★★★☆☆ In Clint Eastwood's Space Cowboys (2000), the chisel-jawed actor-director and fellow geriatric pals Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner realise their life's dream, blasting into space to rescue a falling satellite. Keeping their feet on terra firma and throwing down intergalactic knowledge rather than punches, the Star Men of filmmaker and astronomy enthusiast Alison E. Rose's intimate and yet expansive documentary have spent a lifetime gazing skyward in wonderment.

"There will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film]," MacDonald told Newsbeat.
The producers added that they consider the first three "Mib" films to be a complete trilogy that focused on the relationship between Smith's Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K. With the fourth flick, they say, they're looking to tell a new story in the "Men in Black" universe.
"Now we are looking at a reinvention," Parkes told Newsbeat. "But it's a wonderful world to get back into."

The producers of “Men in Black 4” hopes to reinvigorate the franchise by adding a female agent to the mix.
According to the BBC, producer Laurie MacDonald promises that “there will be a prominent Woman in Black in the fourth [film],” which she’s developing with husband Walter Parkes. While 1997’s “Men in Black” seemingly inducted Linda Fiorentino’s character into the agency at the end of the film, she was conspicuously absent from the two sequels. “Men in Black II” featured Lara Flynn Boyle as the villainous Serleena, but the franchise has yet to have a female agent take a lead role.
Original franchise star Will Smith is currently not attached to the project, but Parkes hedged that the actor could be lured back, telling the BBC, “Never count Will out.”
The original movies centered around Smith’s Agent J and his alien-hunting partner K (Tommy Lee Jones) as they tracked »

The BBC news beat report that Sony Pictures is developing "Men in Black 4" with the intention to feature a lead female character for the new film. "There will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film]," said producer Laurie MacDonald. MacDonald’s producing partner and husband Walter Parkes said, “We are quite early on in it," he said. "We sort of looked at the first three in retrospect as a bit of a trilogy."
Parkes continued, "We tried to tell a story about those two characters and that relationship," Parkes said. "It sounds silly because it's a fun, science fiction comedy but when you work on these things you sort of try to find some thematic basis underneath it. Now we are looking at a reinvention," Parkes added. "But it's a wonderful world to get back into." On the inclusion of actor Will Smith appearing in the future sequel, »

We guessed that Sony may take the fourth instalment in the Men In Black series to a very different place, and we weren’t wrong as it has been revealed that Men In Black 4 will in fact be led by a female character.
Speaking with the BBC, producer Laurie McDonald had the following to say:
“There will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film].”
So prominent doesn’t necessarily mean lead, we know, but this is great news for the franchise.
“We are quite early on in it,” he said. “We sort of looked at the first three in retrospect as a bit of a trilogy. Now we are looking at a reinvention,” Parkes added. “But it’s a »

"Men in Black" has always been a boys club, as the title suggests, but the film's producer promises the next film will feature a woman in a leading role. Vulture is reporting that "Men in Black" producer Laurie Macdonald has plans to introduce a female lead into the forth installment of the franchise. While the film is still in early development, Macdonald said the new film will start to shift the focus off of Agent J and Agent K's story line, to a new, possibly female agent. I'm surprised the studio didn't just reboot the "Men in Black" universe with all women and call it "Women in Black". It would have been a very on trend move, in light of both the new female-led "Ghostbusters" and "Oceans 11" films. With this news, and the fact that "Men in Black" now shares a universe with the "21 Jumpstreet" franchise, the future of the »

Back in September, producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald revealed that their languishing sequel Men in Black 4 will actually reinvent the entire franchise, with plans for a new reboot trilogy. The producers also revealed that original stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will likely not be back to reprise their roles as Agent J and Agent K, but very little is known about the story at this time. The producers recently spoke with BBC News Beat, where Laurie MacDonald revealed that they are eyeing a "prominent" female character to become a new agent.
"There will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film]."
Back in May 2013, screenwriter Oren Uziel signed on to write the screenplays for both Men in Black 4 and 22 Jump Street, which was released last year. Leaked emails from the Sony hack revealed that the studio was considering a Jump Street and Men in Black crossover, »
Men In Black 3’s $624 million box office haul back in 2012 proved that it is still a hot Hollywood commodity. Since then there have been several rumors about the direction that a potential fourth instalment will take. Both Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith have insisted that they’ll “consider” returning, while there has previously been speculation that the property may be rebooted without the pair. Men In Black’s producers came out and revealed a new facet to the franchise, confirming that it will feature a prominent woman in black. The producing team of Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes, who worked on the first three instalments to the Men In Black franchise, and are doing just the same on the fourth film, too, made this admission to Newsbeat after being quizzed about its status. McDonald revealed: There will be a prominent woman in black in »
Three years ago, Sony injected a new lease of life into its dormant Men in Black series with a threequel, welcoming back both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as Agent J and Agent K, respectively. Though a worldwide box office haul of $600 million paints the follow-up as a success on paper, fans and critics were less than impressed, and today brings word of the studio pulling out the trusty neuralizer to wipe away any memory of the 2012 sequel.
That’s because Laurie MacDonald and producing partner Walter Parkes – the creative minds engineering a Men in Black 4 – are keen to reinvent the cult action serious with a new installment, one which may feature “a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film].” Could we be seeing the return of Agent L?
Plans for the next chapter in the sci-fi universe are, as one would imagine, still very much in the early stages. »

