Emma Thompson has been cast in Sony's upcoming Men in Black spinoff that is set to arrive in theaters on June 14, 2019.

The actress will be reprising her role as a leader of the Men in Black organization Agent O, who was last seen in 2012's Men in Black 3, noted The Hollywood Reporter.

Emma joins a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in the lead roles alongside Liam Neeson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall and dancing duo Laurent Nicolas Bourgeois and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois.

Hemsworth will be featured in the film as an MIB agent with Tessa wanting to join the alien-fighting force, Empire reported. Hemsworth and Tessa previously teamed up together in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok.

The untitled Men in Black spinoff, which takes place primarily in London, is being directed by Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious helmer F. Gary Gray from a script by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum.

Steven Spielberg is executive producing with Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald producing.

The Men in Black series, which followed a secret organization that protected earth from alien threats across three films, previously featured Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the lead roles. The two actors are not expected to return.

Emma will next be seen in Johnny English Strikes Again which arrives in theaters on Oct. 26 and in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, set for release on April 12, 2019.


Stars support Demi Lovato on Twitter: 'She is a light in this world'
Celebrity friends of Demi Lovato, including Lady Gaga and Ellen DeGeneres, have voiced their support for the singer on Twitter after she was hospitalized Tuesday following a drug overdose.

Lovato, 25, was taken to a Los Angeles hospital after a drug overdose incident at her Hollywood Hills home. She was reportedly treated with Narcan, an emergency treatment used for overdoses.

The pop star's publicist released a statement Tuesday confirming that Lovato was awake following earlier reports that she was stable and alert.

"Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support. Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now," the statement said.

Lovato posted on social media in March that she was six years sober. In June, Lovato then released a new song titled "Sober" that hinted at a relapse.

"We should all wrap our arms of love around Demi Lovato. I am so happy you're alive. Thank God. If I know my monsters as well as I believe I do, we all wish you self-compassion and inner peace. And may you receive the love so many have for you. #ImConfidentInDemi Demi, I love you," Gaga said.

"I love @DDLovato so much. It breaks my heart that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family," DeGeneres said.

Other celebrities who shared their well wishes included Nick Jonas, Lovato's ex Joe Jonas, Ariana Grande, Kesha and Kehlani.

"Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi. All of us love her and need to pray for her to get well. She is a fighter. #prayfordemi," Nick said.

"Like all of you I am thinking of @DDLovato right now. She needs our prayers and support. We all know how strong you are Demi. #prayfordemi," Joe said.

"I love you #ddlovato," Grande said.

"Love u @ddlovato thinking of you + your family + fans + friends praying for you and thinking of you," Kesha said.

"Sending huge recovery love to Demi. this is a very personal moment and respected delicately. all we can do is send our best wishes and love. addiction isn't simple nor easy. you're very loved, @ddlovato you'll beat this as you did before," Kehlani said before sharing her thoughts on addiction.

"Addiction isn't one of those things you can put yourself in the shoes of. you had to have fought the fight yourself or had it rip your family apart your entire life... even then, the latter is still not the same thing. this isn't the time for the picking apart or making light of," Kehlani continued.

'Roseanne' spinoff 'The Conners' to debut Oct. 16 on ABC
The Roseanne spinoff The Conners is to debut Oct. 16 on ABC.

The show will premiere alongside the network's other new comedies The Kids Are Alright and The Rookie, as well as its returning hits black-ish and Splitting Up Together, the network said Tuesday.

ABC announced last month it had ordered a first season of 10 episodes of The Conners, with John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman reprising their roles from Roseanne.

"After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family -- Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. -- grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns -- with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails," a synopsis said.

Roseanne initially ran 1988-97 and remained popular in re-runs. It earned high ratings when it returned this spring with fresh episodes and was renewed for an 11th season, which was swiftly canceled after star Roseanne Barr made a racist comment on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to U.S. President Barack Obama.

Barr has since repeatedly apologized for what she has called a joke, but she was widely condemned for the comment.


Sam Rockwell, Lin-Manuel Miranda working on new FX series
Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams have signed on to star in FX's eight-part adaptation of Sam Wasson's Fosse biography.

"FX orders untitled 'Fosse/Verdon' limited series, starring Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell," the cable network tweeted Tuesday.

The Hollywood Reporter said the project will examine the personal and professional relationship of director-choreographer Bob Fosse and dancer Gwen Verdon.

Their daughter Nicole and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda are among the producers on the limited series.

"My mother and father have one of the greatest love stories ever known," Deadline.com quoted Nicole Fosse as saying in a statement. "They were extremely complex people with an indestructible bond, loyalty and trust that endured both fantasy and reality. Finally, we have a creative team with the talent and wisdom to tell the story."

Fosse and Verdon were married from 1960 until Fosse's death in 1987 at the age of 60. Verdon died in 2000. She was 75.
