Roland Emmerich may be preparing for the worst with two versions of “Independence Day 2” (one with Will Smith and one without) but at least one thing remains clear: the “After Earth” star hasn't grown sick yet of the sci-fi genre with a newly announced project on his plate, while elsewhere Tim Roth and Gérard Depardieu plan to delve into soccer's behind-the-scenes dealings and Michael K. Williams switches sides of the law. Notoriously picky in his choice of starring roles and tending toward material with more commercial prospects, Will Smith has decided to firmly stay the course with his latest project, “Selling Time.” Scripted by Dan McDermott (“Eagle Eye”), the familiar-sounding film centers around a man who cuts seven years off his life so that he can relive the worst day of his life over and over again. So "Groundhog Day" meets "Source Code?" No word on exactly how or why »
