As he proved in films like Vacation and Ghostbusters, Chris Hemsworth isn’t just a pretty face and shredded abs, he’s also a pretty funny dude. Mainstream audiences had a peak of this talent when last year’s Thor: Ragnarok hit theaters, and now it looks like Hemsworth is looking to take that skill to another franchise.
According to THR, the actor is in early negotiations to star in the reboot of the action-comedy film, Men in Black. On board to helm the film is Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray, and with a script from Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, this reboot may stand a chance.
Men in Black is a franchise Sony has been trying to breathe new life back into ever since 2012’s Men in Black III hit theaters. Ideas circled the studio for quite some time, and for a while, it seemed that we’d be getting the fun-sounding MIB 23, which would serve as a crossover between Men in Black and 21 Jump Street.
In the time since then, they’ve abandoned the crossover idea and reverted back to the full-on Men in Black one, which makes sense, given how much money those three movies made together (Around $1.5B). In the right hands, it has the potential to make a decent amount of coin for them.
While the film is still far from getting made, this is one more step in the right direction, should Hemsworth sign on. Would you like to see a Chris Hemsworth-starring Men in Black film? let us know your thoughts down below!
