Will Smith Won’t Star in ‘Independence Day 2′


2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Celebrity Sightings

When Fox Studios announced that there would be a sequel to the film Independence Day many speculated that Will Smith would return for another run with the epic movie. But it looks like history won’t be repeating itself. Deadline reports that the actor will not be appearing in the sequel.

The sequel is set to hit theaters July 4 weekend, 2016 and will mark the 20th anniversary of the original. Independence Day grossed a cool $811 million worldwide and catapulted Will’s career as the most bankable actor in Hollywood.

So who will take Will’s place as the star of Independence Day 2? Rumor has it that our crush Michael B. Jordan is a front runner for the coveted role. Lettuce pray.
