Filming underway on Men in Black spinoff

Chris HemsworthPrincipal photography is underway in London on the Men in Black spinoff starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. 

F Gary Gray is at the helm of the Sony feature that also features Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani, Emma Thompson and Rafe Spall. The screenplay is by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.

The new movie is one of several major Hollywood features to film in the UK this year including Hobbs & Shaw, Wonder Woman 1984, Maleficent 2, Star Wars: Episode IX, The One and Only Ivan and the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. 

The UK continues to dominate as one of a handful of major international production hubs in the world that can support several projects of this size at any one time. 

The resulting pressure on studio space has triggered the development of several new facilities – including a large space in east London – and the expansion of some existing studio sites such as Shepperton
