Look for aliens of the female persuasion, says makeup master Rick Baker
Forget alien goo. The biggest challenge facing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in ”Men in Black 2,” now in production for a summer 2002 release, is a host of estrogen-charged extraterrestrials. ”The big lead baddie is a female alien — and we’re doing a number of other female creatures for this one as well,” makeup wiz Rick Baker tells EW. In addition to the archnemesis (played by ”X-Men”’s Famke Janssen), the Ray-Banned heroes will also battle familiar foes. ”The worm guys from the first film are coming back in a big way,” Baker says. ”They’re practically the stars of the movie.” Alas, Baker says there will be no worm women — though given that worms are hermaphrodites, we wouldn’t rule anything out.
