Independence Day 2 edges ever closer

January 9th, 2013 by Marc 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.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
