Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones launched this franchise with director Barry Sonnenfeld back in 1997 and continued on with two sequels, but Men in Black International finds a new generation of agents taking over, with a bit of connective tissue to the previous films that does not involve Smith or Jones. Collider's own Steve Weintraub is on the floor at Brazil Comic-Con (or CCXP) where Sony Pictures is due to host a panel on Saturday. Sony hasn't confirmed that Men in Black International is the official title of the reboot spin-off flick, but we wouldn't be surprised if it is based on what we already about the film. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, who starred in the first three, are not coming back for global, as the story instead focuses on the characters played by Hemsworth and Thompson.

The original three Men in Black movies were box office smashes, collectively bringing in more than $1.6 billion at the box office. Additionally, a major player in the movie is Liam Neeson's character - the head of the Men in Black organization in London.

Men in Black International will hit theaters on Friday, June 14, 2019. Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) has also joined the cast, which includes Kumail Najiani and Rafe Spall, F. Gary Gray is directing Men in Black International from a script by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.

Emma Thompson is reprising her role as O from Men in Black 3.
