Updated August 2, 2018 at 2:21 p.m. EST: A representative from Sony has confirmed Ferguson's casting in MIB, but states that she will not be playing the female lead as Deadline originally reported. The role is described as a "plum role" by the Hollywood trade, however.
Original Story: Mission: Impossible - Fallout's Rebecca Ferguson has been cast as the as-yet-unnamed female lead in Columbia Pictures' MIB, according to Deadline.
MIB is the fourth film in the Men in Black film franchise, with Chris Hemsworth and now, reportedly, Ferguson as the two lead agents. Hemsworth's Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson will also reportedly appear.
Directed by F. Gary Gray, MIB began filming in early July for a planned June 14, 2019 theatrical debut.
