Thor and Valkyrie Reunite As…MEN IN BLACK

The Hollywood Reporter:

Valkyrie and Thor are reuniting.

Tessa Thompson is joining her Thor: Ragnarok co-star Chris Hemsworth in Sony’s Men in Black reboot.

Fate of the Furious filmmaker F. Gary Gray is set to direct the movie, written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The studio has the film dated for June 14, 2019.

Akin to how Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park film series, Sony’s reboot is to feature new characters rather than Agents K and J, portrayed by original trilogy stars Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, respectively, and will build on the contemporary sci-fi world in which they operated.

Fuck yes. Loving how much work Tessa Thompson is getting, she’s really something special.

A New GO! TEAM Song Is A Good New Go! Team Song


“[The song] is an expansion of an idea from a remix I did years ago,” the band’s Ian Parton explains in a press release. “It builds around a looping Steve Reich-esque kalimba line, with a syncopated steel drum response jumping in the gaps, and by the end a full-on choir have joined in this weird math rock African/Asian hybrid thing. The title is inspired by a Mike Watt quote and a sentiment I’m into: that it’s up to you to go out and track down the good shit that’s out there.”

Kumail Nanjiani. Dave Batista. A Movie I Will Be Seeing.

The Hollywood Reporter:

Kumail Nanjiani, who was nominated for a best original screenplay Oscar for his romantic comedy The Big Sick, will star opposite Dave Bautista in Stuber, an action comedy from Fox.

Michael Dowse, who helmed the hockey movie Goon, is directing the feature that is being produced by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.

Nanjiani will play a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu that picks up a grizzled cop (Bautista) who is hot on the trail of a brutal killer. The driver finds himself thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he has to keep his wits, his life and his five-star rating.

I definitely think this will need to get retitled before release, but I am all about this movie.
