Hemsworth has been in negotiations for a role for a few weeks now, but Thompson has just hopped onboard with the pair playing two of the three leads in the new film which is expected to be both more of an ensemble and with a bigger global scope.
F. Gary Gray (“The Fate of the Furious”) is set to direct the movie written by “Iron Man” screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The project isn’t a reboot but a continuation set in the same world but with all new characters (ala “Jurassic World”).
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing and Steven Spielberg is executive producing. “Men in Black 4” is set for a June 14th 2019 release.
