Will Smith Turns Down Independence Day II


Back in September director Roland Emmerich let it slip that Will Smith was in talks to revive his role as Captain Steven Hiller in a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day [click here if you missed that].

He spoke too soon...

According to reports Will Smith has turned down the role and now the producers are moving in a different direction.

Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan is being considered for Will's replacement.

either it's a shit production or they fired him and making it sound like he said no...no one turns down a sure blockbuster like this worth about $30Mill in Hollyweird.

@5:42pm if the money isn't right they do. Some stars get a salary plus a percentage of profits...like Tom Cruise. Apparently the money wasn't what Will thought he deserved. The movie is going to flop without him...he is the movie.
Hell Joe Brown turned down his show because they offered him $16 mil and he wanted $20 mil- PER YEAR.
We know you would do anything for a dollar honeybum

He probably didn't have as much creative control as he would like. After Earth anyone? He's more interested in promoting scientology. becuz no NO ONE fires will smith and egos trump $$ for some stars.
And independence day II eight years later? really?

I heard Joe Brown's pay looked like gas money in comparison to what Judy gets. I'm done with the Smith family. New. Blood. Please.

I'll take an old Will Smith film over something new any day.

I could watch a Kevin Hart weekend marathon and not even crack a smirk. That dude just doesn't cut it for me...looking like a Tootsie Roll with eyes and teeth.

If they want Will in the movie, they know they gotta come correct and not try to low ball him so I don't think it's the money. Will probably just feels that he doesn't need to do every movie. I recall reading somewhere that Will questioned why he was doing it. He made great money as a rapper; made a great transition to film and is one of the highest paid black actors. I see no harm in him picking and choosing his projects.

Yeah cosign with the posters that said the money was not right, hence why he turned it down, this was an entertaining movie and will flop without him. he was the bad ass sexy ass star of that movie, I just don't see anyone with the swag to carry that part like Will did.

WTF??!!!!!! said...

LMAO @ 9:23--spits out juice!!!

Kevin Hart<---looking like a Tootsie Roll with eyes and teeth.

WILL SACRIFICED HIS FORWARD MOMOMENTUM BY TRYING TO FORCE PROMOTE THOSE TWO TALENTLESS KIDS AND HIS DYKEY FAME-LEECHING WIFE.
HE REALLY F'd UP WHEN HE MADE A BIG BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE PROMOTING A BOND BETWEEN A BLACK FATHER AND SON.. THE CRITICS RIPPED THAT AFTEREARTH MOVIE TO SHREDS AND AFTER I SAW IT I UNDERSTOOD THE REAL REASON... ASIDE FROM THE FACT THAT IS WAS SLOW AND JADEN CAN'T ACT FOR SHIT, IT DID DEPICT POWERFUL FATHERSON NURTURING IMAGES VERY RARELY SEEN IN HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTERS

Honey Bun said...

Bee Gee said...

@12:45, yea , that's probably the real son, a bond between a black man and his black son, they can't have that happening, you better be just another dead beat baby daddy, who isn't married to his baby momma, and has 6 other baby mammas.

Lmao @ 9:23pm.

Boom said...

@9:23
I thought it was just my wife and I. I've seen this dude kevin so many times and only laughed once.
I dunno. Maybe I need to get high first . Who's got da kush?! Lol

After Earth was good until the end, but that's a M. Night Shyamalan movie for ya! Looks good in previews and are crappy as heck. Can't really blame Will for dodging another alien movie after just doing one.
