Will Smith Is Too Pricey To Save The Planet Again; WON'T Be In Independence Day 2!

Looks like the aliens might stand a fighting chance this time around!

That's because they will NOT be up against Captain Steven Hiller in Independence Day 2 as the sequel can't AFFORD to pay Will Smith to return!

The director of both the original and the next installment, Roland Emmerich, said:

"Will Smith cannot come back because he's too expensive."

As one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, Mr. Smith demands a hefty payday for any flick he stars in, usually upwards of $20-25 million!

But it sounds like Emmerich isn't all too upset about not having Willy back to kick some extraterrestrial ass:

"…he'd also be too much of a marquee name. It would be too much. We have, like, maybe half of the people that you would know from the first film and the other half people who are new."

Independence Day 2 is set to blast off into theaters July of 2015. With no Will Smith though, will YOU still line up to see this movie???

    That's bullshit.

  2. 2

    It's more likely that he insisted on his son having a starring role in it but After Earth killed any possibility of that.

    No Will Smith in Independence Day 2??? Why not offer him less $$$ and a take. He is that movie, with some help.
