Ferguson – who is currently starring in the sixth outing in the MI saga – has signed on to join Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth in the Men in Black spin-off. She has also recently closed a deal to star in the adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep.
Although the character she will play in the Men In Black revival hasn’t come to light, it has been revealed that she will play Rose the Hat in the prequel to The Shining.
The MIB Spin-off will see Em (played by Tessa Thompson) as she goes on a journey to prove herself by joining the London branch of the MIB. She is partnered with “former ace” MIB agent “H” (played by Chris Hemsworth) and the pair soon find themselves embroiled in a murder mystery that will see them crossing the globe.
