Liam Neeson set to star in new Men in Black spin-off

This just seems right, doesn't it?

Liam Neeson is in talks to join a Men In Black reboot, joining Thor Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. According to Variety, the Antrim man would play the head of the Men in Black organisation in London, where the movie begins.

The spin-off of the 1997 classic is being directed by F. Gary Gray, who directed Straight Outta Compton in 2015, with Steven Spielberg as the executive producer. Seems like an all-star cast already.

The original movie starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, with the series making it as far as a Men in Black 3.

Unfortunately, you will have to wait until May 2019 to see Leeson in this role, but he does have a new movie coming out in November of this year. Windows has a massively star-studded lineup, with Daniel Kaluyah, Michelle Rodriguez, Viola Davis and Ireland's very own Colin Farrell.

So get used to seeing Neeson on the big screen in the next year. We're just hoping he channels his inner Will Smith and does the theme song for the new Men in Black movie; he definitely has it in his locker.
