‘Men in Black’ Spin-Off Adds Tessa Thompson for a ‘Thor’ Reunion


The Men In Black reboot just got a whole lot more fun! It was just announced today that Tessa Thompson has joined the cast, joining her Thor: Ragnarok co-star Chris Hemsworth, and giving us all the on-screen reunion we didn’t even know we needed!

While the plot is very much under wraps, we do know that Sony is certainly putting a new spin on the original 1997 Men In Black, which starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, by featuring all new characters and acting more as an ensemble piece. Fear not though, it will still be taking place in the contemporary sci-fi world of the original. Steven Spielberg will be returning as executive producer and Fate of the Furious’ F. Gary Gray will be directing. There’s also another Marvel tie-in as Iron-Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum will be penning the script.
