If Will Smith is smart (and that's in doubt because he decided to do an M. Night film) he should accept whatever role he can get in ID Forever. I welcome it.

I think Will is getting a little too wrapped up in getting his son into the movies.

That's what Hollywood Dads do.

There was some hope last September that Will Smith would reprise his role of Captain Steven Hiller in director Roland Emmerich's upcoming Independence Day 2, but that won't be the case.

Deadline has learned that Emmerich and co-writer and producer Dean Devil will have to take on the aliens without Smith, as he has informed 20th Century Fox he won't be joining the sequel, which is scheduled for a July 1, 2016 release. That date marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 original, which grossed $817.4 million worldwide.

It doesn't mean the movie won't be made, however. Emmerich and Devlin wrote two different versions of the movie – one with Smith and one without him. James Vanderbilt has since been working on the two separate scripts.

Emmerich previously confirmed that a number of the original film's characters appear in the scripts. The 1996 original also starred Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Randy Quaid, Mary McDonnell, Brent Spiner, James Duval and Vivica A. Fox.

I'm guessing that they wouldn't or couldn't meet Will Smith's asking price?

Independence Day: Resurgence Trailer #1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwL3KBNmDhM

A) I totally forgot about this and B) I'm totally on board for this after what I consider to be more a Teaser than an actual Trailer. FYI, I changed the title of the thread to it's new name. So, this isn't a new thread, but the old one.

They made INSANE jumps in tech over the last 20 years.  They got a moonbase and hover-jets and sh*t.  Though I wonder how much of that has trickled down to the rest of the world.  We know the planet is united, but realistically, after the massive destruction and death in the original movie, you gotta figure that the environment is wrecked, that there's massive waves of migrants, unemployment, health crises... we have to have become a third world planet after that.  Even if the military has advanced tech, what's happening to the regular people on the ground?

Why Will Smith won't be back in the 'Independence Day' sequel

Quote
Fox released the trailer for the "Independence Day" sequel, "Independence Day: Resurgence," Sunday afternoon, and the first thing you may have noticed is that Will Smith isn't returning for another battle with aliens. Back in 2014, Deadline reported that Smith turned down working on the film.

Previously, director Roland Emmerich, who will be returning for the sequel, said they simply couldn't afford to cast Smith in the film because "he's too expensive."

"Will Smith cannot come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name," Emmerich told the New York Daily News in 2013. "It would be too much."

Smith received a $20 million payday for 2001's boxer movie "Ali."

So how is the movie dealing with Smith's absence?

Easy: They're killing him off.

Along with the trailer, Fox launched a website called The War of 1996, showing a timeline of events since the first film, which came out in 1996.

Entertainment Weekly spotted a nugget on the timeline showing that Smith's character, Col. Steven Hiller, was conveniently killed April 27, 2007, while testing an alien hybrid ship.

Here's the entire blurb:

While test piloting the ESD's first alien hybrid fighter, an unknown malfunction causes the untimely death of Col. Hiller. Hiller's valor in the War of '96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mother ship lead directly to the enemy's defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and son Dylan.

It looks like Smith doesn't have the chance to even come back in any more potential sequels.

Though Smith won't be back, a majority of actors from the original movie will reprise their roles, including Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, and Bill Pullman.

Maybe the movie doesn't need him. They signed on "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth as one of the film's leads.

The first film became the highest-grossing movie of 1996. It made over $817 million worldwide.

"Independence Day: Resurgence" will be in theaters June 24, 2016.

I wonder if the movie will take place on July 24th and the days leading up to it, the same way the first flick took place on the 2nd, 3rd, anf 4th (which helped since it actually came out on the 2nd even though it was supposed to come out on the 4th).

Of course, what happens if they do that and the release date gets moved up to the 4th?  I'm reminded of The Martian, where the supplemental material was supposed to be happening in real time, and then all of a sudden the movie got pushed forward a month.

Aw, was Mr. Smith holding onto hope.

Will Smith Reveals 'Terrible' Moment He Found Out His Independence Day Character Was Killed Off!

This shocking death was a surprise to many, including Smith — who "had talked" to director Roland Emmerich about working together on a sequel. He told Yahoo! Movies:

   
Quote
"I was working on Suicide Squad during that time… The trailer looks really cool. I'm going to be sitting around with tears in my eyes when that one comes out… It was terrible when I found out my character died."

According to a fake newspaper headline on the website, Smith's character died in 2007 from "an unknown malfunction" while test piloting an alien hybrid fighter.

Dude, you're not reading between the lines. It's Roland. He will use Alien DNA to revive Will's character in the 3rd installment, thus becoming the very thing he use to hunt in the first film. It's a great twist to the tired cliche of Humans Vs Aliens. Ye of little faith...... ;D

"Mysterious Accident" = he can still be secretly alive if Will decides he wants to return.
