Two of the three main characters from Independence Day are set for a comeback in the long-discussed sequel, according to writer/director Roland Emmerich.
Will Smith is “too expensive” to star in the sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day, director Roland Emmerich confirms.
Director and writer Roland Emmerich is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the scripts for back-to-back Independence Day sequels for Fox.
