Looks like Will Smith won't be tearing up the silver screen in any more big budget blockbusters: In fact, he's been talking about throwing in the towel on the kind of movies we've come to expect him to make.
Speaking to Digital Spy about his latest effort, After Earth, the actor revealed that he's now open to making more interesting choices when it comes to movie roles. "It's been an absolute necessity that the movie be a blockbuster, but I think I'm going to start moving out of that and finding more danger in my artistic choices", Will explained. "There's something about making movies that just really gets me excited, I love people being wrapped in a story and being able to deliver that emotional punch line at the end of the story", he added.
We can't help but wonder what Will's latest statement will mean for those Independence Day sequels though. We know Roland Emmerich and Bill Pullman will be happy to go ahead with or without him, but we can't help but think that it just wouldn't be the same without Will and Jeff Goldblum on board.
Then again, they could always move the plot along a few years, and hook young Jaden Smith up with a role. Sure isn't he just following in his father's footsteps? May as well pulverize a few aliens while he's at it...
