Well it looks like Roland Emmerich is going to have to use the version of the script that doesn’t include Will Smith, because the star has reportedly decided against appearing in the Independence Day sequel. The “Will He? Won’t He?” game has been played for a number of years now, and even though a new report states that Smith has decided against starring in the sequel, nothing has been officially confirmed just yet.
The sequel, however, will soldier on with or without Smith. Emmerich and writing partner Dean Devlin turned two versions of their script over to screenwriter James Vanderbilt: one centering on Smith’s hero character Steven Hiller, and one without him entirely. Apparently Smith hasn’t broken the final news to Emmerich just yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we hear more. (Via Deadline)
