ID4 2‘s Pricey Plight

For years there’s been rumours of an “Independence Day 2” – 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 Smith’s accountant – which, it’d now seem, is the reason we’ve yet to see the film.

Talking to Latino Review, Emmerich said he’s got a great storyline ready to go for “Independence Day 2” – but it involves Will Smith’s character, and at this stage Fox don’t know if they’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 “ID4 2” bound to make!? Shitloads! Smith’s fee would be a drop in the pond at the end of the day!

“Dean Devlin and I are still set to make a sequel likely because we’ve found some sort of idea and we approached FOX and FOX has not quite figured out how to incorporate Dean’s and my deal, and Will’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 “Why don’t you do it without Will Smith?” 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 who’s worth his gross. So we’ll see what happens. I would love to do it.’’

Yeah, guess a sequel with the ghost of Randy Quaid’s character flying a pesticide plane into another alien ship wouldn’t be quite as appealing…..