Back in September, principal photography got under way on Universal Pictures' long-awaited Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, a.k.a. Bourne 5, with producer Frank Marshall sharing the first photo of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. Production is still under way, with new photos arriving from the Kreuzberg, Germany set, thanks to We Got This Covered and several other sources. While all of these photos feature Matt Damon in action, one of them reveals his face has been bloodied quite badly, despite the smile on his face.
We last saw Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, which wrapped up a trilogy of adaptations based on Robert Ludlum's spy novels. After that adaptation hit theaters, Matt Damon said that he wouldn't come back for another follow-up unless director Paul Greengrass came back, and they had a story they both wanted to work on. Matt Damon revealed this fall that the script, »

After schooling bad guys in the deft art of close-quarters combat on the rooftops, today’s brand new batch of set photos for Bourne 5 see Matt Damon take to the streets, presumably on the hunt of a possible lead.
Hopping from Spain to London and now to Germany, Damon’s grizzled Jason Bourne returns to the fray, reuniting with director Paul Greengrass following the pair’s work across both The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. Set to arrive almost a decade after the release of Ultimatum, early reports tease that Greengrass’ soft reboot will be situated in a post-Snowden world, exploring some of the pressing themes of information control, democracy and cyber-security in the year 2015.
As for today’s new set photos, Coming Soon confirms that filming is taking place in Kreuzberg, Germany, with action veteran Vinzenz Kiefer lending a hand as a stunt double. »

Production rumbles on today on the set of Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass’ long-awaited action sequel Bourne 5, and Coming Soon has spotted the pair atop a London rooftop capturing an intense sequence.
This isn’t the first batch of set photos to surface from Universal’s yet-to-be-titled follow-up, with fans getting a glimpse of a muscular Damon back in September when the film set up shop in Tenerife, Spain. Hopping from one European location to the next, today’s slew of images will be familiar territory for ardent supporters of the series, and we imagine that both Greengrass and Damon have a few tricks up their sleeves after collaborating across The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum.
Primed to release almost a decade after the actor’s last foray as the title agent, Universal has understandably kept story specific under wraps at such an early stage. »

Riz Ahmed, star of Four Lions and the Jake Gyllenhaal-led thriller Nightcrawler, is teetering on the edge of stardom. In 2016, he’ll join Gareth Edwards for a trip to a galaxy far, far away for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first installment in Disney’s high-profile Anthology series set adjacent to the core trilogy. It’s a remarkable coup for the actor and next year is certainly going to catapult him into the limelight now that Variety has confirmed that Ahmed will join the burgeoning cast of Paul Greengrass’ Bourne 5.
Starring opposite The Man From U.N.C.L.E.‘s Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassell, Julia Stiles and of course, Matt Damon, Ahmed has landed a “key role” in the starry action sequel, assuming the part of a CIA specialist. What remains unclear, however, is whether he will help or hinder Jason Bourne’s globe-trotting adventure when it arrives in theaters next year. »

Variety is reporting that "Nightcrawler" actor Riz Ahmed has joined the untitled "Bourne 5" film which is currently filming with director Paul Greengrass ("Captain Phillips") and actor Matt Damon ("The Martian") reprising his role as spy Jason Bourne. Variety points out that Ahmed will play a CIA tech specialist who plays a key role in the film.
Ahmed was the top choice for the role, but scheduling conflicts with Disney and Lucasfilm's "Star Wars: Rogue One" prevented him from signing on earlier for the role. Ahmed joins a cast that includes Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Scott Shepherd, Tommy Lee Jones, and Julia Stiles.
Matt Damon starred in three "Bourne" films which included "The Bourne Identity" (2002), "The Bourne Supremacy" (2004), and "The Bourne Ultimatum" (2007), which grossed a total of $1 billion at the worldwide box-office. Actor Jeremy Renner ("American Hustle") starred in the spin-off, "The Bourne Legacy", in 2012 with writer-director Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote all three "Bourne" films. »

Shooting on Bourne 5 is currently under way, but the cast continues to grow, with Riz Ahmed the latest addition to the highly anticipated release. Matt Damon will obviously (and thankfully) be reprising the role of Jason Bourne, and the impressive cast so far also includes Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Scott Shepherd, Tommy Lee Jones, and

Ahmed will play a tech specialist at the CIA and was top choice for the role, but scheduling conflicts with the "Star Wars" spin-off previously seemed to prevent his involvement. Dates have now been worked out.
