June 25th, 2013 by Marc Comments

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.

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….
