We have known since last November that two back-to-back Independence Day sequels were being planned, although we haven't had much information on the story for either Independence Day 2 or Independence Day 3. MTV Movies Blog spoke with director Roland Emmerich, who dropped a big hint that Will Smith may be the President of the United States in the sequels. Here's an excerpt from their interview:
Will Smith may be the President in Independence Day 2
"It's an alternate reality kind of movie. We pick up the story, what would have happened after this kind of attack? Naturally, the alien technology has changed everything."
Did they rebuild the White House? Who will be president?
"Or, who will be president? Who Will be president? See?"
We also reported back in March that Will Smith was locked in to star in both movies and that they could start shooting early next year.
We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on Independence Day 2 and Independence Day 3 as soon as we have more information.
