Okay, so Will Smith won’t be coming back for the next two ID4 movies, but we kind of expected that, even though his career could use a boost these days. Reports had it he’d be way too expensive to bring back to ID4, but that doesn’t mean the whole cast won’t come back.
I still think ID4 is great for what it is, a big, dumb popcorn film where you can turn off your brain and have fun for two and a half hours.
Screenwriter Dean Devlin is putting the finishing touches on the scripts for Independence Day 2 and 3, both of which are slated to begin filming early next year.
Back in the day before movies played on many screens at once, I stood in my share of long lines to see the latest blockbuster.
