Will Smith may be the self proclaimed King of the July 4th weekend but 20th Century Fox isn’t keen nn paying the actor his $25 million per movie price tag to shoot two Independence Day sequels. Smith is also demanding that if the studio wants him not only do they gotta pay his price they also have to give his wife a role with some serious screen time.
Will Smith hasn’t been in a movie since 2008’s flop Seven Pounds and many industry insiders believe Smith isn’t anywhere near the draw he once was. With his high price tag and long list of demands were told director Ronald Emmerich and screenwriting partner Dean Devlin have already began planning on doing the films without Will Smith. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman have reportedly already signed on and will be reprising their roles from the original film.
