Will Smith Isn't Coming Back For ID4 2, But Jeff Goldblum's Eager

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. 

Will and Jaden Smith Collect Razzies For After Earth

While there was a surprise here and there at the Academy Awards this year, it was fairly predictable what would win, which is usually how the Oscars go. When the Razzies come along every year as well, it’s often pretty predictable what will win as well, especially with so many cinematic dogs stinking up the joint. 

Will Smith Says No to More ID4

Several years back, it was announced that there would be two sequels coming for ID4, one of the biggest sci-fi flicks of the ‘90’s. But the big question remained…would Will Smith return? Finally the speculation has ended, and Smith is taking a pass. 

Independence Day 2 Aiming to Go Forward, With or Without Will Smith

As long time readers of TG probably know by now, there will be two sequels to Independence Day that will be entitled ID4 Forever Parts One and Two.

Will Michael B Jordan Replace Will Smith in ID4?

We’ve been reporting here on TGD for some time about the sequels to ID4, which Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin hope to get up and running soon. There’s been some debate as to whether Will Smith will come back or not, or whether or not Emmerich and Devlin can afford him. (Smith wants $25 million per sequel, or $50 mil for the whole shebang.) 

Is Will Smith Willing to Go Back to ID4?

It was announced some time ago that there will be two sequels to Independence Day that will go under the moniker ID Forever. Then there were reports going around that Will Smith’s asking price for the sequels was $50 million, or $25 million each. 

Talk of Independence Day sequels continue

You would have thought that with the incredible success of Independence Day that there would have been at least one sequel by now, but there’s only recently been any serious talk of one.

Will After Earth hit or miss?

It looks like the biggest movie of the summer has already hit theaters, even though the summer just started. Iron Man 3 is the box office juggernaut to beat this year, although we still have Star Trek Into Darkness and many other big contenders this season to come.

Men in Black 4 stays on track

The whole concept of the Men in Black comics, and the first MiB movie, was pretty sweet indeed. Back in 1997, it was fresh, innovative, and a lot of fun, although my primary pet peeve was that they showed too many of the best scenes in the trailers and commercials.

ID4 sequel details leak

There’s been talk of a sequel to Independence Day for a while. Actually two sequels, ID Forever Part I and Part II.

Sci-Fi classic Colossus remake to star Will Smith

Colossus: The Forbin Project is a great, classic sci-fi film from 1970 that wasn’t exactly a huge hit, but it’s still a terrific flick that holds up very well.

The men who would be superheroes

We all hear stories about who was up for this role or that role in big movies, and how funny it would be if, say, Tom Selleck played Indiana Jones.

Regular readers know we’re big fans of Independence Day, or ID4 as it’s often called, and we’ve been following the developments of the potential sequels since they were announced last year.

Will Smith is a big science fiction fan, and it’s pretty evident from two of his biggest roles, ID4 and I Am Legend.

Tarantino talks Will Smith and Django Unchained

Jamie Foxx is a great actor, his performance in Ray proved that many times over, and he will probably be just fine in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained this Christmas.

Warner Bros. is currently developing a new movie to continue the story of I am Legend, but the studio may just have to find a way to do it without the star of the first film.

Will Smith talks I Am Legend and Django

There's a prequel in the works for I Am Legend, and like a lot of prequel ideas that explain everything to audiences who apparently need their hands held with everything, it seems just a tad absurd.
