Director F. Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious) is really ramping up an awesome cast for Sony Picture's new Men in Black film! We previously learned that Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson were teaming back up for the film and now, according to Variety, Liam Neeson is in talks to join them!
According to the report, Neeson will play the head of the U.K. branch of the agency, who was originally played by Rip Torn in the original films. This would be a fun role for Neeson to take on and there's no doubt that he'll be great in the film.
We still don't know much about the plot of the film, but we do know that it will not be a reboot. This will be set in the same universe as the original films. There's also a teaser poster for the film that we shared yesterday that you can see here.
Matt Holloway and Art Marcum are writing the script and the movie will be released on May 17, 2019. Are you excited to hear that Liam Neeson is joining the film?
