Emma Thompson Joins ‘Men in Black’ Spin-Off, Playing Her Character from Part 3

Posted on Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 by Ben Pearson

Emma Thompson better start cranking some AC/DC tunes, because she’s back in black.

The Oscar-winning actress and screenwriter is donning a black suit yet again to star in Sony’s Men in Black spin-off, reprising her role of Agent 0 from 2012’s Men in Black 3. Read more about the Emma Thompson Men in Black spin-off role below.

Thompson, a dual threat who won Oscars for acting in Howards End and writing for Sense and Sensibility, will once again play Agent O, the chief of the secret Men in Black organization. Her character took over that role from Zed (Rip Torn), the MiB’s leader in both Men in Black and Men in Black 2 who died in the third entry. Like Torn and series star Tommy Lee Jones, Thompson is a welcome addition to any cast and manages to pull off this franchise’s necessary combination of straight-faced silliness with utter glee. I mean, just watch what she does in this clip:

This will be the second time Thompson has returned to play the same character in a popular film franchise; she previously played Professor Sybil Trelawney in the Harry Potter movies.

This spin-off is intended to relaunch the sci-fi franchise. F. Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious, The Italian Job) is directing. Emma won’t be the only Thompson on set: Tessa Thompson (Annihilation, Westworld) is headlining along with her Thor: Ragnarok co-star Chris Hemsworth. The cast is already shaping up very well: in addition to those three, the production has already secured the talents of Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani, and Rafe Spall.

The script, by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway & Art Marcum, is said to expand the franchise to a more global scale. The story will reportedly not feature the beloved Agents J and K played by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the original films (though I wouldn’t rule out a quick cameo), but will reportedly be more of an ensemble piece about the secretive government agency that defends Earth from hostile aliens and helps friendly aliens settle into human society. Neeson will play the head of the Men in Black’s London division, where the story is said to begin. Perhaps he’ll share the screen with Thompson somehow, marking a nice Love Actually reunion between those two performers.

The untitled Men in Black spin-off/reboot will arrive in theaters on June 14, 2019.

Tessa Thompson Joins Chris Hemsworth in ‘Men in Black’ Spinoff

  • 21 March 2018

  • Variety – Film News

Following the success of “Thor: Ragnarok,” Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are looking to reteam on another big movie.

Thompson is in talks to join Hemsworth in Sony’s “Men in Black spinoff, sources tell Variety. F. Gary Gray, who previously helmed “Straight Outta Compton” and “The Fate of the Furious,” is on board to direct.

The studio fast-tracked the project earlier this fall, setting Matt Holloway and Art Marcum to pen the script and dating a May 17, 2019, release.

The original movie followed Smith and Jones, who played agents of a secret organization, known as the Men in Black, and protected Earth from intergalactic bad guys. The first film was huge hit and produced two more sequels.

Sony had originally planned on combining the “Men in Black” and “21 Jump Street” franchises, but have since tabled that idea.

Ron Howard’s ‘Star Wars’: We Debate the New Choice For Lucasfilm’s Han Solo Movie

  • 22 June 2017
  • by Eric Kohn, Zack Sharf, Kate Erbland, Chris O’Falt and Anne Thompson
  • Indiewire

With the news that Ron Howard is taking over the production of Lucasfilm’s young Han Solo movie, the IndieWire team traded emails about the shift.

Anne Thompson: Lucasfilm czar Kathleen Kennedy is siding with the writer — long-time “Star Wars” consigliere Lawrence Kasdan —over a carefully-selected director team with a strong voice. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, if you think about it, have become accustomed to running their own show. They have a little production studio humming along at Bricksburg in Hollywood, born from the blockbuster “The Lego Movie,” and they’re used to being in charge. They are stars. And they know it.

Whatever went wrong here, it’s clear who Lord and Miller are, what they can do. For one thing they are comedy directors — “21 Jump Street,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “The Lego Movie” — not to mention the upcoming “Lego Ninjago Movie,” “America: The Motion Picture,” “Mib 23,” the Untitled Spider-Man Project, and a gaggle of TV series. They’re running their own factory parallel to the Lucasfilm universe and ran headlong into the juggernaut that is “Star Wars.” Kennedy’s purpose is to stay on course — as Kevin Feige does with Marvel — and keep the “Star Wars” universe humming and intact as it spins into many orbits. She can take responsibility for miscasting in this case, because Lord and Miller are who they are and, once hired, should be able to do what they do.

