Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman Will Be Back for Independence Day Sequels

This weekend we learned that Will Smith would not be in the Independence Day sequels because he's too damn expensive. You know who isn't too expensive? Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman. Movies.com spoke with director Roland Emmerich, and he confirmed that Blum and the Man will be back for more alien fighting. As we learned back in March, the two sequels, ID Forever Part 1 and ID Forever Part II, will focus on present-day Earth, when the aliens return and a younger generation is tasked with fighting them off. Emmerich didn't specify exactly how big the roles are that the veterans will play. We wouldn't mind if they just spent the whole movie talking about Will Smith's character and how cool he was.
