Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones launched this franchise with director Barry Sonnenfeld back in 1997 and continued on with two sequels, but Men in Black International finds a new generation of agents taking over, with a bit of connective tissue to the previous films that does not involve Smith or Jones. The movie's social network pages reveal that it's called Men in Black International, a confirmation that comes just days before Sony Pictures is set to host a panel for the film at Brazil Comic-Con.

Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson star in the new film, which is directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, Fate of the Furious). Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, who starred in the first three, are not coming back for worldwide, as the story instead focuses on the characters played by Hemsworth and Thompson.

All that considered, a title like Men in Black International fits perfectly in line with the feel and focus of the movie.

Shortly after, THR reported that Thompson and Hemsworth would be joining the cast, and it is now confirmed they will be playing Agent M and Agent H.

The rest of the ensemble is pretty impressive and includes Kumail Najiani, Rafe Spall, Liam Neeson, and last but not least Rebecca Ferguson as what we assume to be the film's villain.

Emma Thompson is reprising her role as O from Men in Black 3.
