There's no word yet on plot, though THR reports that "sources say the new project is more of an ensemble piece than a two-hander and will be more global in scope". Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum are writing the script.

Thompson and Hemsworth attend the world premiere of Marvel Studios" "Thor: Ragnarok' at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on October 10, 2017. She's now shooting Creed II, and she'll be seen next in season 2 of Westworld season 2 (premiering April 22) and Boots Riley's Sundance hit Sorry to Bother You (in theaters July 6).

Directed by F. Gary Gray (Fast 8, Straight Outta Compton), the film is slated to have a June 14, 2019, release.

A few weeks back, we learned that Sony had scored Thor: Ragnarok's Chris Hemsworth to headline their soon-to-be-resurrected Men In Black franchise, which sounded great to us: over the past few years, Hemsworth has more than proven himself as a amusing, charismatic, compelling screen presence in big, tentpole movies.

Cue the catchy theme song: Asgard's finest are reportedly teaming up for a Men in Black spin-off, and there's not a Neuralyzer in the world that will keep me from seeing and remembering this movie.

At the time, we also learned that Sony was looking for "a black woman and an older man" to round out the film's leads. The news comes to us via em The Hollywood Reporter.

The original Men in Black, starring the winning combo of Smith and Jones, came out twenty years ago in the summer of 1997, and grossed $589 million worldwide. Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer.
