I’m not exactly sure how Roland Emmerich plans to do an Independence Day sequel, but now we officially know that he’ll be doing one without the star of the first film, Will Smith.
The sequel is set to come out in roughly two years from now and it’ll loosely play with characters that we kind of knew from the first one. Again, I’m not sure how (or even why) this sounds like a good idea for Fox or Roland Emmerich, but it’s happening regardless.
Smith apparently cost too much money, which shouldn’t be true after After Earth came out and literally bombed across the nation.
Oh and White House Down sucks, so don’t bother seeing it. Barely feels like an Emmerich film.
