A couple months ago, director Roland Emmerich said Will Smith is not going to be in Independence Day 2 because he's too expensive and too famous, but now, it looks like the situation has changed.

Will Smith in Talks for INDEPENDENCE DAY Sequel; 2016 Release Date Likely; Director Roland Emmerich Also Talks STARGATE Franchise Reboot – Although Independence Day director Roland Emmerich previously stated that star Will Smith wouldn't be involved in the film's sequel, in part for fear of him overshadowing the cast, it now looks as if the two are at least entering into talks.

Roland Emmerich Has Created A Gay Character For Independence Day Sequel – Coining the right headline for this story was near-impossible, and I think I failed. I don’t to push it as news that one of the characters in Independence Day 2 will be gay. Rather, I want to suggest some of the questions this might prompt about typical representations in Hollywood tentpoles, and this movie in particular.
