Bill Pullman gives update on INDEPENDENCE DAY 2
Rumors have been swirling for a long time now as to when or if, we will get a sequel to Independence Day. Now Bill Pullman who played the president in the flick, gives a bit of an update.
While speaking with CraveOnline Pullman gave this hopeful update on the film, “Within a year(They might start shooting), yeah, something like that I guess. I worried about taking this part because it’s heating up.” He said that he talked to director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin about his schedule with 1600 Penn, and they told him to go for the series that they would work around it if Independence Day 2 get made.
One of the sticking points with getting the film made is whether Smith will do it or not. He has expressed some interest on returning to the role of Captain Steven Hiller, but if he doesn’t Pullman said there is a back up plan. ““The Will Smith part of it may be ongoing but I think there’s strategies for both. I like what I have to do in both of them. I’m not in an old age home in a wheelchair being wheeled out for one more moment. It’s a very interesting conception of what happens to Whitmore between then and when it picks back up,” he explained.
So even if Smith decides not to do it, there is a chance that the project could move forward. What say you about this? Could a Independence Day work without Smith?
