Now we are in the age of reboots, and one of the highly anticipated titles is no doubt “The Men in Black”!
It has been reported that comedian Kumail Nanjiani will be joining the cast of the “Men in Black” spin-off at Sony Pictures as the alien sidekick, Pawny.
Nanjiani’s character has been described as a “funny, wise-cracking, sex-driven alien” from a civilization that exists on a Chessboard.
The “Silicon Valley” star will join the stellar cast Chris Hemsworth who plays Agent H, a goofy James Bond type characters; Tessa Thompson who plays Molly, a woman who knows the existence of aliens; and Liam Neeson who will be the leader of the U.K. branch of the Men in Black.
It has been confirmed that previous “Men in Black” cast Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be joining the spin-off.
The reboot will be directed by F. Gary Gray of “The Fate of the Furious” with Steven Spielberg as the executive producer.
