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.”
