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.
