Emma Thomspon returns as Agent O, while Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick, Silicon Valley) provides his voice to the alien Pawny, the only survivor of an alien race who has been hiding on Earth pretending to be a chess set.
Who is the director of Men in Black: International?
F. Gary Gray directs. He has previously directed The Fate of the Furious (2017), Straight Outta Compton (2015) and Law Abiding Citizen (2009).
Are Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black: International?
Men in Black: International makes a clear departure from earlier films, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones not returning. The film is branded more as a spin off than sequel. Director F. Gary Gray stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that Agent Jay and Agent Kay are not being replaced, but that 'International' is "...simply adding to their team”.
In the trailer, we do catch an Easter egg paying homage to Agent Jay and Kay. We do hope the characters make a brief cameo at the end of the film perhaps on a mission elsewhere – which wouldn't be too outlandish, given MIB's tradition of ending each film so far with an out-of-body, intergalactic glimpse into the universe beyond Earth.
