There has been a lot of chatter throughout the years regarding a sequel to Independence Day, with the most recent stating that Fox is planning on doing two sequels back to back, which you can read more HERE.
However, today brings forth new news on the possible sequel and it sounds as if it may be gearing closer than we once thought.
Recently Dean Devlin spoke with Heat Vision about working with Roland Emmerich again.
“I can tell you that Roland and I have been working together for the first time in 11 years and we’re every excited about the idea of doing it… Whether or not we can make this happen, if we can get all the pieces to come together, that’s gonna be challenging. But creatively, for the very first time since we did the original, I feel we have a worthy concept, a worthy path to go.”
“I feel like we got it,” he continued. “I think it took a long time, but I feel like we finally got something that really feels like, ‘that’s worth seeing as a sequel to Independence Day.”
At this time there is no word on where they will take the story, but for now it appears as if both Devlin and Emmerich are in the right mind set, so who knows, maybe the pieces of the puzzle are finally coming together.
Regarding casting, nothing has been confirmed, but they are currently in the long process of talking to everybody, so it is on the cards. I guess we will just have to play the waiting game.
