So Jeff Goldblum will be back! That’s the great news! Bad news? Will Smith does not look to be part of this 20 year sequel. Can’t believe it will be 20 years when this is released in 2016. Without knowing the rest of the cast or the plot, I think the movie will do ok, but without Will Smith on board it will never become a blockbuster. If Will Smith were to join then the film would make 4x the amount it will make without him.
After years of discussions, Independence Day 2 has officially been given the green light by 20th Century Fox but sadly Will Smith will not be back to reprise the role of slick alien killer Captain Steve Hiller, although the sequel will see the return of some familiar faces. So let’s see what we know so far, shall we?
The film has been given a May production start, and the studio are closer than ever to securing Roland Emmerich as the sequel’s director. Fox previously announced that the movie will hit cinemas on June 24, 2016, meaning the second instalment of the action flick will come exactly 20 years after the original.
