Who could think that after nearly two decades, a sequel to Independence Day would actually come to fruition? But it appears as if the alien gods are smiling down on us as a sequel has been confirmed with a release date set for July 3, 2015. So, with that, will any cast members return to the fold?
It was recently announced that Will Smith will not return as the character Captain Steven Hiller, but the folks over at Movies.com have heard via Roland Emmerich, that Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are on board to star in the sequel.
Even though it was announced that Will Smith won’t return, Emmerich is hopeful that he will at least have a cameo in the upcoming sequel.
At this time plot details are slim, but it is said to be set twenty years after the original film, and Earth has rebuilt itself and we have grown due to the alien technology, but the aliens will return.
