“Independence Day” Sequel w/ Will Smith and Most of Its Original Cast On The Horizon

"Independence Day" Sequel w/ Will Smith and Most of Its Original Cast On The Horizon

Independence Day director Ronald Emmerich has reportedly finished penning the screenplay for the alien invasion thiller’s sequel. The 1996 blockbuster, along Will Smith, starred Vivica A. Fox, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman. According to The Lantern, who spoke to Emmerich Monday night, the director is trying to reunite most of the original cast for Independence Day 2.

“We’ve talked to him, but naturally he wants to see a script, which I totally understand.” Emmerich says of Will Smith’s intentions.

The sequel has been in the plans for approximately 10 years; actually, Tambay wrote about it at the old site HERE. There has even been talks about TWO Independence Day sequels to be in the works. Independence Day 2 is not expected to be released before 2014. Emerich says production will begin soon enough, “I’d say hold tight, t’s happening soon.”

I wonder how long it will take; if it’s really happening after all. I’m also curious if Vivica Fox will join the sequel, since the film likely catapulted her career. By the way, I just looked at Fox’s imdb and she shows to have NINE films in post-production; she’s been quite busy these days.

Are you looking forward to this? Would you like to see Smith reprise his role? Vivica?

Anywho, we’ll definitely keep you updated on any developments.

Another example of how Hollywood is creatively bankrupt and completely out of visionaries. Two “Independence Day” sequels?!! Yeah, that will save things… great.

I agree JMac. I do hate what she’s done to herself. She was such a natural beauty.

Stop hating so much on Vivica. I wouldn’t mind seeing her in this. She’s been in a lot a crap (and had lots of surgeries) since the first one but has a certain authentic kick-ass vibe that some black actresses don’t have.

“By the way, I just looked at Fox’s imdb and she shows to have NINE films in post-production; she’s been quite busy these days.”

That’s because she took Samuel L. Jackson’s advice.

Will Smith needs to quit doing these lousy sequels to forgettable films and do more movies like “The Pursuit of Happyness” and “Ali”, films that actually test his acting abilities. Independence Day was a mediocre film and it’s severely dated, no secrets there.

Maybe Vivica will go search for her old face for this sequel.

I can’t wait to see this! Vivica needs the big screen in her life again! LOL!

Don't Do it Will

PLEASE NO VIVICA A FOX!!!

I wish that Will Smith would do more movies but not prequels or sequels to his earlier films. When Men in Black III comes out in 2012, it will be his first major starring role in four years even though he has 38 other projects in various stages of development.
