Men In Black 2 Script Changes After Terrorist Attacks

25 September 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The script of Men In Black 2 is being changed in response to the recent terrorist attacks on New York. Filming for the sequel in New York was postponed after the tragic events at the World Trade Center. The film originally ended with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones's characters fighting an alien worm at the top of the World Trade Center. Reports claim that the action in the final scenes will remain the same, but will be set in a different part of the city to avoid offense to victims of the attacks. The New York City Mayor's Office Of Theater, Film, And Broadcasting has issued permits to allow filming to resume in New York, meaning the Men In Black 2 cast and crew can go back to work. Other films delayed by the atrocities were Spider-Man and Stuart Little 2. »

He says, "There was a lot of money involved in some of them. But I felt I needed a change of pace. "I'm no angel and I didn't want to get this reputation as some kind of champion of the good and noble." Instead, he has decided to play a murdering psychopath who gets his kicks from shedding blood in the William Friedkin thriller The Hunted. Tommy Lee Jones and Connie Nielsen co-star. »
