The reboot of ‘Men in Black’ series titled ‘Men in Black International’ will feature Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in the lead.

The two will reunite on the big screen after their stint together in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. In the MIB film, they will play Agent H and Agent M respectively, the alien-fighting and world-saving characters portrayed by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the original film trilogy.

See Chris’s recent social media update on the film: "That's a wrap on MIB for me!! From London to Morocco to Italy and NYC. Thank you to all the fantastic cast and crew who took part on this epic journey and our director F.Gary Gray, cheers for the fun times, big laughs and solid memories.”

The cast also includes Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Liam Neeson, Rebecca Ferguson and Hemsworth's older brother Liam. 

Liam will play the head of the Men in Black organisation based in London, where the story begins.

The film will have Walter F Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who produced the original movies, return as producers, while Steven Spielberg is coming back to executive produce.

Directed by F Gary Gray, the film is set to hit the theatres on June 14 next year.
