Independence Day

(1996)

Strange phenomena surface around the globe. The skies ignite. Terror races through the world's major cities. As these extraordinary events unfold, it becomes increasingly clear that a force of incredible magnitude has arrived; its mission: total annihilation over the Fourth of July weekend. The last hope to stop the destruction is an unlikely group of people united by fate and unimaginable circumstances.

Will Smith Is Back in Talks to Star in ‘Independence Day 2’

Will Smith Is Back in Talks to Star in ‘Independence Day 2’

A sequel to the 1996 sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day has long been in the planning stages, and as it stands now, we will be getting two back-to-back follow-ups with ID Forever - Part 1 and ID Forever - Part 2, the first of which, as far as we can tell, is still being planned for a 2015 release. Though, that may change, pushing the release date of that first chapter to 2016.

Made for $130 million, After Earth was a domestic disaster, bringing in only $60.5 million at the box office. It has since gone onto earn $183 in foreign territories, for a total of $243 million worldwide. Not a total loss, but it certainly tarnished Will Smith's name as the king of the summer blockbuster. It's possible that he now wants to return for ID Forever - Part 1 and ID Forever - Part 2 to restore some of that former glory. It's also possible that after he failed to open this sci-fi stinker, his asking price has been lowered.

‘Independence Day 2’ and ‘3’ Could Happen Without Will Smith

Back in November of 2009, we reported that director Roland Emmerich is planning back-to-back sequels for the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day. It seems that plan is still intact, with screenwriter Dean Devlin said to be delivering both screenplays for Independence Day 2 and Independence Day 3 by mid-December. However, Will Smith may not return to star in these sequels.

Will Smith has reportedly asked for $50 million to shoot both sequels back-to-back, which Fox declined. Nothing is official yet, since negotiations were halted to focus on the scripts, but it seems Fox is willing to make the sequels without Will Smith.
