Okay, technically this is not a reboot of the movies saga. This is more like a spin-off, so the events in Men in Black International (2019) could happen at the same time that the storylines happening in the original movies trilogy directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and starred by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. So we will have to wait what the filmmakers have to offer here.
Men in Black International (2019) (stylized as MIB: International) is loosely based on the series of comics The Men in Black created by Lowell Cunningham. This time, the center of the action is happening in Europe, where a London-based team of Men in Black (MIB) secret agents become involved in a murder mystery that sends them traveling the globe. Chris Hemsworth (Thor (2011), The Cabin in the Woods (2012)) is Agent H, Tessa Thompson (Annihilation (2018), Creed (2015)) is Agent M, Liam Neeson (Darkman (1990), Taken (2008)) is the head of the UK branch of MIB and Emma Thompson (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)) is Agent O, the head of the US branch of MIB, a role she is reprising from the previous entry in the saga Men in Black 3 (2012).
With the change of the main stars also came a change of director. F. Gary Gray, specialized with action thrillers like The Negotiator (1998), A Man Apart (2003) and The Italian Job (2003), was behind the cameras in Men in Black International (2019). Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the tandem who also wrote Punisher: War Zone (2008), Iron Man (2008) and Transformers: The Last Knight (2017), were in charge of the screenplay.
Men in Black International (2019) is currently in post-production. It is estimated that the movie won’t hit theaters until June next year, but Sony Pictures has recently released its official trailer. Watch it here:
