After saying that Will Smith would not be cast in Independence Day 2, Roland Emmerich has reconsidered and is now in talks with the actor.
“I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn’t want to do it at first,” says Emmerich. “Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen.”
If Smith says yes to rejoin the film, he will join Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum, who were previously confirmed by Emmerich, to be in the movie.
Only time will tell what Smith will say, as he has been very open with what he wants from his future projects as an actor, stating that he wants to “find more danger in my artistic projects”.
You never know, he may take the role, but at the same time, he may turn it down as to not get into the same acting role that he used to do.
