As the Men in Black reboot slowly reaches the end of pre-production, both people behind and in front of the camera are set to be a part of the movie. Not only has the production secured its director in the form of The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray, it has also brought on the likes of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson to play new characters for the series. It turns out that they may not be the only recognizable actors to play new characters since Liam Neeson is currently in talks to star alongside them.
Provided that he lands the role, Neeson will be playing the head of the London division of the Men in Black organization. Like the characters that Hemsworth and Thompson will be playing, Neeson’s role is not identifiable by name yet. Therefore, we shall have to wait to find out the names of these characters.
In addition, not much is known about the film’s plot at the moment. It has been confirmed that it will expand the universe seen in the previous three movies by focusing a large portion of it in the aforementioned London division of the secret organization. However, it is not clear whether it will leave out the iconic characters of Agents K and J. Given the history of movie reboots, it is likely that they will not be present in this particular outing.
