Will Smith might star in 'Independence Day 2' after all
"I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn't want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen," he says.
While that's not a definitive yes, it also sounds fairly optimistic. Smith's last film, "After Earth," didn't do amazingly well at the box office, so he could use a nice bump for his blockbuster reputation. The same goes for Emmerich's "White House Down," which was one of the biggest flops of 2013.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" writer James Vanderbilt is writing the script for the movie. It was said to be due in theaters on July 3, 2015, but now might be pushed until 2016.
