson were recently out and about and dropped some new details on the upcoming film.

Chris Hemsworth told Variety:

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 as well. So I think you might even see some different countries, possibily. Some different cities than you’ve seen in the previous Men In Black movies.

Tessa Thompson told Metro:

We’re doing it. It is super happening. Chris Hemsworth and myself are back at them, F. Gary Gray is directing. It is a really fun fantastic script. I really love those movies. I think they hold up. I watched them again recently. I really love them. And it is taking the ‘Men In Black’ franchise and setting it now and making it global in scope. It is like an international team so you get to see sort of agents across the globe.

Are you excited about this reboot even if Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are sitting it out? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!
