From The Hollywood Reporter, the Men in Black franchise is looking to add some Irish acting chops via Liam Neeson. All we know of the character Neeson is in negotiations – ie “show me the green” – to play is that he’s the head of the Men in Black London unit.
A Certain Set Of Skills
Liam Neeson will join Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, neither of whose characters are a recasting/reimagining of Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones Agents J and K, respectively.
An immediate step in the right direction. Both Hemsworth and Thompson were enjoyable in Thor: Ragnarok. Helmsworth in particular showed some great comedic timing, as he did in Ghostbusters.
I thought the third film in the franchise was ok at best, with Josh “Six Degrees Of Marvel” Brolin’s turn as a young Agent K/Tommy Lee Jones being the highlight.
The spin off — for lack of an even more vague description — is being produced by the same powers responsible for the first three, including Steven Spielberg as Executive Producer.
I really wish the latter still meant something.
Directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, more illegals are set cross dimensions June 14, 2019.
