Thor: Ragnarok’s Tessa Thompson reunites with the Chris Hemsworth for Men in Black 4

March 21st, 2018 by Ciaran McElherron Comments

It’s looking like a Thor: Ragnarok reunion is in the offing for the newest (possibly least wanted) instalment of Men In Black.

As we have previously reported the most talented of the many Hemsworth brothers is binging his antipodean charm to the Men in Black *Shudder* universe and could be joined by Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson, who is currently in talks to do just as much work as Mr Hemsworth for less pay.

Plot details are scarce, as no doubt will be the actual plot when this piece of crap is released, but the film is set to take place in London (expect plenty of bad teeth jokes, Danny Dyeresque cockney stereotypes, and reference to Liz, Phil and Charles being aliens and at least five scenes involving a black taxi) and will centre around a new set of characters in a more ensemble piece than a duo like the first movie. If it isn’t broke why break it?

The as yet untitled Men in Black spin-off will not feature Will Smith (yeah!) or Tommy Lee Jones (Booooo) but will expand on the work of the original, this will be a different project from the aborted 21 Jump Street franchise mashup, MIB 23, which Jonah Hill admitted previously was “too complicated” in terms of the deals needed. That film remains in development hell and hopefully will stay there forever as it sounds like a complete sh#t show and a pure movie by the committee money making idea that will strip any good will that any one has for either franchise.

The new Men in Black film is set to be directed by F Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious) and is being written by Matt Holloway & Art Marcum (Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight).

There appears to be a lot of creative potential behind this project which makes me wonder why they are wasting their time on this unmitigated crap? *cough for the money $$$$$$$$*

The original Men in Black movie was released 20 years ago (TWENTY YEARS AGO?! Do you feel old yet?) and along with its subsequent sequels took in a load of cash despite being increasingly terrible and not having a funky Will Smith song as a theme.

Are you hyped for the new Men in Black? If so go, see a Doctor!
