It seems that the 2012 director's biggest film might be sequelized after all... perhaps. Latino Review recently spoke with director Roland Emmerich about the possibilities for a sequel to the 1996 summer blockbuster Independence Day.
"Dean Devlin and I are still set to make a sequel or sequels, 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."
