Roland Emmerich says he doesn't want Will Smith to headline the director's two "Independence Day" film sequels because Smith is "too big a star" now.
"I don't want to have Will. He's too big for a movie like this. It would be a Will Smith movie," Emmerich told EW.com about the upcoming follow-ups.
"It's 'Independence Day.' And 'Independence Day' was always not about one person. It was always a group thing. And [Will] is too big a star."
EW.com said Smith's publicist declined to comment on its story.
