Movies.com bagged a chat with Roland Emmerich during a promotional interview for the director’s forthcoming White House Down.
During the interview, Emmerich told the site he’s been interested in returning to both Independence Day and Stargate now that technology has come a long way in the last two decades.
While Will Smith is thought to be a no go because of his salary, Emmerich said he was hoping that the actor would make some sort of cameo however he did confirm Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are on board so far. No word on how either man factors into the plot of the sequel, which Emmerich has said is “unusual.”
Independence Day 2 is due out on July 3, 2015.
