Tessa Thompson to Join Chris Hemsworth in 'Men in Black' Spinoff

Tessa Thompson is joining her Thor: Ragnarok co-star Chris Hemsworth in Sony's Men in Black reboot.

Fate of the Furious filmmaker F. Gary Gray is set to direct the movie, written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The studio has the film dated for June 14, 2019.

Akin to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park film series, Sony’s reboot is to feature new characters rather than Agents K and J, portrayed by original trilogy stars Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, respectively, and will build on the contemporary sci-fi world in which they operated.

Details are being kept hidden under a New York City ventilation tower, but sources say the new project is more of an ensemble piece than a two-hander and will be more global in scope.

Hemsworth's deal isn't closed but is expected to.

Fat Man on Batman podcast predicted this casting once Hemsworth was announced and that they were looking for a female to co-star.

"playing the role of Pawny, a funny, wise-cracking, sex-driven alien from a civilization that exists on a Chessboard. "

So voice only?

Way to go Rebecca. Two big casting stories for her. I agree, she should be in everything.

Is Chris Hemsworth going to play the objectified male piece of meat, while the girls do all the work? I feel that is a formula that really works.
