Men In Black always had the potential for so many new stories and avenues to explore, so it is no wonder that they made another one starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. Although rather then keeping to the streets of New York, it seems this film will be visiting quite a few locations around the world.

This film was supposed to have a cross- over between the MIB and ‘22 Jump Street’, however the idea was scrapped as it seems it was too complicated to work out a deal that worked for both franchises.
Discussing Thompson’s character, producers Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes said “All screenplays usually go through many lives, and certainly in these movies you go through many plots and set pieces – all of those things can change. But the one thing that stayed through all the drafts we did was her character.”
