With Sony having long been working on a Men in Black spin-off effort, that film has now been given a new release date.
As per Deadline, the previously-announced release date of May 17th, 2019 has now been moved to June 14th, 2019. It’s not a major change, although it does take it out of the firing line of John Wick: Chapter Three; a film also set for May 17th.
This to-be-titled Men in Black-driven effort won’t feature either Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones, and instead it will look to expand the world and landscape seen in the three Men in Black efforts to date. In case you were wondering, too, this film is totally different to the planned MIB 23 crossover of the Men in Black and Jump Street franchises. That crossover seems dead in the water now, with Jonah Hill having gone on record to say that the project was simply too complicated to put together due to the deals that would need to be done.
For this spin-off Men in Black effort, Iron Man’s Matt Holloway and Art Marcum have put the screenplay together.
