For years thereâ€™s been rumours of an â€œIndependence Day 2â€ â€“ in fact, I believe the project even got beyond the rumour stage a few years back with preliminary talks talking place between creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin and Twentieth Century Fox. But of course those talks likely never included Will Smithâ€™s accountant â€“ which, itâ€™d now seem, is the reason weâ€™ve yet to see the film.
Talking to Latino Review, Emmerich said heâ€™s got a great storyline ready to go for â€œIndependence Day 2â€ â€“ but it involves Will Smithâ€™s character, and at this stage Fox donâ€™t know if theyâ€™d be willing to cough up the cabbage to bring the Fresh Prince back. Understandable I suppose, Smith comes with a hefty price tag, but on the other hand, how much money is â€œID4 2â€ bound to make!? Shitloads! Smithâ€™s fee would be a drop in the pond at the end of the day!
â€œDean Devlin and I are still set to make a sequel likely because weâ€™ve found some sort of idea and we approached FOX and FOX has not quite figured out how to incorporate Deanâ€™s and my deal, and Willâ€™s (Smith) deal. Will wants to do it in some sort of a package they can live with. So it’s just been in negations now since forever, and naturally FOX says â€œWhy donâ€™t you do it without Will Smith?â€ I said Will is essential for us, for this movie and actually for the audience too. And, so, it’s in limbo and lately the studios are fighting. Like gross players, and Will is a gross player and is probably the only gross player right now whoâ€™s worth his gross. So weâ€™ll see what happens. I would love to do it.â€™â€™
Yeah, guess a sequel with the ghost of Randy Quaidâ€™s character flying a pesticide plane into another alien ship wouldnâ€™t be quite as appealingâ€¦..
