Will Smith in Talks for Independence Day II


Will Smith is in talks to film a sequel to his 1996 blockbuster, Independence Day, after initially pricing himself out of the deal...

Back in 2011 when Will Smith was still Mr. Box Office two Independence Day sequels got shut down because Will demanded $50 million to shoot ID II and III back to back [click here if you missed that].

Well that was then and this is now. In a recent interview Independence Day director Roland Emmerich let slip he and Will have been in talks.

Emmerich revealed,
"It's changing every month. To put a sequel together of that magnitude is an enormous undertaking. I sometimes say, 'No, Will Smith will not be in it,' because he didn't want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen."
The first Independence Day cost $75 million to make and was the highest-grossing film of 1996 pulling in a whopping 104.3 million first week. ID went on to make $817,400,891 world wide.

Well $50million isn't alot of money considering their sequels and how much the first ID made - I really enjoyed that movie

Forget Independence day. He needs to make another Enemy of the State, sequel. That movie was a hint of what was going on back then now.

Him doing another ID sequel is identical to Murphy making those Cop sequels and such. They're not artist , they're are whores right now, makings net for the studios. He will be out promoting movies he doesn't truly believe in but he won't trash them in public.

Well, if you have money to waste in Hollywood it's a better look to waste it trying to entertain the public vs wasting it on $2000 nachos and sunglasses.
I personally think the Independence Day/Will Smith train is not worth the production, a waste of studio time, what's the point of doing that again? but hey..whatever

This trend in alien films is only a litmus test as to what's to come. Aliens are actually the demonic of fallen angels and nephilim spawn. Transhumanism (robotic humanoids) is a big push as well.

Scientists are genetically developing brain stimuluses (http://news.yahoo.com/scientists-grow-mini-human-brains-stem-cells-130936086.html) to show and cure public curiosity, but doing so much more in the dark.

Whoever said they need to remake enemy of the states….YES. That was 1997 or 1999 if I’m correct. If they could do all that back then, imagine what they would do now…

And what else can they do in ID? As much as I love that movie…I don’t know what else can be done. They’d find a way to phuck it up and bring in some new actors and actresses that would ruin the whole damn thing.

His career is on the skids. He's no longer the box office draw he used to be.

Some movies are best left to end as they are, and ID is one of those movies. I think that it is very rare that a sequel can out do the first part it the first was really good. Look at when they redid bad boys 2, I think that that was terrible, to much was going on. It was like it messed up the first one. They should put that money into doing some other movies that can one day turn into classics. Why mess up a good thang?
