If Independence Day came out in 1996, shouldn't this film be Independence Day 21?

Oh, they could always retcon it and say that he survived. It worked for Ian Malcolm.

Re: Brent Spiner cast in Independence Day 2

It does beg the quest of did the alien actually kill him, or was he still alive and just being used as a psychic meat puppet

I thought it was only the original Jurassic Park novel that had Ian Malcolm near death; the movie left you with the impression that he was going to make it.

As far as Dr. Okun, I thought he was dead, too, though if I had to guess, they'll probably go with the "psychic meat puppet" option (though you'd think that would have fried Okun's brain in the process).

The crazy drunken guy who flew the plane into the ship while going "UP YOURS!!"

And didn't they check for Doc's pulse afterwards and what's his name shock his head?

When the aliens abducted Russell Case and experimented on him... sexually... they cloned and genetically modified him as a perfect specimen of human and alien sexuality, a reproductive machine if you will. When he was killed in the Battle of Area 51, the metal plate they implanted in his head instantly transferred his consciousness into the new clone body in a secret mobile reconnaissance facility/wheeled home the aliens left behind to spy on Earth. Now, as their infiltrator, operating under an alias in the American Midwest, he's been assigned to procreate with an extremely fertile human female and produce as many human/alien hybrid offspring as possible so that they may become the first generation of the new ruling class of Earth.

The film needs to start shooting yesterday in order to make its release date and Smith has been reported as being out for more than a year. I won't be surprised if he does a surprise cameo but he is not starring.
