The Men in Black are shaping up.

It is already 21 years since Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones donned black suits and sunglasses to bring us the first Men in Black film in 1997 (feel old yet?). Two more films followed in the sci-fi franchise in which Agents J and K hunt down aliens on earth.

As with most things in 2018, Sony Pictures announced that it would be making a spin-off of the series which is set to be helmed by Fate of the Furious director, F. Gary Gray. It was now announced that Kumail Nanjiani of The Big Sick and Rafe Spall from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will join the cast. The all-star cast already includes Liam Neeson, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson.

The film — which does not yet have a title — is expected to be released on the 14th of June 2019, but we’re already pressing our suits in anticipation.
