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?

Will Smith to board The City that Sailed

Posted by LiveFor on July 9, 2009

Director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) and star Will Smith are to join forces again for the fantasy drama The City That Sailed at 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.

Andrew Niccol’s script follows a New York City street magician whose daughter, because of family circumstances, lives in England.

In exploring a lighthouse one day, the girl discovers a room with magic candles and wishes to be reunited with her father, causing the island of Manhattan to break away and drift across the Pond.

It sounds a bit like James and the Giant Peach, but in reverse. Could have some good imagery, but I want to know a little more about the adventures they could possibly have on an ocean going Manhattan. This could be the second film set on the sea that Will Smith stars in. The first being McG’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
