Liam Neeson is set to join Sony’s Men in Black reboot.
F. Gary Gray (Fate of the Furious) is set to helm the film, with Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum penning the screenplay. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing once again, with Steven Spielberg executive producing.
The new movie will reportedly be an ensemble piece instead of a buddy cop scenario as in the original series starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
The Men in Black reboot is set to arrive in theaters on May 17, 2019.