When less established indie hire Gareth Edwards went off track on “Rogue One,” he had to step aside as “Bourne” franchise writer-director Tony Gilroy helped to reshoot and reorganize the final product. The trick with Jj Abrams or Rian Johnson or Colin Trevorrow is selecting directors who are team players capable of keeping the larger goals in mind, and not drawing outside the lines. That, apparently, Lord and Miller did not do—running with a different interpretation of Han Solo than Kasdan. In this case, a reinvention of the Han Solo character for a new generation was not in the cards. Of course Ron Howard is a superb competent director (“Apollo 13,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “Rush”) who can execute with the best of them. He knows what to do and will do it well. But like Edgar Wright’s “Ant Man,” I suspect the movie we will never see was more exciting and unexpected than the one that will hit global screens in 2018.

Kate Erbland: There’s no question that after the massive upheaval of Lord and Miller leaving the project with just a few weeks left to go in principal photography, Lucasfilm is desperate for anything resembling stability. Howard is a good guy for that, a seasoned professional with plenty of blockbuster experience and two Oscars to boot, and he’ll likely be able to soothe frazzled nerves and get the mechanics of the filmmaking process running smoothly in no time. That’s the draw here: He’s a safe choice, and what was so exciting about the initial hiring of Lord and Miller was that they weren’t.

Howard will surely make a perfectly serviceable feature, delivered on time and with a minimum of drama, but the fallout from this will always eclipse that final product. Not just in terms of the Han Solo movie we’ll never see — though that stings, too — but because it shows that Lucasfilm and “Star Wars” aren’t ready to take a real gamble on unique talents just yet, even when they seem so happy to keep telling us that they are.

Zack Sharf: It’s also worth pointing out that Howard’s a Hollywood veteran, so fans should rest assured this will remain a polished, maybe even elegant production. But he’s also an old-fashioned, traditional storyteller, which means anyone hoping for some narrative edge to this spinoff will most likely wind up disappointed.

But given all the news that has broken since Lord and Miller’s firing earlier this week, the real question isn’t whether or not Ron Howard is a good replacement, it’s whether or not his hiring even matters. It’s become apparent that Kennedy and Kasdan are the real directors at play here, even though their titles may not official indicate such a job. It’s why Lord and Miller were fired. It’s why Tony Gilroy was brought on to oversee Gareth Edwards’ massive “Star Wars: Rogue One” reshoots. The latter was no fluke, and the former is an alarming new wake up call to the real people calling the shots on these movies.

Directors often come and go from projects — just look what’s happening with “The Flash” over at Warner Bros. — but very rarely are they fired months into production. It makes you wonder how much these movies can have any real directorial signature. Whether it was Ron Howard or Guillermo del Toro, for instance, we might wind up with the same end product. Kennedy and Kasdan may have the perfect template for this movie, but that doesn’t mean it requires a talented filmmaker.

Chris O’Falt: I think the big thing with Howard is he can have a light touch when necessary. He’s the rare studio director who can do intense drama, action, but is more than capable of doing comedy or building in comedic elements. He’s the best choice for preserving — and salvaging — some element of Lord and Miller’s comedic elements and while delivering a component action-adventure film. Howard is congenial and beloved, in addition to being a component producer and respected presence on set.

As Kate said, when this movie comes out, Lord and Miller will be part of the story. Who would you rather have out front with your “it all worked out” version of things? Who do you want sitting with Colbert or on the Today Show rehashing this awkward situation? Howard knows how to diffuse a bomb.

Eric Kohn: There’s a bigger question behind all this: What do we want from our “Star Wars” movies? Personally, I was satiated a long time ago (in a movie theater far, far away, on the other side of the country, watching the original trilogy in its late-nineties rerelease). This franchise has been with us for so long that we take its existence for granted. Say what you want about George Lucas’ prequels, but this former aspiring experimental filmmaker was constantly thinking outside the box. The latest “Star Wars” movies, while proficient as entertainment, have also shown a kind of conservatism with respect to mainstream entertainment. Give the audience what they want — a big, slick space opera that’s easy to consume and loaded with relatable characters. The only thing truly daring about “Rogue One” was its grim finale – and I bet the Lucasfilm execs won’t let the franchise go that direction ever again.

