"This is not going be the James Bond of French-American romantic comedies," the director and actress says of the follow-up to 2007's "2 Days in Paris."

Julie Delpy said at the party following the April 26 Tribeca Film Festival showing of 2 Days in New York (her follow-up to  2007's 2 Days in Paris) that this would be the last of the series.

“Unfortunately, this is not going be the James Bond of French-American romantic comedies,” said the actress-director.

At the Q&A following the Tribeca Performing Arts Center screening, Delpy answered questions with co-star Chris Rock and joked that she “really wanted Steve Harvey to do it.”

For his part, Rock said he enjoyed working on a film where his co-star is also directing: “Whenever you make a movie, there’s always the questions, ‘What does the star say?’ or ‘What does the director say?’ It’s nice to get it from one person."
