Independence Day 2 & 3: back to back sequel - November 3, 2011, 12:37 PM

Will Smith Demands $50 Million For Independence Day 2 & 3


Director Roland Emmerich and his old producing and screenwriting partner Dean Devlin are now putting the finishing touches on back-to-back sequel scripts to 1996′s Independence Day, the $800 million worldwide hit that first taught them the importance of blowing major landmarks to hell. Fox started working on structuring a deal to sign him back in early 2009, but the world’s last bankable action star was seeking $50 million to shoot both ID2 and ID3 back-to-back, and Fox balked at so large a price tag in combination with Emmerich’s own hefty salary demands to direct. “The delay wasn’t about whether they both wanted to make the movie,” explains one insider, “It had more to do with ‘Whose dick is bigger?’” Nothing has been yet settled, because almost a year ago all concerned parties elected to retreat and focus instead on first getting the scripts right; they’re expected to be delivered to Fox by early to mid-December of this year at the latest. Insiders tell us that Fox is willing to make the movies without Smith, if necessary, but he is what helps make the films a sure thing: Can the stuck-in-neutral movie business, let alone Fox, afford to lose him?
Smith’s extended hiatus from moviemaking; the actor has been focusing more on his family life and assisting his kids’ efforts to in break into the movie business. (Smith is developing a remake of Annie for his daughter, Willow, and producing a sequel to The Karate Kid for his son, Jaden.)
Usually, Smith shoots two movies a year. But in the last three years, he’s made only one film — Men in Black III — which won’t arrive in theaters until next year. As a result, Hollywood has been shorted about five Will Smith movies in the last three years. Run the numbers, and one quickly sees just how much box office Hollywood is missing out on: From 2005 to 2008, Will Smith starred in five films, grossing, in total, a little over $2 billion worldwide. This is not to say that a few four-quadrant Smith films can jump-start the entire industry, but him getting back in the game can only help things.
While Smith hasn’t committed to the ID sequels, Fox can take comfort in the fact that Smith does not have a next picture completely locked. While it’s been announced that Smith is attached (with his son, Jaden) to star in the M. Night Shyamalan film One Thousand A.E. at Sony Pictures, studio insiders tell Vulture that the studio is going extra-slow on preproduction, marking time to avoid any repeats of its hellish MIB3 shoot and doing everything it can to lock down its story line.
“It’s complicated because of where and how [Smith] wants to shoot; he wants to be close to home, to the kids,” explains our spy, adding, “There’s also been talks about him wanting to include Jada and maybe even Willow in the movie, too. [Sony] just managed to get through the mire that was Men in Black 3, and so they’re just trying to avoid anything remotely similar. They want the story straight, and want Will to sign off on it, totally, before they proceed.”

I'm waiting for Smith to finally catch the backlash from trying to fist fuck his family into everything.
It's one thing if it's his Overbrook production and his dime - but I am sick of hearing stories from my friends still in the industry of how he all but demands parts be written in for one of his acting kids or tried to supacede producers in his wife's projects.

Frankly, ID doesn't need Will. If you think about it, that movie was an ensemble cast of great B-level character actors (Goldblum aside). Will was only the hero element. Easily swappable.

Granted, I don't hate on anyone for reaping what the market will bear for your labor, but his ways are getting quite diva'ish and I think he may forget, get a head that's too big, regardless of your box office draw numbers, and Hollywood will slam the door in your face.

Ask Wesley Snipes and Mickey Rourke.

It was fine as a mind-numbing popcorn movie. Now, "The Wild Wild West"...that movie sucked.

But agreed. No need to make one sequel, let alone two. They will surely suck.

Ever since the impeding sale of FR and his new found fortunes, Clemson's tastes have gone high brow.

As such, DCsportbikes.net will henceforth trade under the name, DCRapidtwowheeledconveyencevehiclesofleisureanddel ight.net, fine sir.

I've noticed that as well but I understand trying to get your kids in the biz but it is rather annoying.


It would be sad not see smith or goldblum in it but you your right he is swappable.

Fuck Will Smith. He's gotten too big for his britches.

Shoving the rest of his annoying, pretentious family down our throats just adds insult to injury.

This ninja actually said in an interview that his kids have to contribute. Really? Your 8 yr old must have a music career? How about just letting them be kids and grow up healthy before they're forced to "contribute" to the family empire?

Douche...

I'm betting we see him out with a monocle and a top hat soon.

I love the part about 3/4 way through the movie where the writers are like "OH crap, we're already at 1.5 hours into this thing and we need to give this movie some plot. I know! Let's make the alien mind-meld with President Lone Star and magically he'll be able to read every thought the alien has and explain everything to the movie goers! Perfect!"

eyeroll...

Okay folks, let's be real. Would you all not do the same thing if you had the opportunity?

When I was growing up and wanted money to buy new $100 sneakers my mother and uncle would take me to work with them and do small jobs and they would pay me for it. What's the difference with Will doing the same for his kids? I mean you really don't expect a billionaire to send his kids to McDonalds to mop floor and work the fry machine do you (it would be nice but no). His kids want money, him and jada says they can't have theirs, so they have to work and get their own......he just happens to have the connections in Hollywood... It's no different than Jordan's sons being in the bball world or party rock having a deal cause of who their grandfather is (Barry Gordy)