I love the idea of hiring visionary filmmakers to play around with studio dollars, but frankly am more intrigued by the wacky possibilities of Luc Besson’s “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” than Han Solo’s backstory. (For what it’s worth: The “Star Wars” comics, which are canon, already do a fine job of filling in some of those details.) The more I consider the possibilities of a Han Solo prequel, the less exciting they become; this character has become such a fully-formed pop culture icon that the very idea of more cinematic adventures strikes me as redundant.

Here’s an idea: Take Han Solo’s name out of the script and let Ron Howard make a fast, fun space western about characters who have barely received much attention in the past. Why not give Lando Calrissian top billing? Donald Glover’s overdue for action stardom. Or, for that matter, maybe Howard could channel his penchant for music films into a concert film about Mos Eisely cantina fixtures Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes. I’d be first in line.

Wishful thinking, I know. We’re getting a Ron Howard movie about young Han Solo. As others have said, it’s a safer bet, and not the least bit surprising. Maybe it’ll be fine. But I have a strong feeling that will also be familiar.

Barry Sonnenfeld casts further doubts over future Men in Black films

Only a year after the Sony Pictures proposed Men in Black/21 Jump Street hybrid, Mib 23, announcement it looks like it could very well be hitting the cutting room floor before it has even got started according to veteran Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld.

Everything was set in motion from James Bobin (Alice Through the Looking Glass, Flight of the Concords) set to direct, Rodney Rothman penning the script and even a title, Mib 23 all ready to go. However, a few months later Jonah Hill put the brakes on the film due to scheduling issues. Now Sonnenfeld has come along and virtually hammered the nails into the Mib 23 coffin with a statement damning the projects existence.

Talking to Digital Spy Sonnenfeld revealed “I wish there were a fourth film. I don’t think Will Smith nor would I be involved. But I love the

Barry Sonnenfeld on Men In Black 4 and the possibilities of it happening

Barry Sonnenfeld, the director of the first three Men In Black movies, has been speaking about a potential fourth movie in the series, and the chance of it happening. For a long time a fourth film has been in development in a potential crossover with the very fun 21 Jump Street films. Alice Through The Looking Glass helmer James Bobin has been attached to the project in the past, but all has gone quiet on the subject in the past few months.

Well, now Sonnenfeld has chimed in on the potentials on the film every happening when speaking to UK outlet Digital Spy. Here’s what he had to say:

After months of rumors and speculation, Sony Pictures officially revealed at CinemaCon last April that the Men in Black and 21 Jump Street crossover was officially happening, under the working title Mib 23. The studio set James Bobin to direct from a script by Rodney Rothman, but Jonah Hill teased in August that scheduling for the movie would be impossible, and he doesn’t think it will ever see the light of day. That was the last we heard about the project, but today we have word from Barry Sonnenfeld, the director of all three Men in Black movies, who reveals why this project, nor Men in Black 4, hasn’t happened yet.

Digital Spy caught up with the filmmaker, who doesn’t think that neither he nor Will Smith will be involved with any future Men in Black sequels in any way. In fact, the only way he thinks the franchise can survive

At some point Channing Tatum went from man-candy (what? It’s been said) to movie star. His star rose when Step Up stole the hearts of romantic comedy lovers that had waited too long for a new dance film. Seemed like Save The Last Dance had been decades before, despite the fact it actually released only five years prior. But, let’s take a look back at Channing’s filmography and see exactly where Tatum became something more.

Sony’s 21 Jump Street Female Spinoff Film Moves Forward With Writer and Director

  • 02 December 2016

  • GeekTyrant

Sony has been planning a female spinoff film for 21 Jump Street since 2015, and the studio is moving forward with their plans to get it into production. They’ve hired Rodney Rothman to write and direct the film. Rothman has some experience with the franchise as he wrote the script for 22 Jump Street as well as the Men in Black and 21 Jump Street crossover film Mib 23, which is also still in development.

According to Variety, the spinoff film revolves around two female cops who go undercover as students in some sort of school setting. The studio previously had two sets of writers writing two different scripts for the movie, but apparently they didn’t like how they turned out if they have Rothman working on the project now.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum were both hilarious in the first two films. They really did a great job with this franchise. They are

The co-writer of 22 Jump Street is working on a Jump Street film, centred on female cops this time.

