Will Smith — Thanks For The Gun Show

Could Will Smith return for ‘Independence Day 2’ after all?

The star of Focus showed off his guns while filming in New Orleans on Thursday. Will plays a con man who falls for a rookie played by Margot Robbie just as he plans an elaborate theft. Rodrigo Santoro also stars in the film as a car racing team owner also vying for Robbies affection. 2013 Cox Media Group .

Director says he has meeting scheduled with star By DonKaye_ParallelUniverse Sep 5, 2013 4:00PM Although Will Smith previously all but ruled out starring in a sequel to “Independence Day,” the actor may be rethinking that position. Bing: More on Will Smith | More on ‘Independence Day 2’ With director Roland Emmerich gearing up to begin production on the follow-up to his 1996 alien invasion blockbuster, actors Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman have already expressed their interest in returning. But earlier this summer, while doing press for “White House Down,” Emmerich dismissed the possibility of Smith coming back, saying he was too famous and would simply cost too much. Smith himself has seemed cool to the idea as well — but that was before “After Earth” became the first major flop of his career and one of this summer’s more high-profile bombs. How else to get back on track than returning to the franchise that all but made him a movie star in the first place? That may be exactly what Smith is thinking, because Emmerich has now told Digital Spy (via Slashfilm ) with regards to Smith’s involvement, “It’s changing every month. 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, where we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen.” Having a meeting is a long way from signing to star in the film, so there are still excellent odds that Smith won’t be interested. But the fact that he is taking a meeting with Emmerich about the project could mean that he’s at least leaving the door open to return. Meanwhile, Emmerich revealed that the previously announced release date of July 3, 2015 could get pushed back by a year: “I will make it either for 2015 or ’16…Probably right now, as it looks, ’16.” That’s not a bad idea. Not only is 2016 the 20th anniversary of the original movie, but it gets the sequel away from the ticking time bomb that is the 2015 release schedule, which already includes confirmed and tentative releases like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Man of Steel 2,” “Pirates of the Caribbean 5,” “Fantastic Four,” “Jurassic Park 4” and possibly “Star Wars Episode VII.” Will “Independence Day 2” be better if Will Smith comes back on board?
