Independence Day

Story by Jack Foley

THE sequel to Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day is to debut in cinemas in 2015.

Or more specifically, 20th Century Fox has announced that Independence Day 2 will open in the US on the holiday weekend of July 3, 2015.

Emmerich will return to direct and produce but, as yet, none of the original cast – including lead Will Smith or Bill Pullman (who played the US President) – has been announced as returning.

Emmerich does, however, envisage two follow-ups and recently told Entertainment Weekly that the next movies will take place 20 years after the original and would involve mostly new characters, although some of the original survivors may well come back.
