Independence Day – Two sequels in the works? Ah Hell No!
Posted by LiveFor on March 30, 2010
The Aliens are coming, the Aliens are coming. Looks like Will Smith is going to be back for a double dose of Independence Day. Turns out 20th Century Fox have lots of money after the success of Avatar so what will they do next? IESB have some info:
Recently, writer/producer Roland Emmerich [said] Fox just wasn’t willing to cut their teeth over the list price for one Will Smith. Being the only movie-star in the world (an actor who guarantees asses in seats), Smith gets $20 million up front plus first dollar gross. That alone has stopped the studio cold from moving forward. Until now it seems.
IESB.net have the news that Will Smith is now locked for not only Independence Day 2, but also a third installment. The plan would be to shoot both films back-to-back. According to our sources, if all goes according to plan, the sequel(s) could shoot as early as 2011.
However, Roland Emmerich is down to make William Shakespeare thriller, Anonymous and Will Smith is meant to be making either The City That Sailed or Men in Black 3.
Will Independence Day sequels trump those projects? Do you want a sequel?
