For the past few years, Sony Pictures has been enviously eyeing the massive franchises other studios have built, to the point they were so keen for Spider-man to properly work out for them, they handed the reigns to Disney-controlled Marvel to help get it right. Their plan to rejuvenate Ghostbusters didn’t quite work out as they’d hoped, but now they’re panning to put one of the stars of that movie in a reboot of the Men In Black franchise.
Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, is in early talks to star in the movie, acording to THR. He would lead a brand new cast (Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith won’t be returning), with the other main character being a female of color and an older man, who would go on a worldwide adventure based in the undercover alien world of MiB.
There will be some behind-the-scenes continuity with the trilogy of movies that grossed over $1.5 billion, as Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will once more produce, with Steven Spielberg taking executive producer duties again. F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate Of The Furious) is in talks to direct the movie, from a script by Iron Man’s Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. It should be in cinemas June 2019.
