    Default Independence Day 2

    Director Roland Emmerich has revealed that two different versions of the Independence Day 2 script have been written.

    One version features Will Smith's character Captain Steve Hillier, Emmerich explained during an interview with The Playlist, whereas the other does not. Emmerich then added that "it's looking good" for the version that does feature Smith.

    Discussing progress on Independence Day 2 generally, Emmerich described it as "a daily battle... the budget, the schedules, the actors..." before saying more optimistically: "It's looking good."

    In June of this year (2013) the long-awaited sequel was given an official release date: July 3, 2015. Shortly afterwards Emmerich said Smith would not be reprising his role from Independence Day because he is now "too expensive", but then last month (September) Emmerich revealed the situation had changed and Smith was now in talks to return.

    Emmerich has already confirmed that Bill Pullman will be back as President Thomas J Whitmore and Jeff Goldblum will be returning as geeky computer expert David Levinson. The original film, released in 1996, followed a last-ditch effort to thwart an alien invasion taking place on July 4 the day of America's annual Independence Day holiday.

    Emmerich wrote the original Independence Day with Dean Devlin and the pair also collaborated on the scripts for the sequel, which have recently had a rewrite from James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, Zodiac).

    This should be dope. Independence Day is one of the best bad movies ever made.

    Just the fact that two versions of a script exist make me think this won't be great...

    Will smith was considered and offered the role of 'Neo' in the Matrix.

    Can you imagine how awful that would have turned out ?

    I think Will Smith is making a huge mistake not reprising his role. It's not like he is making good movies at the moment, for him to say no to this.
