Liam Neeson will bring his very particular set of skills to the "Men in Black" spinoff movie that already stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson.

According to Variety, Neeson is in talks to play the head of the Men in Black's U.K. branch, where the movie begins. Rip Torn played the U.S. boss, Chief Z (Zed), in the first two movies.

So far, that's the most we know about this movie -- other than that it just got a fairly decent first poster.

The movie -- directed y F. Gary Gray -- will be set in the same world as the original trilogy, and will reportedly pick up after the events of the Tommy Lee Jone and Will Smith films. It's reportedly more of an ensemble, though, with Hemsworth and Thompson playing new characters. As the sun now stands, it doesn't look like Smith or Jones will be involved in this spinoff.

The "Men in Black" spinoff recently moved its release date from May 17 to June 14, 2019.
