Will Smith Bows Out of 'Independence Day' Sequel, 'Men in Black' Reboot

After several years of rumors and courting, Will Smith has decided to pass on Fox's planned sequel to the 1996 sci-fi blockbuster, Independence Day.

Deadline reports that though Smith has passed on the sequel, it is still very much in the works. The studio plans to have the film in theaters for July 4th weekend in 2016. That release would mark 20 years since the first film hit theaters on its way to $811 million worldwide and launching Smith's movie career.

Director Roland Emmerich and co-writer Dean Devlin have two scripts that The Amazing Spider-Man writer James Vanderbilt has been rewriting. One version centers on Smith's hero fighter pilot Capt. Steven Hiller and the other crafts a different story without him.

Additionally, Smith is not expected to reprise his role in Sony's planned Men in Black reboot. Sony is looking to find a smarter way of turning a profit on those films which despite high ticket sales often break even due to high end special effects and actor fees.

Were you hoping Smith to see kick some alien butt in an Independence Day sequel and/or a Men in Black reboot?
