Right now Liam Neeson is in negotiations to join Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in Sony’s Men in Black spinoff. The upcoming project is being directed by F. Gary Gray. He is most notably recognized for his work on the film Fate of the Furious. The film is being written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The official release date as of now is June 14, 2019.
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who produced the original movies, are back as producers, while Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer. Hemsworth and Thompson are not playing the same alien-fighting and world-saving characters that we saw played by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the initial trilogy. The upcoming film will be set however in the same world and not in some parallel universe.
Plot details and the characters Hemsworth and Thompson will portray are being kept secret, but on the Neeson front, it is known that he will play the head of the Men in Black organization in London, where the story begins. ( The Hollywood Reporter )
