Stargate

We’ve heard plenty about Roland Emmerich‘s work to make Independence Day 2 happen and trying to get Will Smith to return to star, but Emmerich is already looking beyond that.

In a recent interview, the director talked about how he’d also like to reboot Stargate and make a new trilogy out of it. Stargate was originally co-created by Emmerich and Dean Devlin, who also worked with Roland on Godzilla, The Patriot, and the past and future Independence Day flicks. The first movie was released in 1994 starring Kurt Russell and James Spader. After the movie numerous TV series, video games, and an animated series followed.

Roland Emmerich Has Been Talking To Will Smith About The ‘Independence Day’ Sequel

Will Smith In Independence Day

Will Smith was once the one star you could bank on making a successful summer blockbuster. But apart from recent efforts like After Earth, a turn to more dramatic projects, and molding his kids’ careers, we haven’t seen the actor grace the big screen much.

When plans for a series of Independence Day sequels started to arise, one of the first questions was how many actors would be coming back to reprise their roles. Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum were confirmed to be one of the major stars to return, but according to Roland Emmerich, Smith’s price tag may be too high just to reprise a role. That was back in June. Now the director is singing a slightly different tune as he has revealed that he has been in talks with the actor.

Roland Emmerich Says Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman Will Return For ‘Independence Day 2’

Independence Day

We just found out that Will Smith might not be appearing in the two planned Independence Day sequels because his price tag is far too high. Some would argue that doing the movie without Smith’s face plastered on all of the posters, no matter what the price is, is pointless. But they’ve been prepared to make the sequels without the megastar for a couple of years now at least.

While doing a Q&A session for his latest movie, White House Down, director Roland Emmerich was asked about what other stars of the first movie we might see in Independence Day 2 we might see return if not Smith, to which he replied that both Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman were on board so far.

Will Smith Too Expensive For Independence Day Sequel

Roland Emmerich has been talking about an Independence Day sequel for sometime now, which happens to coincide with the release of his upcoming film White House Down. We’ve learned that the sequel will be broken up into two parts – with the first installment being titled ID Forever, Part I, will take place 20-25 years after the events of the first film, and will feature the return of some characters. Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum are reportedly returning to duty, and that some of the younger characters from the first film will be back as well. But the one person who isn’t coming back is Will Smith, due to the fact that he is just too expensive.

But Emmerich also says that Smith is just too much of a marquee name and that his stardom will get in the way of the film.

‘White House Down’ Trailer: Destroying U.S. Landmarks Is A Habit For Roland Emmerich

White House Down Header

One can’t walk out of a Roland Emmerich film without seeing the White House being annihilated. Sure we’ve seen aliens fire upon it, colossal waves wash over it, and climate changes freeze it, but White House Down will be director’s first film that is directly set in the historic landmark.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx play Secret Service agent John Cale and the President of the United States, respectively, who must work together to find out why international terrorists brought the White House down, what their true intentions are, and to save Cale’s daughter Emily (Joey King). A new four-minute trailer has popped up online, and it appropriately shows how the White House is brought down in a way that only Emmerich could think of, which is massive.

Check out the new trailer for White House Down below.

White House Down Header

The first trailer for Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down was surprisingly somber and lacked the action-packed punch you would expect from an Emmerich film.

This new trailer, however, is the polar opposite of that. In just a matter of weeks, we are already getting trailer number two for the film, and there is a lot of action to look out for. Not only that, but make sure to look out for some hilarious buddy cop chemistry between Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum.

Hit the jump to see the new trailer.

Roland Emmerich Confirms Two ‘Independence Day’ Sequels In The Works

Independence Day

Roland Emmerich is pretty experienced when it comes to destroying the White House. His newest directorial effort, White House Down, shows audiences that the world’s most recognizable house isn’t as secure as you may think. But fans of his are more likely to recognize the greatest destruction of the White House in Independence Day.

Talks of a sequel started to arise in recent years, but what those talks contained in terms of story were withheld from the public. But now that White House Down is coming up, an Independence Day follow-up could be Emmerich’s next project, as new details on the eventual sequel are coming out. Check out below when the story could occur and which character might reappear.

‘White House Down’ Trailer: Like ‘Die Hard’ In The White House But With Channing Tatum

Don’t adjust your computer screen or think you are suffering from déjà vu: White House Down is like another Die Hard in the White House kind of film, only thing is, it looks like the production budget for the film is a lot higher than the $80 million that was spend to make Olympus Has Fallen, Antoine Fuqua’s recently released political action film starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman.

Watch the trailer here below.

The plot is pretty much the same, too: A secret service agent’s knowledge of the Presidential detail and White House will aid him in his mission to save the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx) from certain death. The opening quote about the country’s dark secrets bringing about our nation’s downfall could also be a possible plot twist in the film, but for now, let’s just go with the fact that White House Down is Die Hard in the White House, except with younger and sexier faces.

Independence Day

Last time we heard about the discussed sequels to 1996’s Independence Day, it was just whispers and not much was thought of the rumor at the time.

Now it looks like the movies are much more likely to happen than was once thought. So much so that it’s being reported that director Roland Emmerich and screenwriter Dean Devlin are finishing up work on scripts for Independence Day 2 and Independence Day 3, with hopes being that they will be completed by mid-December. The plan as it stands right now is for the movies to be filmed back-to-back, which is quickly becoming the preferred production method for two planned sequels.

Coming out of TIFF this year, one film that got a shockingly good amount of buzz was director Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous. Now, good buzz isn’t something usually said within the same sentence as Emmerich’s name, but it appears as though that may be changing.

Now, according to Deadline, the director has gotten a brand new writer for one of his upcoming projects, with the hopes of continuing this good streak.
