Men in Black: International (stylized as MIB: International) is an upcoming American science fiction action comedy film directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. The film is a sidequel to the Men in Black film series, which is loosely based on the Malibu/Marvel comics of the same name by Lowell Cunningham. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Liam Neeson, with Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, and Les Twins appearing in supporting roles. Emma Thompson also reprises her role from Men in Black 3.

In February 2018, Hemsworth signed on to lead a spin-off while Gray was hired to direct, and Thompson joined the cast the following month.

In May 2018, it was reported that Liam Neeson was in talks to star in the film as the head of the UK branch of the agency. The film’s script was written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway and would be produced by Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes.
