As unlikely as it may seem, the English actress will be making appearance alongside Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as Agent Oh, in the latest movie in the popular alien franchise.

The plot of the third MIB outing sees Smith and Jones return as Agents Jay and Kay, though the majority of the story takes place in 1969, with Josh Brolin as a younger version of Kay. Many sources have been speculating that Jones demanded such a move as a way of keeping his workload down.

Our heroes will be dealing with an intergalactic menace played by Flight of the Conchords/Dinner for Schmucks’ Jemaine Clement, though for now the details of what exactly he is and what he’s up to have been revealed only to a select few. Filming is due to start in New York next month.
