PARIS — Tommy Lee Jones told Deauville festgoers that the long-awaited “Men in Black 2” is “just a matter of time.”
Jones, one of the stars of 1997’s $580 million-dollar grossing “Men in Black,” said the sequel could come out during 2002, according to French news agency AFP.
Thesp confirmed that the script is being written. “And it will be rewritten until (director) Barry Sonnenfeld is happy with it,” he said.
“The business aspects are all in place. The team will be exactly the same as in the first episode. Now we’re just trying to find a time when Barry, Will (Smith) and myself are all free,” Jones added.
Jones was at Deauville for his roles in two films, William Friedkin’s “Rules of Engagement” and Clint Eastwood’s “Space Cowboys.”
