It’s been two decades since we first dipped into the world of Men in Black, and now, in 2019, it’s been completely revamped with Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in the leading roles. But there is one major consistency within this franchise, which is the producing team of husband and wife Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald – and to celebrate the release of this new production, we spoke to the pair all about the allure of this cinematic property.

We talk about the challenges in creating something new while still adhering the imprint of the preceding features, and on the excellent chemistry between the leading duo. They also comment on the changes they’ve seen within the industry between this film and the first, while we also touch upon the forthcoming Gladiator sequel, as they confirm to us when that exciting film will be taking place.

Watch the full interview below:


Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson star as Agent H and Agent M, who employ high-tech weaponry to battle mischievous aliens on Earth. However, the pair also discover a major threat within their own ranks.
