Set to be directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious) and with a script penned by Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Art Marcum (Iron Man), the Men In Black spinoff will be set in the same world as the Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones trilogy, but won’t act as sequel or reboot.
Nothing much is known about the film –Thompson and Hemsworth’s character details are still kept under wraps– but according to Variety, who first reported the news, Neeson will be playing the head of the U.K. branch of the agency. In the “original films” Rip Torn portrayed the head of the American division.
Returning from the original pics are Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald as producers, while Steven Spielberg will act as the executive producer like he did in Men In Black 3.
