Rebecca Ferguson has been handed a key role in the new 'Men In Black' spin-off.

The 34-year-old actress - who also stars in the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise - is set to appear alongside the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Rafe Spall and Kumail Nanjani in the sci-fi movie, according to Deadline.

Rebecca has also agreed a deal to play the part of Rose the Hat in 'Doctor Sleep', which is based on a Stephen King novel.

The movie is being co-written and directed by Mike Flanagan, with Ewan McGregor starring as the grown-up Danny Torrance.

Carl Lumbly, Alex Essoe and Zarn McClarnon have also been handed roles in the upcoming movie.

Rebecca worked as a model as a teenager, but she recently admitted she "hated" her brief career and even now feels uncomfortable in front of the camera.

She said: "I hated all that. They took us into the audition with little number plates in front of us - cattling us into a prison of prettiness.

"After the first shoot, I turned down every job. Even now, I hate being photographed. I laugh my way along the red carpet. Posing makes me stiff and uncomfortable. I look like Bambi on ice."

Despite this, the actress insisted she doesn't mind stripping off for the camera.

Speaking about her 2013 TV series 'The White Queen', she said: "I did have discussions where I said, 'We're making a very good series and not a cheap porn film, yes?'

"I was the lead and I felt I had to be very verbal about that. Great t**s, though. Normal t**s. I believe in being normal. Get them out there and if they hang a bit - fine."

Men in Black: International

  • 2 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Les Twins, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson

Molly (T. Thompson) is a wannabe MIB agent who’s given a chance by Agent O (E. Thompson) and teamed up with golden boy Agent H (Hemsworth). It’s not so much that it’s bad, more that the franchise wasn’t much to begin with: here, a CGI-heavy story relies far too much on Hemsworth’s insouciant charm. A high-budget non-event.
