Bill Pullman, who played President Thomas J. Whitmore in the original Independence Day, isn’t sure if he will be back for the rumored sequel. In a recent interview he said, “Somebody has been sending me links to conversations Roland’s (the director) been having about it and what ideas they have for it. I haven’t talked to him about it but it’s a complicated legal thing getting involved with creative control and it’s an expensive movie. I don’t know if it’s a role I’ll revisit, because, in term limits, I think we’ve gone beyond 12 years – but maybe there’s some side of it that he’s angling. He works with writers and they try to find the best idea and I’ve heard a couple of scenarios that would include me and some that wouldn’t so I can’t control it so I don’t think about it.”Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
