This Men in Black thing is one of those few “reboot” times where we’re honestly curious to see what the end result is. Already sporting a starring cast of Chris Hemsworth AND Tessa Thompson, and they’ve just added three more big names to the flick.

According to The Hollywood ReporterLiam Neeson and Oscar-nominated Kumail Nanjiani have signed on to join the MiB franchise, and Dame Emma Thompson is returning as Agent O, the chief of the Men in Black organization.

This, of course, makes the film sound more like a continuation of the previous movies rather than a true reboot, but that’s what Sony is calling it, so we will too.

F. Gary Gray (Fate of the Furious) is directing, and Matt Holloway and Art Marcum (Iron Man) wrote the most recent draft of the script.

As of right now, the film has a “set” release date of June 14th, 2019.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.



Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 



Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 



Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
