IESB has received a tip that Will Smith is now locked for not only Independence Day 2, but also a third installment. The plan would be to shoot both films back-to-back. Whether the studio opts to go the Matrix route and release the two films six months apart or do like the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels and split them by a year remains to be seen. According to our sources, if all goes according to plan, the sequel(s) could shoot as early as 2011.
I'm not too worried. So long as aliens continue to observe US national holidays, so too will there be brave kamikaze Quaids and laughing skull viruses to protect us. God bless Will Smithmerica.