There are a few films already planned in what probably shouldn’t be called the Jump Street cinematic universe. There are continuing murmurings, for instance, of 23 Jump Street. More recently too, it looked as if James Bobin (Alice Through The Looking Glass) was set to direct a mooted Jump Street and Men In Black crossover movie, Mib 23. That project isn’t actually dead, it’s just gone back into development. It may stay there for a while.

The most likely project to see the light first, though, is a newly-revealed 21 Jump Street spin-off movie, where the main cops this time are women. Rodney Rothman, who co-penned 22 Jump Street, has been working on a screenplay for the project.

One “21 Jump Street” spinoff isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? Two “21 Jump Street” spinoffs. In addition to “Mib 23,” which will see a crossover between “Men in Black” and the comedy/action series whose first two films were led by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, Sony is also developing a female spinoff about two undercover cops.

Rodney Rothman, who wrote both “22 Jump Street” and “Mib 23,” will write the as-yet untitled spinoff; he may also direct. Hill and Tatum will appear in the “Men in Black” crossover, though there’s no word yet on whether they’ll also feature in this latest venture, which will follow the first film’s formula of having two police officers pose as high school students in order to solve what’s surely a most important case.

While the bizarro 21 Jump Street/Men In Black collaboration Mib 23 has apparently been abandoned on the weird movie mash-up idea launching pad, another Jump Street spin-off is moving steadily ahead. Deadline reports that the untitled, women-led Jump Street movie that was announced last year is in the process of acquiring a director, with 22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman in talks to helm the film.

Rothman’s other writing credits include Grudge Match and Late Show With David Letterman; if he takes this new project, he’ll be making his directorial debut. The new Jump Street movie also recently acquired a well-stocked writing team, with Bob’s Burgers writers Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux, and Broad City’s Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, all having been tapped to work on the script. There’s no word yet on which actresses will star in the film, or what sorts .

Female-Led 21 Jump Street Spinoff In The Works

Man, Sony Pictures really seems intent on milking its Jump Street franchise. If you’ll recall, 21 Jump Street was an action/comedy film based on an action TV show that pretty much nobody cared about anymore. Deciding to focus more on humor than action, it reeked of a generic studio cash grab move. Thankfully, it had the then relatively unknown talents of Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm. Under their direction, they not only managed to make a great first film, but they managed to make an ever better film in 22 Jump Street.

Admittedly, I wasn’t very much on board with a 23 Jump Street flick. Given the way the closing credits played out in 22 Jump Street, it really seemed to beat that whole idea to the punch. However, when I heard the idea for a Jump Street/Men in Black spinoff, I thought

Jump Street Female Spin-Off Finds Its Director

Sony Pictures has tapped 22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman to write and direct the studio’s currently untitled all-female spin-off of their Jump Street franchise. We first reported on this project back in April 2015, when Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs were brought on to write the screenplay. Now the studio has brought on Rodney Rothman to not only work on the script, but also make his feature directorial debut.

Deadline reports that Rodney Rothman also recently turned in a draft of another spin-off, which brings the Jump Street and Men in Black franchises together. Back in August, Jump Street star Jonah Hill said that the crossover was “impossible,” stating that he doubts that movie will get made. However, today’s report states that the Jump Street/Men in Black crossover is actually still in development. Insiders claim that there will also be male characters involved in this story,

Female-Led 21 Jump Street Spinoff Moving Forward With Writer-Director Rodney Rothman

  • We Got This Covered

Bringing an end to the radio silence, Sony Pictures has issued a statement of intent regarding the future of its lucrative Jump Street franchise.

Contrary to previous reports, the mooted crossover with Men in Black is still on the table, while Deadline reports that writer-director Rodney Rothman has been brought in to spearhead the female-led spinoff to 21 Jump Street.

Replacing Jenko and Schmidt with two leading ladies – rumored to be Dakota Johnson and Rye Rye’s ancillary characters from the 2012 original – there’s nary a mention of how the story will pan out. For instance, will it be a tit-for-tat remake? Or, in the more likely scenario, a spinoff that retains a similar formula to Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s wildly over-the-top actioner?

One thing Deadline does reveal is that sources close to production say male characters will be involved in Rothman’s offshoot.
