Will Smith in talks for Independence Day 2

September 5th, 2013 by bash Comments


Will Smith is set to have talks about reprising his role as Captain Steve Hiller in Independence Day 2.

Director Roland Emmerich confirmed the news despite saying just a few months back that he thought the actor would not be involved because of his salary.

“I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen,” the filmmaker told Digital Spy.

Little is known about the film’s plot or cast however Emmerich confirmed that a number of the original film’s characters appear in the script by Dean Devlin and himself.

The sequel is set for a release on July 3, 2015.

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.
