"Men in Black 4" - a film that will continue the famous fantastic franchise - will be released in 2019. Leading actors of the original trilogy - Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, who played agents Jay and Kay - do not participate in the upcoming film project. But the cast of the quadriquel will be no less impressive.
The god of thunder, the ever-drunk Valkyrie and the tireless special agent ready to do anything for the sake of his family will appear in the new picture. Of course, we are talking about the stars of "Thor 3" Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, as well as the cinema veteran Liam Neeson, shining in cool action movies like "Hostage" and "Air Marshal". Under the supervision of this trinity, Mother Earth will most certainly be completely safe!
New cinema - new people
The fact that Sony Pictures began to develop the fourth "People in Black", it was announced in the spring of 2013.The three previous parts of the film series told about the brave agents who informally work for the government and secretly regulate the activities of aliens on Earth. The films were released in the 1997th, 2002th and 2012th years. In total, the films, the first of which made Will Smith an international superstar, collected more than $ 1.6 billion in the world box office. So, the launch of a quadriquel into production was only a matter of time.
Initially it was assumed that the continuation scenario would be written by Oren Uzil, whose assets, among others, are “Macho and Botan 2” and “Cloverfield Paradox”. However, in the end, other people took up the work on the script. It was also rumored that the studio would not mind returning to the fourth episode of Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and the director of all past “People” Barry Sonnenfeld. But when the project was finally given the green light, the 2017 was standing outside. Smith had a very tight schedule, and Sonnenfeld worked with might and main on the television series "Lemony Snicket: 33 fatalities." So, the director and performers of the main roles in any case would have to change.
In 2015, when People in Black 4 were only at the concept development stage, the co-producer of the future movie Lori MacDonald reported a curious detail.In the plot as one of the main actors, they decided to introduce a female agent, having previously diluted the purely male composition of the secret agency. In addition, it was announced that the tape will be the beginning of a new trilogy that will update the universe of special agents who control the stay of aliens on our planet.
The first news from the casting of a potential hit began to arrive in February 2018. And they turned out to be more than pleasant - the actors in the movie are selected wonderful. The main male role was offered to the charming Australian Chris Hemsworth, known to the whole world in the image of the God of the Thunderer. In the third "Torah" (and a year earlier - in the restart of "Ghostbusters"), the actor showed a bright comedic talent and self-irony. And since “Men in Black” is not only a fantastic, but also comedic film project, Hemsworth’s irony will only benefit.
The very female agent Laurie MacDonald was talking about will be played by charming Tessa Thompson. She looked great in tandem with Hemsworth in Torah 3 and won the sympathy of viewers and critics. Before “Torah”, Tessa could be seen in the boxing drama “Creed: The Legacy of Rocky” and the series “The World of the Wild West”.
Awesome cast replenishment
In May-2018, Liam Neeson joined the young movie stars of the fourth "People". Since the end of the 2000s, a brilliant drama artist, an Oscar nominee and a Volpie Cup winner at the Venice Film Festival for the best male role is more often removed in action projects than in serious film bands. But in recent years, he began to dilute participation in dashing action films and thrillers by appearing in works of other genres.
By the way, there are practically no comedic or near-comic works in the filmography of Liam. His cine-like image of the ever-severe and serious guy is constantly played up in various TV shows. Participation in the "People" will be for Neeson a great opportunity to demonstrate their true Irish sense of humor. He will play the head of the British Bureau of the top-secret organization that controls aliens living on Earth.
