The Men in Black spinoff just got way more interesting.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will be starring in the remake of the ’90s classic alongside dancing duo Les Twins, Laurent Nicolas Bourgeois and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois.
Les Twins became YouTube sensations with their street dancing videos, and went on to perform alongside incredible performers such as Beyoncé and Jay-Z for their On the Run Tour and the Cirque du Soleil in Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour. They also won the grand prize on Jennifer Lopez‘s NBC show, World of Dance.
The sci-fi adventure movie, which will start production in London in July, will be relaunched on a global scale with a modern twist. The plot and character details are mostly being kept a secret. Kumail Nanjiani, the Pakistani-American actor of The Big Sick, will also be included in the cast as well as Rafe Spall of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Steven Spielberg is returning to the project as an executive producer. F. Gary Gray, who directed The Fate of the Furious, will be directing the project and it’s being written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The studio has the film slated for a June 14, 2019 release.
