Kumail Nanjiani and Rafe Spall are the latest actors to join Sony’s new Men in Black, according to The Wrap.
The films stars Tessa Thompson as a new member of the agency assigned to its London division. She is partnered with a more seasoned agent played by Chris Hemsworth. It is unclear if Nanjiani and Spall will play agents or align themselves with the new alien menace threatening the Earth.
Based on the short-lived comic book by Lowell Cunningham with Sandy Carruthers about a shadowy government agency tasked with observing and policing alien visitors, the film is said to recognize the previous Men in Black film series, led by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, while establishing its own fresh course. Iron Man‘s Art Marcum and Matt Holloway wrote the new take for director F. Gary Gray.
The film is expected for release on June 14th, 2019.
