Ferguson has certainly stayed busy since completing Mission: Impossible -- Fallout earlier this year: In addition to appearing in Men in Black, she has also signed on to appear as a villain in the Stephen King adaptation Doctor Sleep. The adaptation is a sequel to King's iconic novel, The Shining, with Ferguson playing Rose the Hat, the head of a cult that feeds on the life force of those that possess the telepathic abilities seen in the earlier King novel.

Principal photography on the new Men in Black film began in London in early July. While specifics on the spinoff's story including Ferguson's role remain under wraps, the new film is expected to position the entire Sony franchise to a wider audience.
