F Gary Gray In Talks To Direct MEN IN BLACK Reboot

If all goes according to plan, Men in Black will hit theaters on June 14, 2019.

Deadline reports that director F. Gary Gray has been hired to helm a new iteration of "MEN IN BLACK" for Sony Pictures and Amblin Entertainment. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are back as producers and Steven Spielberg is exec producing. I'm not sure what they would have called that movie. The "Men in Black" spin-off, which was announced in September of previous year, was being fast-tracked by the studio, with Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, the writers behind "Iron Man" and "Transformers: The Last Knight", penning the script.

The spinoff will be an action-comedy and Gray has a proven track record in both, having directed 1995's Friday as well as the third highest grossing film of 2017, The Fate of the Furious, which grossed $1.2 billion.

After striking it big at the box-office with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Sony are confident that Gray can emulate that success and he has the track record to do so.


If he decides to take on the project, he'll be working off a script from Matt Holloway and Art Marcum.

The Men In Black will be back, but perhaps not as we know them. This Men In Black movie is said to stick to the same tone of the original movies just with a new cast.

This new "MEN IN BLACK" film will be grounded in the original premise, of a covert government agency policing and monitoring alien life whom have been integrated into planet earth's population by hiding in plain sight disguised as humans.
