Independence Day 2 edges ever closer

January 9th, 2013 by bash Comments

Independence Day 2 could shoot within the year, Bill Pullman has said.

The actor, who played President Whitmore in the 1996 box office smash, confirmed the news to Crave Online. He also said that Will Smith may not star in the Roland Emmerich sequel.

“The Will Smith part of it may be ongoing,” he said. “But I think there’s strategies for both. I like what I have to do in both of them. I’m not in an old age home in a wheelchair being wheeled out for one more moment. It’s a very interesting conception of what happens to Whitmore between then and when it picks back up.”

Although optimistic about the chances of a sequel, the actor remains cautious.

“Nobody’s holding their breath,” he continued, “because it’s been continually plagued.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
