Chris Hemsworth & Tessa Thompson spill details about the Men in Black reboot

After three movies with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, Sony Pictures is looking to reinvigorate the MEN IN BLACK franchise with the upcoming spin-off/reboot which will star Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who have already proven their chemistry in THOR: RAGNAROK. While speaking with Variety on the AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR red-carpet, Hemsworth spilled a few details about the project, which he's hoping will be "epic and fun" as well as different from the previous sequels.

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.

Chris Hemsworth also seems as though he's looking forward to sharing the screen with Tessa Thompson again, saying, "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." Thompson also chimed in while speaking with Metro, confirming that the project is "super happening" and that the script is quite fantastic. "I really love those movies. I think they hold up. I watched them again recently. I really love them," Thompson said. "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." Sounds good to me, and it would be interesting to see how other countries deal with the various aliens arriving on Earth. Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT) are penning the script with F. Gary Gray (THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS) taking on directing duties.

The MEN IN BLACK reboot is set for a June 14, 2019 release.
