Another Reboot - Men In Black
LINK

quote:

Chris Hemsworth is in early talks to star in a 'Men in Black' reboot.

The 34-year-old actor - who is best known for starring as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - is reportedly attached to star in the reboot of the Sony Pictures sci-fi action-comedy, The Hollywood Reporter say.


quote:

But Sony has revealed that the new reboot will feature new characters and will build on the sci-fi world in which the 'Men in Black' operate and will be a global adventure rather than just New York City, where the original trilogy took place.

Sources said the studio is looking to have a diverse cast and are reportedly looking for the leads to be a white male, a female of colour and an older man.

They’ve been trying to remake this for a long time

During the Sony leaks it came out that they wanted to do a MIB/21 jumpstreet crossover but they nixed it

So swap out Will Smith with Jada Pinkett Smith and they're good to go.

re: Another Reboot - Men In Black
It would cost more money than they will want to spend likely but it would be cool to bring back Will Smith or TLJ in the Agent Zed type role in order to pass the baton rather than a complete reboot

Why reboot? Why not just build on the universe you have already?

Is that really a reboot though, or just a movie set in the same universe?

I think that’s what they are doing.

The movie is not that old! This is ridiculous. it's not like it's a shitty movie that is 30 years old. It was great in its original iteration. frick all of this shit! I'm damned near outraged.

So... We aren't getting MiB 23?

I liked that concept with Ice Cube, changing tatum and Jonah Hill being on the MIB based out of a Cambodian church at 23 jump street.

re: Another Reboot - Men In Black
MIB (the 1st one) was a Will Smith vehicle that wouldnt have been made without the dynamic between him and TLJ. The concept is lame and cheesy, but those 2 made it work fantastically. You can't just plug in new charcters/actors and expect it to work.

That being said Chris Pratt would be perfect for this movie, but getting the right co-stars is essential. If they just get the highest profile names that fit their racial/age requirements without any regard for the dynamic between the leads, then the movie will be a disaster.
