Will Smith ‘Too Expensive’ For ID4 Sequels – He’s Not Returning

willsmithYep the planned 2 sequels for ID4: Independence Day – ID Forever Part 1 & Part 2 will not feature star Will Smith on the grounds his salary demands are too high. Director Roland Emmerich has told the New York Daily News, during his promotional tour of White House Down, that “Will Smith can not come back because he’s too expensive, but he’d also be too much of a marquee name… It would be too much.” –  Vanessa Martinez, Shadow & Act.

Plot details on the films are scarce with suggestions these sequels take the story with Smith’s sons character headlining.

ID FOREVER PART ONE releases on JULY 3, 2015 through 20TH CENTURY FOX
