My God, if ever there was such magical casting, I know not when!
The new Men In Black film is off to a great start, cast-wise, with Chris Hemsworth and Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson (also from Westworld) starring as our two new agents at MIB London.
Now, The Wrap reports these MIB agents have a very seasoned boss — especially if one of them should be taken – Mr. Liam Neeson! Neeson is currently in talks to appear as the head of the Men in Black organization in London, where the film will begin.

The latest MIB will not include Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones), instead starring Hemsworth and Thompson as two new agents. These two must traverse the globe to solve a murder mystery with intergalactic stakes. That’s right, they actually leave the tri-state area this time… In fact, they don’t even start there! The film is being compared to Jurassic World in that it takes the franchise in a newer, broader direction while still paying homage to the previous films and characters.
The film will be directed by F Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious) from a script from Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. Steven Spielberg continues to executive produce, of course.
Get ready for some Liam Neeson in your MIB, because this film hits theaters on June 14, 2019.
