Rumor: Independence Day 2 and 3 In the Works?!?!
Some say Will Smith is a lock!
There have been a billion reasons for Fox not to make sequels to one of the most popular Sci Fi movies in the last 20 years, Independence Day. From Will Smith charging to much money up front ($20 million up front plus first dollar gross) to the films producers and writers working on something else more interesting to them. The list is long but fairly useless to get into, unless of course you like sifting through all the various reasons studios give to the masses to quiet them.
But today is a new day. It is the first day of the rest of your lives! And with that this day also brings word of the ever elusive Independence Day Sequels!
This from IESB.net:
'IESB has received a tip that Will Smith is now locked for not only Independence Day 2, but also a third installment.'
Granted this is just a rumor but what a rumor to start with. Fox made booku bucks from 'Avatar', but a sequel to Avatar is a few years away and what better franchise to set up sequel shop with then Independence Day to fill the financial void?
I am geeked by this news. The special effects 14 years ago were good but now they would be epic.
Rumor has it that the Independence Day sequel could start filming as early as 2011.
