Maybe Will Smith Will Be In The Independence Day Sequel Or Sequels After All, When They Eventually Happen

Now that the blogosphere has trained all journalists to be future-focused and drill their interview subjects for “news,” a candid filmmaker can find themselves giving parts of the movie making process more public exposure than is perhaps ideal.

For example, Roland Emmerich, director of this year’s White House Down, the hilarious 2012 and Independence Day and its promised sequels, had previously said pretty clearly that Will Smith won’t be coming back to fight the aliens again.

Now? He’s adopting a never-say-never approach and is getting ready to negotiate with the actor.

Here’s what Emmerich told Digital Spy:

I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it. Because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned. We want to talk about it again. Anything can happen

Including After Earth. That certainly happened.

At the same time as maybe getting Smith on the rebound, Emmerich doesn’t seem sure that the next Independence Day film will meet its projected 2015 release date. Probably for the best – that year is stuffed to bursting.

I will make it either for 2015 or 16. Probably right now, as it looks, 16.

2016, the year of… well, the first Star Wars spin-off film, some secret Marvel projects, the second of the new Terminators and… lots more. Just not as much as 2015.
