I can't help but think that his sudden reconsideration of the role has something to do with how badly After Earth was, and how many critics said the best days of his career were over.

Could be...or Maybe something Emmerich said/showed to him about the script piqued his interest.

That's what I was just thinking. I mean I'm trying to think of a great movie he's starred in lately but not much come in mind.

This is a good move, the first one didn't age to well I have it on Blu Ray but if they can they can come up with a good script then i'm all for it. ;)

All he has to do is get his son involved and the film will be totally doomed.

omg if he gets his son to be in this I'm done

I bet this is a result of reaction to After Earth.

For thos who have watched After Earth: Does the movie suck because of M Night, Will Smith, or Jayden Smith?

i dont think a sequel to independence day is necessary. it might be good at its time but at this point it might not exciting and the film itself looks corny as time passes compared when it initially released.
