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.
