In case you didn’t know, the Independence Day sequel has been set in stone with some of the original cast members, including Vivica A. Fox, who also signed back on for the return of the epic 1996 film.
WESTWOOD, :  The cast and director of the movie "Independence Day" (L- R): Vivica Fox, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Will Smith, Harry Connick Jr., director Roland Emmerich, and Margaret Colin pose for photographers at the premiere of their movie 25 June at the Mann Village Theatre in Westwood, Los Angeles.

But, there’s one main ingredient missing and that is lead actor of the classic movie, Will Smith.
On Saturday, Smith headed over to Facebook to respond to a plethora of comments from fans. One of his replies catered to the very question of: Why are you not apart of Independence Day 2?
Will sent a real answer directly to the fan on FB saying:
I wanted to make Independence Day 2. I worked very hard with Dean & Roland (the producer & director) to find what I would do in my performance that would be new, different and exciting for the fans.
But, as an artist I’m in a very different place in my life. I’m 46 years old and I am impelled to push aggressively toward new places, new challenges and ideas. You will see in my next few films that I am taking HUGE artistic gambles. I am WAY out of my comfort zone. I want this period of my career to be the least Safe I’ve ever been.
But, it broke my heart to not return with the cast. 😦
That will definitely take a huge chuck out of the expectations of the film but hey, sometimes you have to move on. Kudos to Will!
Can the sequel survive without Will Smith’s participation? We shall see….
‘Indepence Day 2’ is set to premiere on June 24th just after Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (June 2nd) of 2016.
Thoughts?
