Ask and you shall receive! Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum back for Independence Day sequel

Yesterday we mentioned that Will Smith would not be part of the INDEPENDENCE DAY sequel, but director Roland Emmerich did say some of the other characters might return.

The actors that immediately stood out were Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum. When Movies.com pressed Emmerich on who might return, he revealed that both Pullman and Goldblum we on board. Does that mean that you're on board now? Wait, can we have Brent Spiner too? Dean Devlin who co-wrote the script with Emmerich said he would be down with bringing him back, and out of his apparent coma.

Without having to pay Smith what he commands in salary these days, I'm sure it was easier to get both actors involved. While maybe just a cameo might have been nice, Smith returning to the sequel is not a deal breaker for me.

There's no word yet on what the plot will involve. All we know is that it will take place twenty years after the first which is a gimme since that's about how long ago the first was released.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 is set to release on July 3, 2015.
