In the era of reboots, Columbia Pictures is taking its shot with Men in Black spin-off.
Geeks Worldwide CEO Christopher Marc hit Twitter this past Saturday (July 28) to post a first look at the MIB reboot with shots of Thompson and Hemsworth on screen.

The two actors will take on the roles of Agent H and Agent Em. And with names like those, we have to wonder if H&M is getting in on the action.
If you remember the original, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones played Agent Jay and Agent Kay, respectively, and broke records as they watched the flick rake in more than $500 million worldwide.
This won’t be the first time the Hollywood actors work together.

They recently co-starred in Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok last fall, and it’s clear they’ve definitely got good on-camera chemistry.
The reboot is being directed by F. Gary Gray (Law Abiding Citizen, Straight Outta Compton), produced by Men in Black’s original producers Laurie MacDonald (Flight), and Walter F. Parkes (Minority Report), and executive-produced by the legendary Steven Spielberg.
The blockbuster is currently filming and slated to hit theaters May 14, 2019.
