Liam Neeson looking likely to appear in new Men In Black movie…

May 25th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Over the last few weeks we’ve learned that Chris Hemsworth and Tess Thompson are set to lead a new Men In Black franchise beginner (here) and we also learned some of the movie’s plot points and that it will be directed by Fast & Furious’ F Gary Gary (here) and now, being Irish, we have a BIG bit of news…

Liam Neeson is in talks to star too! Yes!

It seems that the movie will take place in the UK’s branch of the MiB and Taken and Schindler’s List star Neeson will play the boss of that branch – similar to Rip Torn’s role in the original US set movies.

There’s not much else known about the movie at this point, although it looks like original stars Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are unlikely to appear in the movie. Shame.

Anyway, we’ll keep you posted as and when we get more details on the movie.

The Men In Black return on June 14th, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
