Re: Roland Emmerich & Dean Devlin want to make Independence Day 2 (ID4 Without Will Smith, I have no interest in a sequel. The core of ID4 was Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman. Take just one of them away, and it'll be lame. Just like the Jurassic Park sequels. The core of the first film was Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm. JP2 had only Malcolm, JP3 had only Grant. Both of them were pretty lame because of that.
