Back in September director Roland Emmerich let it slip that Will Smith was in talks to revive his role as Captain Steven Hiller in a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day [click here if you missed that].

He spoke too soon...

According to reports Will Smith has turned down the role and now the producers are moving in a different direction.

Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan is being considered for Will's replacement.
