Just last year, Sony announced its plans for a 'Men in Black' spin-off that was set to star Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. Now, with thanks to Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, the upcoming film has a poster. Protagonist, Hemsworth recently spoke about the project, hinting there could be a new signing.
The 'Avengers: Infinity War' actor spoke about his upcoming project at the MCU film premiere. "We're developing the script now. We're basically trying to put a lot of humour in to it like the previous ones... so we're working our butts off on it to make something pretty epic and fun".
As well as the humour, Hemsworth revealed the spin-off will be set in a new location. "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, maybe. Some different cities than you've seen in the previous 'Men In Black' movies".
In other news, Variety have reported that Liam Neeson is in talks to join the cast as the head of the London branch of MiB. F. Gary Gray is directing the spin-off and it's set for release around May/June next year.
