*The sequels to “Independence Day,” “Independence Day 2″ and “Independence Day 3″ starring Will Smith, just may have a special twist.
An MTV blogger, who interviewed director Ronald Emmerich, wrote that the president of the United States will be Will Smith.
“It’s an alternate reality kind of movie. We pick up the story, what would have happened after this kind of attack?,” Emmerich is quoted as stating. And he goes on to drop these so-called hints:
“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?”
The bottom line is that Will Smith is expected to star in both ID2 and 3. Look for the films in 2012 and 2013 and don’t be surprised if he’s portraying the POTUS in both.
